Report Surfaces That Rod Blagojevich Will Not Testify at His Trial

Rod Blagojevich's lawyers told U.S. District Judge James Zagel this afternoon they plan to rest their case without having the ousted former governor testify, as he has repeatedly said he would do, sources told the Chicago Sun-Times.

In fact, they don't plan to call a single witness, the sources said.

In a private conference with the attorneys in the case, Zagel told Blagojeviches' lawyers to think about their decision overnight, and he adjourned court for the day without any explanation, saying the trial would resume at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
