Blagojevich seeks release of Obama's FBI interview

(CNN) - Lawyers for former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich are asking a federal judge to order the government to turn over summaries of a December 2008 FBI interview with then President-elect Barack Obama.

In a motion filed Monday, Blagojevich's lawyer argued that Obama's interview might include information that contradicts witnesses expected to testify at the upcoming retrial for Blagojevich on corruption-related charges.

    Why is Blago beginning to look like the only honest man in politics? YES. Get the tapes released. This man is entitled to a fair trial. I'm sure Holder would agree.

    Isn't odd that he doesn't have a record of his own?

    I keep a conversation log whenever I talk on the phone. Look at the log as the minutes of a meeting. Anyone with any business sense would do be wise to create minutes of phone conversations. You do keep minutes of face to face meetings don't you?

    With Balonoff testifying that he spoke to Obama directly, he should have gotten it in the first trial so he could be properly corssed...The Blagojevich defense team has been continuely road blocked by the prosecution who is more interested in protecting the President than presenting a fair trial...The defense's request to depose Tony Rezko and Stuart Levine was turned down by Judge Zagel on the 15th of February even though the prosecution has stated that they may call Rezko/Levine...There should be a Congressional investigation into corruption in the U.S.Attorney's office, they are more corrupt than the people they prosecute...
