Rezko denied new trial, Judge Amy St. Eve denied request, Rezko cooperated in Blagojevich trial, Why Rezko not a witness
“Why did the Illinois Senate Health & Human Services Committee, with Obama as chairman, create and push Bill 1332, “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act,” early in 2003, which reduced the number of members on the Board from 15 to 9, just prior to rigging by Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells
“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich
From the Chicago Tribune March 3, 2011.
“A federal judge has denied a request from a former fundraiser for impeached ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich to throw out his 2008 convictions and grant him a new trial.”
“But Judge Amy St. Eve writes in a Thursday ruling that straightforward kickbacks and bribery underpinned Rezko’s convictions — not the disputed legal notion that he failed to provide honest services.”
“Prosecutors accused Rezko of squeezing kickbacks from people seeking state business. Rezko’s cooperated with prosecutors in Blagojevich’s ongoing corruption case and agreed to delay his sentencing until after the former governor’s retrial.”
Why was Tony Rezko not called as a witness in the first Blagojevich trial?
