Blagojevich trial begins Thursday June 3, 2010, Reuters articles ties Obama to trial
“Among the 24 counts of fraud, conspiracy, bribery and racketeering that could land Blagojevich a long prison sentence are charges he dangled President Barack Obama’s vacant U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder or demanded a cabinet post for himself in exchange for naming an Obama aide to the seat.”
“Another possible wild card in Blagojevich’s long-awaited trial that begins on Thursday is whether it will entangle Obama and his aides in Illinois’ hurly-burly political theater.”
Now, for the rest of the story, stay tuned for the next article from Citizen Wells.
