Blagojevich trial Monday June 7 2010, Blagojevich states Opening statements will unlock the truth
From the Chicago tribune June 7, 2010.
“Blagojevich: Opening statements will ‘unlock the truth'”
“This is getting to be a regular thing, trial watchers. Along with your morning coffee, it appears you can also get a morning jolt of Rod Blagojevich publicly proclaiming his innocence in a variety of ways and with a variety of well worn metaphors.
The former governor started the morning on the Don and Roma talk show on WLS-AM, the same conservative talker that started giving him a platform as a weekend host shortly after his impeachment last year.
Sounding much like he did when he was still governor and doing regular battle with House Speaker Michael Madigan, Blagojevich didn’t mince words in lobbing accusations of prosecution “lies” in constructing the charges against him.
He also sent out a tweet to “followers” on Twitter. “Looking forward to opening statements because that will unlock the truth… stay tuned,” he wrote.”
