Reporting with Natasha Korecki and Dave McKinney
Robert Blagojevich is pinned down on a recording where he's heard agreeing that money is a big factor in the decision of who to appoint to Barack Obama's Senate seat.
"There's context that's required here, your honor," Robert says, looking to Judge James Zagel for help.
Zagel turns to him and says, "You have a lawyer." Robert says OK.
Later, Robert answers questions about his pushing his brother to try to get a Cabinet position as head of Health and Human Services.
Robert Blagojevich makes no apologies about egging his brother on.
"I'd be proud," Robert Blagojevich said. "It would be a good fit. If he said he wanted to be Secretary of Defense, I'd laugh at him."
While the witness isn't laughing, the courtroom gallery did. At the defense table, his former governor brother smiles big, moving forward in his chair.
