Court Refuses to Unseal Blago Wiretap Transcripts


A federal appeals court has refused to unseal wiretaps of former Governor Rod Blagojevich that weren’t played at his corruption trial.

 

Defense lawyers have long argued for the release of the records, claiming the material that wasn’t played will show that Blagojevich was engaged in typical legal political horsetrading.

 

Prosecutors have argued against the release… saying they are trying to protect the privacy of others caught on those recordings.

 

The justices say the records will stay sealed for now… but indicated they could be release later as the court continues to consider Blagojevich’s appeal of his conviction.
