Blago retrial missing evidence connected to Rahmbo?

Ah, Chicago.

Attorneys for Rod Blagojevich have filed a pretrial motion seeking what they claim is missing evidence in the former governor’s corruption trial, including records of a phone call between a Blagojevich aide and Rahm Emanuel…

The motion says details of that December conversation could bolster a defense contention that Emanuel, who has not been accused of any wrongdoing, was willing to help with a political deal in which Blagojevich would have named Illinois’ attorney general to the seat.

But the call between Emanuel and then Blagojevich chief of staff John Harris is not among hundreds of transcripts of secret FBI wiretaps recorded before Blagojevich’s arrest.
