Blago on stand day seven: Feds finish cross examination

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that federal prosecutors have wrapped up their cross-examination of Rod Blagojevich.

Prosecutor Reid Schar finished up questioning of Blagojevich with allegations Blagojevich was hoping to trade the Senate seat to Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. in exchange for campaign contributions.

Blagojevich walked off the stand looking sullen and pensive. He headed straight to his wife, Patti, for a few words. Then they slip into a side room with the defense team, while prosecutors stay seated at their table in the courtroom.
Last week prosecutors told Judge James Zagel that Blago will not be their last witness. Meanwhile, it's unclear whether the disgraced former governor's legal team will ask the disgraced Chicago Democrat additional questions.
