Rep. Jackson, Jr. subpoenaed in Blago trial

May 14, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Jackson released a statement Friday saying he would testify truthfully if he is called to do so.

His statement goes on to say that he did nothing wrong and never authorized or engaged in any scheme related to the vacant U.S. Senate seat once held by President Obama.

Jackson's supporters allegedly offered to raise one and a half a million dollars for Blagojevich if the then-governor named the congressman to President Obama's former U.S. Senate seat.

Jackson insists he was never part of any scheme for the seat, and did nothing wrong.
