We hear another secretly recorded phone call first thing this morning. It's between chief witness Stuart Levine and his longtime business partner Bob Weinstein. The call comes in April 2004, just after Levine testified Monday he took Rezko to the Standard Club downtown and told him they both could make big money. Levine told Rezko that Rezko could walk away with $3.9 million.
Levine tells Weinstein of his meeting with Rezko and says a plan to take kickbacks from finder's fees involving a state pension funds will go through:
“Because Tony’s fine with all of it.”
Levine told Weinstein: "He said, 'well what do you need to proceed?' I said, your permission."
That conversation backs up Levine's testimony yesterday where he described how Rezko responded to the $3.9 million proposal.
