Rod Blagojevich's defense team subpoenas Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Given the former governor's previous antics regarding this case, it's no surprise he is casting a wide net -- apparently from the president down to dogcatcher.”

The Rod Blagojevich circus has added another ring.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been subpoenaed by the Blagojevich defense team in the ousted Illinois governor's corruption trial, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Lawyers for ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich have subpoenaed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to testify at Blagojevich's federal corruption trial, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

"This action does not mean that Senator Reid will testify at trial," Reid spokesman Jim Manley told the Sun-Times.

Last month, Sen. Dick Durbin revealed that he was also subpoenaed by Blagojevich's defense team.
