Blagojevich Impeachment Panel Calling First Witnesses

Click to Read

Blagojevich Impeachment Panel Calling First Witnesses A lawyer for Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich told state lawmakers Thursday that the federal wiretaps at the heart of the pay-to-play allegations against his client were illegally obtained, and therefore should be kept out of any impeachment proceedings. The wiretaps are crucial to the federal charges filed against Blagojevich last week. Prosecutors say they caught the Democratic governor discussing efforts to auction off Barack Obama's US Senate seat and pressure a hospital executive for campaign donations.
