Rod Blagojevich Trial

Rod Blagojevich Trial, Rod Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois, is seeking a third trial, saying U.S. District Judge James Zagel was leaning against him openly.

The former Democratic governor was convicted June 27 of wire fraud, bribery, extortion and conspiracy for trying to attempt to sell the seat of President-elect Barack Obama in the Senate in 2008. It was his second try after an inconclusive result last year.

Blagojevich lawyers filed a motion on Monday, the Chicago Tribune reported.

“Virtually all the mistakes in this essay came from the fact that Blagojevich private court of the presumption of innocence and showed a bias against the defense,” the movement. “The tribunal formed a closed mind to the evidence and reached conclusions of fact. … The court rubber-stamped government requests.”

The defense says the jury selection Zagel tilted in favor of the prosecution and led to believe that Blagojevich could be explained if he testified – and then prevented from doing so, according to website.

The lawyers are also opposed to the management of recorded phone calls. When Blagojevich was heard to ask to become Secretary of Health and Human Services, which should have been allowed to quote your medical record, as governor, states the motion, the Chicago Sun-Times
