Reporting with Natasha Korecki
In an attempt to paint witness John Wyma as a traitorous friend, defense lawyer Sheldon Sorosky is asking some pointed questions. He's referring to Wyma's agreement to cooperate with the government, ultimately leading to wiretaps against his friend Rod Blagojevich.
"So you elected to be a spy against your friend for the government, didn't you?" asked Sorosky, earning yet another objection from the government.
Judge James Zagel, who has already admonished Sorosky numerous times this morning, issued a warning.
"It looks to me like you're done with this witness, because you've already started with your closing argument," Zagel said. "So finish up."
But Sorosky continued with his questioning, continuing to rack up objections. Wyma's now off the stand and court will continue this afternoon with a new witness: Children's Memorial Hospital CEO Patrick Magoon.
