Lawyers for Rod Blagojevich attempted this morning to learn whether prosecutors intend to call former Blagojevich fundraiser Tony Rezko. Before they could respond however, the judge interrupted.
"I don't think I would force either side to make that decision now," he said. "There's a name for witnesses like Rezko, which I will not repeat."
The judge suggested that such witnesses turn out to NOT be good for the side that calls them. There was no further discussion.
