In the last trial, prosecutors said pro-Jackson businessmen were willing to pay some $1 million to Blagojevich's campaign in exchange for the governor naming Jackson to Obama's vacant seat.
"If I'm a conspirator — bring it on," Jackson snarled in a interview last year with Don Wade and Roma.
Shortly after, Jackson suffered a bimbo eruption involving a blonde swimsuit model. Blagojevich suggested the information came from FBI documents, though he did not offer proof.
"… Then all of a sudden somebody leaked, and I'm not so sure that the government is supposed to be leaking information on FBI interviews, but they then embarrassed him and leaked his FBI 302 (report)," Blagojevich said. "I believe it's them. I'm not sure. But it sure looks like it.
"He said, 'Bring it on' and the next day there was a big story in the paper … that humiliated him with his other problems," Blagojevich said.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Chicago declined to comment about the latest Blagojevich rant.

The Feds and Jesse Jackson's Swim Suit Model
From Kass today but I heard Blagojevich yesterday AM on Wade and Roma say it. Sure makes you wonder about Fitz and the way the Feds selectively editorialize about things making Lincoln roll in his grave, but then go silent when asked about very odd coincidences like this.
