Another Distraction… Blago's Lawyers Want Obama Aides to Testify

Another distraction. Another attempt to deplete The One’s precious energies.

They must not have been listening to the Obama press release yesterday on the Obama ‘Report’ by the Obama lawyer that cleared the Obama Chief of Staff.
The lawyers for Hot Rod Blogjevish want Rahm Emanuel, Valerie Jarrett and Jesse Jackson Jr. to testify before the House impeachment committee.
This could be great entertainment for the new year, after all.
KDKA and Free Republic reported:

In a dramatic development in the ongoing impeachment proceedings, lawyers for Gov. Rod Blagojevich want two key aides to President-elect Barack Obama and U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. to testify before the House impeachment committee.

Sources tell CBS station WBBM-TV that a letter sent by Blagojevich’s lawyers to committee chairman, State Rep. Barbara Currie, asks that the committee subpoena Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and Jackson.

On Tuesday, a transition official disclosed that Obama, Emanuel and Jarrett, have been interviewed in connection with the federal investigation into Blagojevich. The transition official, speaking on a condition of anonymity, also confirmed that Emanuel had been captured on wiretaps taken as part of the investigation

Blagojevich was charged on Dec. 9 with plotting to use his governor’s authority to appoint Obama’s Senate replacement and make state appointments and contracts in exchange for cash and other favors. He has denied any criminal wrongdoing and has resisted multiple calls for his resignation, including one from Obama.
