As the prosecution in the Rod Blagojevich federal corruption trial
prepares to rest its case against the former governor this week, Judge
James Zagel told both sides that he will wait to call the jury back
until the start of
next week to give the defense team time to prepare their witnesses. The
camp plans to argue
that the former governor was given bad
advice from attorneys who worked in the governor's office.
In court today, Blagojevich's former chief of staff and fundraiser John Wyma testified that he became uncomfortable with the level of fundraising the Blagojevich camp engaged in during 2008.
