The federal prosecutor who led the team that convicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich is leaving the U.S. Attorney’s office to join a prominent Chicago law firm.
During a full day of cross-examination at Rod Blagojevich’s corruption retrial, federal prosecutors repeatedly tried to use the former governor’s own words to discredit him and paint him as dishonest.
Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s second trial on federal corruption charges begins on Wednesday, but it won’t be a simple repeat of the first trial.
Federal prosecutors accused Rod Blagojevich of “out-and-out fabrications” in recent media interviews, prompting the judge to advise the former governor “to restrain himself.”
