Gov Blagojevich’s high-powered lawyer, Ed Genson states he will not represent Blagojevich for his impeachment trial. Neither Sam Adam Jr & Sr who were also retained for his criminal case. Reasons given – Blago has no chance at a fair trial and Genson et al will not be able to present an adequate defense. Then there’s the matter of money, discovery and inevitability. Why add a loss? Fitzgerald has limited much of the discovery because of the criminal investigation. Blago has yet to be charged with anything and Fitzgerald’s theatrical arrest resulted in absolutely nothing but a fast impeachment, which the Illinois legislature wanted anyway. It was an assist that should be looked in to. And once Blago’s impeached, Fitzgerald can take all the time he needs since blago is no longer in a position to do damage. It’s all a joke.
And they drew in Mrs Blagojevich for what? If blago did what is alleged – it’s criminal. But what they did to blago’s wife and children for the sake of sensationalism was just as criminal. ill resign to keep any type of evidence private.Maybe he’ll resign.
And what about barry’s team? When was the last time you saw Emanuel and Jarrett in public with barry? Will Jesse Jackson Jr (or Sr) be visible on Inauguration day?
