Blago: Feds should reconsider talk of a retrial or someone at the White House could get hoit

Interviewed on Fox News Sunday, embattled ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich said he would call a a gaggle of high-profile Democrats to testify for the defense should federal prosecutors attempt a retrial.

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich said Sunday that he would call a host of high-profile witnesses -- including White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel -- to testify if he is retried on corruption charges.

...Federal prosecutors have vowed to retry Blagojevich after a jury deadlocked on all but one of 24 criminal counts the government brought against the fiery Democrat.

The Hill named Emanuel, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), DSCC Chairman Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) as potential defense witnesses.

Not named, but likely to be among those considered as witnesses are senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett -- one of Obama's favorites for his vacated seat -- as well as various SEIU officials.

Or, as I like to call them, Obama's Puppetmasters.

Could Blago's 'threat' have something to do with this?
