Emanuel Calls to Blagojevich Missing from Evidence

Attorneys for former governor Rod Blagojevich have asked a federal judge to order prosecutors to produce two phone calls his lawyers say are mysteriously missing from evidence.

In a motion filed overnight, Blagojevich’s attorneys say the calls would support the former governor’s contention that he is innocent of charges alleging he attempted to sell Barack Obama’s U.S. Senate seat after the November 2008 election.

While much of the motion is blacked out to comply with orders that the conversations remain under seal, it appears at least one of the alleged conversations was between then Chief of Staff John Harris and then congressman Rahm Emanuel, who had just taken the post as president-elect Obama’s chief of staff.

Wow imagine that! What a coincidence that evidence that might incriminate the man who is seeking to be the next mayor of Chicago has come up missing. The lessons of Byzantium have not gone unlearned. Is there no limit to the depths that these democrats will go to stay in power?
