Reporting with Natasha Korecki and Dave McKinney
Rod Blagojevich is back on the stand as his defense lawyer Aaron Goldstein begins a redirect examination.
Prior to letting the jury back in, Judge James Zagel gave Blagojevich another warning that his antics under cross-examination wouldn't fly while his own lawyers questioned him. He's referring to Blagojevich's tendency to talk over his own lawyers' objections and answer prosecutors' questions anyway.
"You did not stop speaking, and that's fine," Zagel tells Blagojevich. "This is not true of opposing council. ... I don't want to have to admonish you about this in the presence of the jury."
Zagel is telling Blagojevich he can't talk over prosecutors' objections in the same way.
"Thank you, judge," Blagojevich responds.
Goldstein is jumping right back into the Jesse Jackson Jr. allegations.
