Rod Blagojevich Trial to Begin: Media Team in Place
Jury selection begins tomorrow morning in the corruption trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Team Blago is ready
Blago says he and wife Patty will testify at trial.
"I never could understand these politicians who said they never did anything wrong and then when they're given the chance to say they didn't do anything wrong, where it matters in court, they don't do it. So, yes, I'm gonna do it and Patti's gonna do it. We have the truth on our side," said Blagojevich.
Lawyers confirm that both Valerie Jarrett and Rahm Emanuel have been supboenaed. Also on trial: Blago's brother Robert. Witnesses against them: a slew of politicians and businessmen being rewarded for their testimony with promises of leniency for their own misdeeds. One who won't be taking the stand for the Government: Tony Rezko. Why? He's too much of a wild card. Here are a few with starring roles.
