Judge Says No Obama Testimony in Blagojevich Trial

Defense lawyers for former Gov. Rod Blagojevich who hoped to drag President Barack Obama into their client’s corruption trial this summer were rejected by the judge overseeing the case.

U.S. District Judge James Zagel said the defense motion seeking to subpoena the president fell “very short” of demonstrating the need to have him testify or submit to attorney questions regarding charges that Blagojevich sought to sell the U.S. Senate seat left vacant when Obama was elected in 2008.
