Blagojevich Subpoenas Senate Majority Leader Reid

Thursday, 13 May 2010 06:38 PM


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office says he has been subpoenaed to testify at ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's upcoming corruption trial.

Spokesman Jim Manley said Thursday that Reid's attorney received the subpoena but that it doesn't mean the Nevada Democrat will testify.

The trial is scheduled to begin June 3. Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to charges of trying to sell or trade President Barack Obama's old Senate seat and plotting to illegally pressure potential campaign contributors.

The former governor has said he wanted to subpoena Reid because the two had discussed Blagojevich's plans for appointing someone to the seat. U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin also has been subpoenaed.

Blagojevich wanted to subpoena Obama but the trial judge won't allow it.
