Rezko trial: Cellini on the line

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

The jury hears a fairly lengthy tape of GOP insider William Cellini and Stuart Levine talking.
The two talk about Tom Rosenberg, who wanted business with the state board. Rosenberg allegedly went to Cellini for help when Rosenberg's deal with a state board stalled.

Cellini tells Levine he told Rosenberg he might have to deal with Tony Rezko and Chris Kelly.

Rosenberg allegedly predicted to Cellini that two people are "being monitored every step of the way -- that’s two people, Tony Rezko and Chris Kelly,” Cellini said Rosenberg told him.
“Now that scares the s- out of me.” Cellini told Levine.

from the way levine is testilying it seems quite possible that this is just a vindictive payback to rezko for not participating in levines schemes. what better way to obtain retribution than to falsley accuse the man who would not be cooperative. they seem to have tousand of hours of tape recordings with levine saying rezko this rezko that but no rezko on the tape. well maybe rezko did have the power but maybe levine just fantasized about him being in the loop so he could impress hius freinds etc

Anon- are you joking? What about the hospital deals? This is an absolute corruption trial. Rezko it seems in this up to his hips. Wait until they start the money trace. If goes to Rezko, sure via somebidy else but the money then it ends up there.

What about the Hospital conversations. then the meeting at the diner. yeah Rezko wasn't there but he it seems he was the Wizard behing the curtain- Levine.

BTW Rezko is on tape.

I READ THE ARTICLE ON FOX NEWS YESTERDAY, SOUNDS TO ME THAT OBAMA IS MORE ENVOLVED THEN WHAT HE WANTS PEOPLE TO BELIEVE. HE TOOK CAIMPAIGN MONEY FROM THAT MOVIE DIRECTER THAT IS WITH REZKO. THAT WAS PROBABLY DIRTY MONEY TOO
