Blagojevich prosecutors: We can't release all Blagojevich wiretaps. We're still investigating.

Prosecutors in Rod Blagojevich's case gave an interesting response today while discussing a defense request to make all their wiretaps public.
They hinted, pretty strongly, that their investigation continues.
"They really have no idea what's going on in that regard," Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Niewoehner said today of the defense's knowledge of their ongoing investigations. "There continues to be investigative reasons why we couldn't disclose all the wiretaps."
The FBI recorded hundreds of conversations in the fall of 2008 before the former governor's arrest. Blagojevich's lawyers recently filed a request that prosecutors make all the recordings public.

I thought the defense got all the "all" tapes in the first trial? Did they just get the tapes that the prosecution was going to play in court?? What is taking the fed's sooo long, we're going on 3 years...Now they're saying that they were "not" totally prepared for the first trial but they will be for this one...

Still investigating = more charges ?
