Fundraiser seeks immunity in Blagojevich probe

A key figure in Gov. Rod Blagojevich's alleged scheme to sell a U.S. Senate seat has sought immunity from federal authorities in return for his cooperation in their ongoing probe, the Tribune has learned.

Raghuveer P. Nayak, an Oak Brook businessman and political fundraiser, is the unnamed "Individual D" who prosecutors say was being squeezed by the governor for campaign cash in return for appointing U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. to the Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama, sources said.

Investigators appeared at Nayak's Oak Brook home the morning the FBI arrested Blagojevich, the sources said. Nayak was among a number of people connected to the case who were contacted by federal agents that day.

Nayak has not been accused of wrongdoing and declined to comment. It is unclear what information he can provide to authorities, who said they had more work to do after moving quickly to interrupt the governor's alleged scheme.

He appears to be seeking immunity in respect of nothing in particular, it will be interesting to see what it is he thinks might have been illegal.

Doesn't really matter what he thinks it's what the feds think. It's a smart legel tactic to at the least get "Use Immunity". Keeps the feds from using you then abusing you.
It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

I'm interested in who he can possibly implicate.  :evillaugh:

Now that the press has put his name out there I wonder how long it is until he dissappears,either under fed protection or part of a bridge overpass some where.

This is a very interesting development, even if it means we won't know the full import until the case actually comes to trial.
