The defense wants to subpoena him:
“President Obama has direct knowledge to allegations made in the indictment,” the defense said in its filing. “In addition, President Obama’s public statements contradict other witness statements.”The defense said it still has not received notes from FBI interviews of Obama even though it first sought that material in December.”

It’s not good for Obama. But whether you agree or disagree with his politics, it’s clear that he’s in a difficult position.
His former close buddy, Rezko — “That’s not the Tony Rezko I know” — still swings like some albatross from his neck, and it’s getting quite stinky. It’s hard to transcend the old politics of the past with that dead bird weighing you down.
It’s going to get pretty crowded under that Chicago bus.
