    Obama Report Raises Questions: How Many Calls Did Emanuel Make to Blagojevich?

    In this Dec. 22, 2003, photo Rep. Rahm Emanuel answers a question as Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich listens during a news conference in Chicago (AP Photo)(CNSNews.com) – Last week’s report from the Obama transition team raised more questions than it answered about President-elect Obama's staff’s contacts with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

    Former federal prosecutor Pat Trueman, however, said Craig’s staff investigation doesn’t really answer anything -- including whether Obama himself had talked with Blagojevich.

    The report has all the markings of a “cover yourself” investigation, he said.

    “The internal report by the Obama staff is no more valuable from a prosecutor’s point of view than an internal report by the governor himself,” Trueman told CNSNews.com.

    “You cannot rely on the statements because they are not sworn statements, they are not in a grand jury setting, where you would have sworn statements, and so they are not really very valuable.”

    A couple of things seem to be certain.

    There was contact and Emmanuel is lying.
