Blagojevich Reverses Course to Give Closing Argument
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is expected to deliver a closing argument at his Senate impeachment trial Thursday.
Thursday, January 29, 2009
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich plans to reverse course Thursday morning and deliver a closing statement at his impeachment trial, even after boycotting and ridiculing the proceedings earlier this week.
Lawmakers do not know what to expect. Blagojevich, who was on a media blitz in New York City while the trial in the Illinois Senate carried on, has asserted his innocence and rejected numerous calls for him to resign.
Blagojevich will not testify, which would have involved taking an oath and answering questions from the prosecutor and senators. Instead, he will deliver a closing statement.
"Like so many others, I'm going to be on pins and needles just waiting to see what he's going to be delivering us. It could be anything," said state Sen. Susan Garrett, D-Lake Forest.
