Star witness at Rezko trial tells co-schemer: 'We'll be protected.'

Prosecutor Chris Niewoehner played a recording today at Tony Rezko's trial where star witness Stuart Levine could be heard laughing and joking as he schemed with another man to make money off a hospital project.
"We will be so protected, you cannot imagine," Levine could be heard saying on tape.
The irony, of course, is the FBI caught them on tape. We're hearing his words played in a courtroom, with more than a dozen reporters scribbling down notes. And Levine's explaining the conversation from the witness stand.

In the conversation, Levine was arranging to "accidentally" bump into Jacob Kiferbaum while Kiferbaum dined at an Eggshell Cafe with Pam Davis. Davis was pushing for a deal for Edward Hospital. Levine boasts that he plans to wear his "Tommy Bahamas" sweats to the meeting.
