Blago will get Emanuel tapes

Hugh Hewitt, talk show host and law school professor, points out that Rod Balgojevich will get access to the entire wiretap records of Patrick Fitzgerald as soon as he is indicted. And, unless Rahm Emanuel is also indicted, or unless Balgo elects to share those tapes, Rahmbo will have no such access to what was said.

Considering the way Scooter Libby's memory lapse about what was said in his conversations re: Valerie Plame, and Fitzgerald's eagerness and ability to obtain a conviction for perjury based on a false recollection, this has got to give pause to Emanuel.

No wonder he is unwilling to speak publicly about anything related to the case.

2009 promises to be an interesting year for designated White House Chief of Staff.
