Rod Blagojevich attorney Lauren Kaeseberg just complained that the prosecutors -- who directly face the jurors -- are making faces as the ex-governor speaks on the stand.

Kaeseberg said prosecutors were also having "animated discussions" in front of the jury during Blagojevich's testimony.

"We just ask that they stop making faces while he's testifying," Kaeseberg said.

Prosecutors Reid Schar said the team does confer before making objections but he didn't think they were making faces.

"We'll be mindful," Schar said. "I don't think that's the case."

Judge James Zagel said he hadn't noticed anything but: "I'll watch the government very carefully."
