According to an article from the AP, the defense lawyers for former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich have asked a for a subpoena Thursday of President Barack Obama for Blagojevich's corruption case.
The Chicago Tribune reports that the defense lawyers say that there is some pertinent information to the case that only the president and the former governor know. This information could possibly prove the governor innocent.
The filing of the subpoena request had much "classified" information redacted, but a "computer glitch" has allowed the full redaction to be posted on the Internet.
Security officials for the president have requested that a pre-recorded video of Obama's testimony be used in the case, rather than having the president present in the courtroom.
