The outsted governor’s attorneys have also filed a motion to subpoena the President himself.One of the interesting things to come out of those conversations was a discussion between Blagojevich and SEIU official Tom Balanoff. Blago can be heard telling Balanoff that Emanuel was pushing for Jarrett hard because he wanted her out of the White House. CLICK HERE for the audio.
Obama has stated that he has not been involved in talks regarding his Senate seat, but according to the 10-page motion filed by lawyers for Blagojevich, another witness in the case has evidence to the contrary.
