Rod Blagojevich Trial Day 22: John Wyma on deck

| No Comments

It's Day 22 at the Rod Blagojevich trial, and the prosecution is nearing the end of its case with John Wyma expected on the stand; Wyma, a former confidant of the former Illinois governor, allowed his conversations with him to be wiretapped, giving the feds a leg up in its probe. Sun-Times federal courts reporter Natasha Korecki has her Day 22 preview and look back at the five weeks of the trial.

We know the prosecution is making a spash, what with those f-words wiretaps of Blagojevich plotting to get something for filling Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat and other pay-to-play schemes. But are the prosecutors making a case? Korecki analyzes the case so far.

Last week I dropped by the federal courtroom in Chicago where Blagojevich is being tried and chatted with Blagojevich, the most cheery defendant; my column here.

The Sun-Times Blago Blog brings riveting updates through the trial day.
