13. New witnesses and information has come in since the arrests.
Now do we want to give Fitzgerald time to look into those, or are some going to demand he does it on an imposed timeline? I live in IL and would just as soon have the intel before the indictment.

<snip> In the motion filed in federal court on Wednesday, United States Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald asked for more time because multiple witnesses have come forward in recent weeks and investigators have to review thousands of intercepted phone calls.

<snip> In seeking the extension, which Blagojevich's defense attorneys are not opposing, prosecutors said they have intercepted "thousands of phone calls" by tapping Blagojevich's home phone between late October and early December.

They also said "multiple witnesses have come forward in recent weeks to discuss their knowledge of criminal activity" connected to the case against Blagojevich and John Harris, who resigned as the governor's chief of staff just days after he was arrested with Blagojevich.

They also noted that federal grand juries are not seated during the holidays and said there were other reasons they need the delay, but did not disclose them publicly. http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2008/12/us-seeks-mor...
