What to Expect Today:

Prosecutors are expected to call Rod Blagojevich's old college friend, Alonzo “Lon” Monk, to the stand Tuesday. Monk could be one of the government's last major witnesses, though at the first trial he was often defensive and not as effective as expected. Monk could talk about Blagojevich's earlier years as governor and the alleged 2008 shakedowns.
