American Thinker: Chicago Sun Times Does Hit-and-Run on Obama-Rezko Payoff Lead

H/T loyal reader anon for pointing me to this story in American Thinker on the Frawley saga.  Frawley’s sentencing by the way has been postponed… again.

Quoting from a December 1, 2010 deposition wherein Weaver's attorney, Daniel F. Konicek, questioned Frawley in the presence of his, Frawley's, attorney, Charles R. Franklin, the Sun-Times reported:

Later in the deposition, Weaver's lawyer, Daniel F. Konicek, asks Frawley about what specific information Weaver is supposed to have told Frawley to withhold from federal authorities.

'I'm assuming the information is about the payments made by Rezko to Obama, so we know we're talking about the right conversation, right?' Konicek asks Frawley.

Frawley doesn't answer. So Konicek presses him: 'Am I correct it was about Obama being paid by Rezko?'

Frawley replies: 'I'm not answering that question, based upon my attorney's instructions.'

Nobody directly involved with the deposition -- including Frawley and his lawyers, Weaver and his lawyers, and the FBI and U.S. attorney's office -- would comment.

Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for Obama's presidential campaign, called Konicek's suggestion that Rezko might have made any cash payments to Obama 'utter nonsense.'  [Emphasis added.]
