This is long wild tour -- -- where the trial of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich has made big headlines the jury deadlocked.
On most counts was told by the judge it's okay to the side and just.
View the charges against blog for joining me now Chicago radio host guy Benson guy you're -- -- -- Shia town.
Still gonna walk.
Who knows -- it's anyone's guess right now and it's a hundred degrees.
Here in Chicago today -- and I think both sides on this trial are sweating because.
This jury came back and leaked out yesterday that they.
Needed -- -- more clarification that they were deadlocked on some of the counts.
And then of course we found out later on today that in fact it's 22.
Of the 24 counts and we don't even know what the two counts if they're all.
They have a consensus I was like some guy here's what it sounds like -- -- -- 24 counts of the could have convicted and -- found guilty on.
And it sounded like they came back and say judge you know most of them we can't do we were kind of hung up but we could convict on these two little ones that okay -- -- And the judge said yeah go ahead convict the way.
Sounds like -- -- you know.
-- not a professional not a lawyer but something they really don't have a lot out of right now.
Yeah that's definitely a speculation here in Chicago right now come at a conventional wisdom here Eric has been.
That one of the slam dunk charges is lying to the FBI.
And compared to some of the other stuff he's been indicted on.
That's not that big of a deal so let's just say they only come down with two convictions and either acquit or have a hung jury on the other 22.
Then it's a real tough call for the US attorney's office because you probably remember when.
Rod Blagojevich was -- -- arrested back in 2008 in December.
The press conference that Pat Fitzgerald held I mean he used some very strong rhetoric.
And the charges that he listed were very grave and they were very serious so then.
If they only in fact that convict on a handful they have to make the decision today drop the charges -- could be.
Truly an embarrassment or they go through with a -- to try try hanging out hanging -- don't go anywhere wanna bring in the panel today's.
All star panel Fox News legal analyst least we'll conservative columnist -- -- cop inside scoop called post hopes.
-- and comedian at the end of the table playing third base to you know this guy anybody least let's do this job.
But didn't talk once and it may be -- three years not what it first let's just break this down a little bit even if -- only convicted on two counts and the line to the -- the 1001 count.
Which is what it's called would be the easiest count them I don't see how this jury did not convict on that I mean that's just -- life he didn't.
I didn't write it -- -- ahead.
-- if they don't convict on the wire fraud and he didn't just didn't quite say oh just.
Give up being in the senate not to go back and work on this were so there's a chance that they will still convict on -- wire fraud which they're tougher capital and -- one -- He's only convicted on those two counts that we know of now the judge at sentencing can use all of the other counties -- put on.
You know you guys don't know is that you guys hang in there what's with the Democrats in Chicago.
What's going on in their living.
Let me let's go but what are the Democrats -- yeah.
But -- that -- and I got to a publicist tells how Great Britain.
Half the only governor elected governors found themselves -- right after a couple of Republicans leveling.

Straight down line Democrat -- -- he's still a pig I couldn't imagine people like daily still on the I can't come from that world so I lived it.
It's a political machine.
Yeah I think it's a love hate relationship they don't necessarily.

In basic elements that because you know.
As soon and I mean I am I the only one we've been loving the blog.
