And the Judge says we're done for the day, excuses the jury, and says good-bye. M.L. Elrick will have a complete breakdown tonight of Fox 2 News, and his unique view of Kilpatrick and friends on MyFoxDetroit.com.

1:01

Dalgleish says he didn't hear from Kwame about the report to the IRS. Says they filed the documents to the at the end of the year. The suspicious cash box was not checked. Nothing unusual.

Thomas asks about the add-ons. Says people should want to buy a Cadillac. Yes. Laughs. Thomas says to do an add on implies that they don't deserve it. They should be able to get add -ons like special wheels. Yes.

Doeh up next. Judge tells him he's got one minute. Asks who is the Lessee, Thomas objects, this is the DeViller Lease, 2000.

Says Thomas asks about most people purchase, 15%. Doeh says most people... Dalgleish says most people don't pre-pay.

12:50

Doeh puts up the IRS document Dalgleish used to report the cash payment to the IRS. Says he's required to tell the customer he's required to report the cash. Has to report all cash transactions over $10,000. Sent a letter to Kwame telling him the form was sent to the IRS.

Thomas up on cross, asks if he personally dealt with Kwame on second vehicle. Correct.

Asks about first vehicle. Puts up the check from the Civic Fund. Dalgleish says he didn't do the first transaction, asks if it's not uncommon to buy cars with business checks. No.

Did the check get returned. NO. What was the purpose of the vehicle, you don't know. That's correct. You just don't know. That's correct.

Thomas puts up the bill of sale. Asks if it's required to be filed with the state, this is from the 2009 vehicle. Correct.

Thomas says whether it's a lease or sale it has to be filed with the state. Yes.

Thomas says there's no secret about this. No.

Thomas asks about the purchase date of 4-12-2009. Dalgleish says he didn't personally handled the deal. He just wrote the receipt. Says Kwame did' T tell him he why he was buying the car. Did you know he just got out of jail. Yes.

Asks if there's a benefit to pre-paying a lease. Dalgleish says yes... you save money. Says it's not unusual. 15% of the time.

Thomas puts up receipt for $13,000, was it going to be added to over time. Yes.

Puts up bill. Dalgleish says it's the total of the payments. 35,000.

12:37

Doeh asks why Enterprise is listed on the lease. Dalgleish says is the company that leased the car to the customer.

Doeh asks if he got cash from Kwame, on Feb 23 2009. Yes.

A juror just asked a question. Judge Edmunds says he can't ask substantive questions. Doeh puts up the contract. Dalgleish say Kwame Kilpatrick is the Lessee.

Dalgleish says he brought in required funds and his clerical staff was off so he personally wrote the receipt.

Doeh asks did he come in with cash. Dalgleish partially, 9,000 and a cashiers' check for 4000.

Dalgleish says there was at least 7,000 in hundred dollar bills.

Doeh asks if there was another 1600 transaction, 6559 transaction. Yes.

Dalgleish says the dealership then wrote a check to the leasing company. Doeh asks why. Dalgleish says this was the lease per-payment.

Doe asks if the total was $35,000. Yes. Asks if he sees the cashier's check for 16,000 from Kwame. Yes. February12 2009. Yes.

Doeh shows another document. Dalgleish says it the internal receipt for 16,000. Now show a 6,000 check from Kwame. And again an internal receipt.

Doeh shows another check for $4,000.

Doeh says these payments don't show the 9,000 in cash. Correct.

Dalgleish agrees all the checks total 35,000.

Doeh asks if there were extras. Dalgleish says custom tires and wheels, chrome tow hooks, vents.

12:22

Shea comes up and asks if campaign's shut down in off years. NO. Do you know what that 25,000 payment was for. No.

Bullotta comes up asks how long is a city council decision good for. Beeckman says they have a week to change her mind, he knows this because Rayford and Rosendall were talking about Monica Conyers, paying her bribes, and she was the swing vote on the council.

Bullotta asks if he remembers the Mayor's folks talking about wiretaps, says you remember talking about not hearing the Mayor talk unless he called a tapped phone. Shea objects and the Judge agrees with him. Bullotta tries again...

Asks if Beeckman intercepted calls between Bernard and Kwame. Judge Edmunds sustains another objection.

Bullotta asks if a call from Michael Tardiff was intercepted, and Beeckman answers yes.

Beeckman says he left a business card in Tardiff's door and late intercepted a call between Kwame and Bernard.

Bullotta plays the call.

Kwame:"I'm on the way to the airport." Bernard,"Where you going."

Judge Edmunds says she can't hear it. Bullotta says he didn't plan on playing it but it came up on cross. Says he'll play it later.

Thomas jumps up, says it was council, not Kwame that canceled the contract. True.

Thomas points out the approval date again, November 2TH.

Shea jumps up. There were no calls between Kwame and Bernard, or Rosendall or Bernard at that time that had anything to do with Synagro. That's correct.

---

And we're taking 5

12:11

Court is back in session. Beeckman is done. Prosecutor Doeh calls Doug Dalgleish to the stand. He's retired, they joke about him enjoying retirement and looking for a job. Says he worked at Dalgleish Cadillac. Says he was the dealership manager. Says he didn't personally come to meet Kwame in 2000 but was aware of him.

Doeh asks Dalgleish if Kwame leased a DeVille in 2000.

Doeh shows a check for $2000. From Beatty and Kwame and the Kilpatrick Civic Fund.

March 2 2000, for $2,000 is it a down-payment. Dalgleish says it's the down payment and start up fee for a lease.

Asks if he knows what the Civic fund was . Dalgleish says he can't say if he did or didn't at that time.

Doeh asks what he's looking at now. Dalgleish says it 'S the bill of Sale for the DeVille.

Doeh now puts up on the screen the bill of sale. Doeh asks for the second page, asks what was the monthly payment, $727.87.

Doeh asks if in 2009 if Kilpatrick leased an Escalade. Yes.

Doeh shows him the bill of sale. Thomas asks to approach the bench. Side bar.

11:59

Shea comes up and asks if campaign's shut down in off years. NO. Do you know what that 25,000 payment was for. No.

Bullotta comes up asks how long is a city council decision good for. Beeckman says they have a week to change her mind, he knows this because Rayford and Rosendall were talking about Monica Conyers, paying her bribes, and she was the swing vote on the council.

Bullotta asks if he remembers the Mayor's folks talking about wiretaps, says you remember talking about not hearing the Mayor talk unless he called a tapped phone. Shea objects and the Judge agrees with him. Bullotta tries again...

Asks if Beeckman intercepted calls between Bernard and Kwame. Judge Edmunds sustains another objection.

Bullotta asks if a call from Michael Tardiff was intercepted, and Beeckman answers yes.

Beeckman says he left a business card in Tardiff's door and late intercepted a call between Kwame and Bernard.

Bullotta plays the call.

Kwame:"I'm on the way to the airport." Bernard,"Where you going."

Judge Edmunds says she can't hear it. Bullotta says he didn't plan on playing it but it came up on cross. Says he'll play it later.

Thomas jumps up, says it was council, not Kwame that canceled the contract. True.

Thomas points out the approval date again, November 2TH.

Shea jumps up. There were no calls between Kwame and Bernard, or Rosendall or Bernard at that time that had anything to do with Synagro. That's correct.

 

11:49

Thomas up now, asks if the contract was a done deal. Beeckman says the contract was. Asks if there was any objection by council to signing ht contract. Beeckman says he doesn't know, can't say if it's true or not.

Thomas shows him a defense document now. Says this matter was considered by council, showing him the record of the voting. Says it shows a 5 to 4 decision, dated for approval by the Mayor on November of 2007. Did the Mayor sign off on it 8 days early. Beeckman says that's what the document says.

Asks if the mayor's office was not going to delay the contract. Beeckman says unless someone else used the Mayor's stamp.

Thomas asks what evidence do you have that Building and safety delayed the sign offs. Beeckman says the sign offs were not delayed.

Thomas says the only Hold up was Joanne Watson. Correct.

Nothing further. But Thomas puts up the voter record again for a juror. Explains the voting record.

11:43

Thomas runs through all the numerous steps of approval.

Thomas points out the city council approval November 20 2007.

Thomas says this is a done deal on November 28 2007. Beeckman says the contract is a done deal, yes.

Thomas asks how is he gong to blow up a done deal. Beeckman says they could easily have had Amru Meah in the Building Department mess with the permits.

Thomas says the text scandal happened in 2006 and left town and it's ludicrous to think Kwame would come back with a text message on this. Judge Edmunds tells them to stop stepping on each other.

Beeckman says Rosendall listened to Bernard and reasonably thought it was a threat to his contract.

Thomas says it may not even have been feasible. Beeckman says feasible no.

Bullotta up now asks when the text messages ended. Beeckman says yes before 2007, last messages were in 2005.

Bullotta asks if Kwame's phone was tapped. No, and Beeckman says they may not have had the option to collect messages on the phones they did have tapped.

Bullotta says you were asked if Kwame was caught texting he blow up a deal. Beeckman says not this deal.

Says Bobby sent a message to Kwame saying if Gary Torgill's people call he owes money to Bobby. Beeckman adds that Kwame agreed to put Torgill off.

Bullotta asks about "Done Deal." Beeckman says if the permits were issued late, or denied it would be a great expense to Synagro, or the city could even back out of the deal, and that, in fact the city did pull out of the deal after they found out about the Federal investigation.

11:24

Shea moves on to the trucking issue. Asks if they'd have to partner with someone who owned a trucking company. Yes. She asks if they were just talking about it, not writing anything down. Beeckman says he doesn't think they wrote anything down, ever.

Shea asks if they talked about minority participation, and might this not also be to help Synagro reach it's own minority goals. Beeckman says it could be.

Shea is done and Thomas is up.

Wants to talk about killing or blowing up the contract. Thomas asks if the Minergy contract was going to be taken over by Synagro. Yes.

Thomas introduces the Minergy contract, asks if Beeckman is aware of all the steps it takes to get a contract executed. Yes.

Shows him the last page that shows the resolution of corporate authority, asks who is Alvin Thomas. Beeckman says he's the Synagro in house counsel. this is dated July 2007.

Beeckman reads I further certify that … and the summary is that the officers of the company can negotiate and sign the contract.

Thomas asks … is interrupted by a juror question. He shows that document again. The document is sworn on Sept 1 2006 and signed in July 23rd 2007 with City Acknowledgments by Victor Mercado.

Thomas now puts up the first page. It's the document transmittal record of the contract to build the waste plant Synagro had planned.

Second page is the actual title page dated July 2007.

I just feel in my bones that Thomas is going to ask why, if this document was signed by July 17 2007 that Rosendall thought Bernard or Kwame could kill the deal.

11:11

Bullotta asks if he knew why Kwame told Miller to fire Glen Blanton the Cobo Director. Thomas is objecting. Beeckman says it was because Blanton may have been wearing a wire ((he was)) and didn't show up for work.

Bullotta finishes and Bernard's attorney John Shea comes up. Asks Beeckman about government exhibits, the phone calls between Bernard and Akuna. Says in that discussion Akuna is talking about Rayford invoicing Synagro. Stuff for Both Rayford's and Bernard's work that they should be sharing in. Beeckman says you can draw the conclusion that Bernard was supposed to share the money.

Shea asks about the deposits to Bernard's account now in 2007, puts opt the bank account summary. Asks if all these deposits are after the pancake house meeting. Beeckman says they all occurred after December 4.

Shea says you knew that Bernard worked on his son's campaign. True. That in addition to getting the 25,000 check he got reimbursed for expenses. Beeckman says that wouldn't surprise him, sounds familiar but can't think of an example off the top of his head.

Shea says on the 4 in 2007 at the pancake house Rosendall and Bernard talked about a signing bonus in the hundreds of thousands for dollars, that Bernard was expecting something in the range of 50,000. True.

Shea asks if at the pancake house meeting he said he needed money because of creditors. True.

11:01

All rise." Court is back in session. Bullotta is asking Beeckman if he was in court when Rosendall talked about Bernard talking to "the Man" about blowing up the deal. Beeckman says yes, and he intercepted another call between Akuna and Bernard.

Bullotta play the tape. Bernard is telling Okuna he's so ready to kill the deal.

Beeckman says when Akuna talks about re bidding the contract in this call she talking about bringing in Waste Management.

In the call Bernard says "he don't want to talk to me no more. I think I scared him."

Beeckman says he's talking bout JR, Jim Rosendall.

Bernard on tape says "he's full of shit."

Beeckman says the pair are talking now about Victor Mercado. Says they also talked about the trucking deal idea Rosendall offered up to placate Bernard.

Beeckman says in the pancake house call Bernard, Akuna, and Rosendall talk about Daniel Ferguson, married to Ayanna Kilpatrick, says Daniel talked about putting someone else on the trucking deal besides Ferguson. Don't know if they mean Bobby of Daniel.

More tape, Bernard says, " I'm so close to saying fuck it.."

Bullotta asks when Akuna asks if someone else could come in, like Tony, who's she talking about. Beeckman says Tony Soave, and he knows that because he also had a waste hauling company which he later sold to Waste Management.

Bullotta asks about the Black Onyx,LLC invoice. Beeckman says it's the same address as the office Bernard had in Karl Kado's building at the time.

10:46

Kwame stopped in at the snack shop during the break but went right back upstairs. He's sitting all alone, on a bench in the gallery, behind the defendants table. The mood of the defense team and the other defendants was equally subdued. Not the jovial group they usually appear to be when the come downstairs.

10:41

and we're on a break

10:23

Bullotta show the back summary again and asks Beeckman about withdrawals in December.  Says $100, $300, they're looking at the net cash withdrawals, 300, 100, 140, 600,1500,600,400,417,208.94.  Most of these are withdrawals made at the Greektown Casino, and one or two from the Windsor Casino.

A juror asks the summary be put back up.  Total net cash withdrawals for 2007 about $139,000.

And Judge Edmunds calls for a break on behalf of the jury..

10:18

Bullotta calls AGent Beeckman to the stand.  Asks him about CApital waste management.  Beeckman says they paid Bernard a monthly fee that totaled $200,000.

Bullotta plays an intercepted call from the same day Bernard threatened to "blow up" the deal.

Beeckman says the call is between Akuna and Bernard.  Says Bernard is talking about Rosendall and he heard Bernard says all he had to was make a call and say pull the plug on it.

Another juror question.  Judge Edmunds says you'll have a recorder and be able to play the calls, but you will not have transcripts.

Bullotta asks if he can play it again. Bernard says "all I gotta do is say pull the plug on it."

Bullotta asks about the time Bernard told Rosendall he was broke.  Puts up the Maestro bank account summary.  Beeckman says the total in the account is $429,000 at the end of December when he had the meeting with Rosendall.

Beeckman says Capital Waste paid Bernard 5,000 that month and the same the month before, just two weeks before the parking lot meeting.  Beeckman says Bernard also got a 25,000 payment from Kilpatrick for Mayor.  Beeckman says he doesn't know what Bernard did for the campaign, just that he got paid.

Thomas objects, says the question implies that Bernard did nothing.  Judge Edmunds clarifies Beeckman is just saying to his knowledge.

 

10:06

Shea asks Bernard may not have owned a trucking company but he had clients who did.  Rosendall says yes, he was aware of that.

Shea asks if Bernard and he had conversations discussing the political implications of the deal.  Correct.

Rosendall says yes it was a legitimate issue to be discussed.

You don't know about those revenues Bullotta showed you.   No.  You don't know what creditors were knocking on the door.  No.

and Shea is done, so is Rosendall, he's excused.

10:02

Bullotta asks didn't Bernard and Rayford and Akuna expect to make 3.8 million.  Wasn't that more than you'd make.  Yes.

ASks if Bernard ever sent him a bill for his work.  No.

Did the money you paid Bernard come out of your personal account.  Yes.

If the Mayor hadn't told you to work with his Dad would you have.  No.

Shea asks if Bernard remained engaged even after he brought in Jackson.  CAn't says he didn't do nothing.  Rosendall says he doesn't know what he did.

Shea says the fact of the matter is if Rayford wanted to give him 75% it has nothing to do with you.  Right.

If Rayford thought it was to his advantage to split the deal with Bernard it was Rayford's decision. True.

You were asked if it was necessary to take champagne to you consultants in Lansing.  Did you give them Christmas gifts.  NO.

Did you eve string along you consultants in Lansing.  I don't recall.

Akuna Olumba was Bernard's business partner.  Yes.

She had a business consulting practice.  I don't know what she did.

9:57

Bullotta asks what he told Bernard about Rayford.  Rosendall says he (Rayford) would never have been involved if not for you.  Says Bernard brought him in, that's how Rayford got into the deal.

Bullotta show the Invoice from Black Onyx.  Rosendall reads services rendered for minority participation.  rosendall says the work was not done by Black Onyx, some of it was done by Rayford Jackson. 

Bullotta asks if he discussed with Bernard if he would be involved in hauling waste.  Rosendall says Bernard didn't have a trucking company, that it was something Bernard brought up.

Bullotta asks about "consultants" and was Bernard providing work for him.  Asks if other consultants ever threatened to "blow up" a deal?  No.  Did you ever have to pay them with money concealed in gum wrappers.  No.  Did you ever feel the need to avoid a consultant by pretending to be in another city.  No.

Bullotta asks why he told Bernard that.  Rosendall says he did' want to deal with the money they were asking for, he was avoiding Bernard.  Bullotta asks if you needed him as a consultant would you have avoided him.  No.

Why didn't you just says you can't deal with Bernard it would'  look right.  Rosendall says he didn't blow him off because he didn't want him to stop the deal.  Says he didn't want to explain everything to his boss and wanted to see how the deal with Rayford went before he talked to his boss. 

Rosendall says he put a lot of his own money into the deal.  THosuands of dollars.

9:48

Bullotta asks about a pervious defense question about why they met in the parking lot.  Rosendall says he thought Bernard was worried about bugs and wire taps.  Bullotta asks is that why you later suggested meeting in the parking lot.  Rosendall says yes, he did' want to be on tape either, or charged with a crime.

Bullotta puts up the transcript between Rosendall and Racey.   Racey, "would Kwame have something to say about it."  Thomas objects but is over ruled.

Rosendall says she was talking about Rayford's deal with Bernard.  SAys Kwame wasn't involve with the agreement between Rayford and BErnard but was involved with the over all Synagro deal.

9:44
Bullotta puts up the defense exhibit again and says Rayford said he didn't' think Bernard could stop the Mayor from signing the deal.  Rosendall says yes.

ASks Rosendall to read what he told his boss.  Okay... if I did' think they could screw with us, I would blow them off and wouldn't even deal with it."

Bullotta asks if that was a true statement.  Yes.  Rosendall agrees he did think they could hurt him.  (the deal)

Bullotta puts up another transcript.  March 2008 

"I was pissed.. I couldn't have him, you know, not blow it up..."

Bullotta puts up another transcript from January of 2008.  A juror has a question.  March 5th 2008, she wanted the date of the last letter.

Bullotta asks MR. Shea showed you receipts.

9:39
Bullotta on redirect.  Asks if Rosendall and his boss Pam Racey though they needed to get involved in Rayford's deal with Bernard.  Rosendall says he thought he just wanted to keep the deal going forward, would hold up the permits.

Bullotta asks if Bernard actually threatened to do that?  Yes

Asks about Bernard being broke.  Shows him a summary chart of Bernard's deposits into the Maestro account.  Shea asks if Rosendall knew those parking lot meetings in 2007 and a few days before there was a $7,000 deposit from the Wayne Company, and that 5 days before there was a 5,000, deposit and the day after there was  25,000 deposit. 

Bullotta asks if he'd know that would that have changed his feeling sorry for Bernard.  Rosendall says yes it would have.

Bullotta puts up a transcript of a call..."man he's not going to be able to stop that man from signing the deal.  He ain't going to be able to do that."  Asks if Rayford was talking about the Mayor when he said "that man."  Rosendall says yes.

Shea asks for a sidebar.

9:38

Shea says your cooperation mean you have to testify at this trial and failing to testify is a breach of your agreement.  Rosendall says that's true.

Shea asks if that means the government would ask for only 11 months, and it's exclusively in the province of the government.  Rosendall asks him to repeat the question.  Shea does.  Rosendall says yes.

Shea says you were sentenced and got 11 months.  Yes. 

A different judge sentenced you. and you have to cooperate even after sentencing.  Yes.

And there are consequences you don't want to revisit.  That's a fair statement.

Shea says if you don't tell the government the truth that would be a separate crime.  I believe so.

And if you didn't tell the truth there's no incentive for you to correct that now.  And Shea is done.

9:22

Shea asks about Synagro asking if hiring Bernard were illegal.  Rosendall says they knew it was a gray area, wanted to stay away from it,  hired a law firm out of Lansing to get an opinion.

Shea says let's talk about how you got to be here, you were pulled over by FBI agents.  Yes.

You were told you were caught on wire taps maybe doing things illegal.  That's Correct.

They told you the penalty was ten years.  Rosendall says there were a lot of numbers thrown around.

Shea asks you decided to cooperate to help your own situation.  Yes.

Shea says they did"T' make it a secret that the investigation was government wide.  That's fair.

In January of 2009 you started getting the benefits regarding you personal circumstances.  Rosendall says the Benefits?

Shea says you found out you were being charged with something less than what they could have charged you with.  Rosendall says he doesn't remember the exact numbers just knows it was a lot less than he could have faced.

5 years in prison, 3 years supervised release, what you plead to was 5 years Shea asks.  Yes.

9:22
Shea says Bernard is contrasting the County Commission with City Council.  Rosendall says that's correct.

More tape:

Shea asks isn't what he's talking about the relationship between the county executive and the commission when Bernard was a commissioner.  Rosendall says it sounds like that.

Shea says he's saying we know you're doing things that are borderline illegal but we didn't care because we want something over hear.  Rosendall says he not sure what Bernard is saying, it may be that.

Shea now asks about Bernard's agreement with RAyford Jackson.  SAys it simply wasn't your business.  Rosendall says he didn't want any part of it, wasn't really a part of it.

Synagro's position was that Rayford had an obligation and he had to honor it.  Nobody said it was illegal.  Rosendall says Synagro knew Rayford had an AGreement with Bernard and it was on Rayford.  Rosendall says they may have had talks at Synagro about it being illegal.

Shea asks if his boss though Rayford should honor his agreements, that it was a ;matter of morality.  Rosendall says yes.

9:15

John Shea is at the podium and   Rosendall is back in the witness stand.   Shea is asking about the pancake house meeting and the part of the conversation where they talked about how things were in the county.  Shea says it was about carving up deals with the county just like they were carving up the Synagro deal.  Rosendall says he thought Bernard meant it was the same as what they were trying to do with Synagro.  Shea asks if it was about relationships, like relationships with County Commissioners. Rosendall says no.

Shea plays more The noise from the restaurant makes it nearly impossible to hear. I'll have to wait for Shea's question.

Shea asks if Bernard is talking about City Council.  Rosendall says he thinks he said council is a whole different ball game.

Shea says Bernard says most business people are used to lying but not lying like this.  Rosendall looks puzzled.

Shea says when he says don't worry I'll take care of you he's talking about someone else.  Says he's contrasting business people to council  people.  Rosendall says he doesn't know.

Shea plays more tape:

 

 

9:05

"All rise." Court is in session and Judge Nancy Edmunds is starting out with a sidebar before the jury is brought in.
