Rezko trial: Why Cellini wasn't recorded

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)


After Stuart Levine started cooperating with federal authorities in early 2006, he attended a dinner party with William Cellini. Though Levine was secretly recording numerous individuals who were targets of the government, he wasn't asked to record Cellini.
Why?
“It was our understanding that Mr. Cellini was represented (by an attorney)," FBI Special Agent Daniel Cain testified. "It is the policy of the FBI not to record when a person is represented in the investigation."

But Levine did record others...

They include former alderman Ed Vrdolyak, former Ald. William Singer and Nicholas Blase, the indicted mayor of Niles.

BIG WINDY; I have a question--F.B.I policy not to record a person who is represented or is it the law? I wonder when Blagojevich lawyered up, and what about Obama, he better get one fast. After this trial is all over, all the good lawyers in Chicago are going to be taken and Obama will end up with a public defender.
