The advisor for the TV show, ‘The Good Wife’ is defending the accuracy of a recent episode based on the Rod Blagojevich trial.
In the episode that aired March 16, investigators tried to get the fictional governor’s former attorney to testify against him in a voter fraud investigation.
The agent referenced the Blagojevich case in an effort secure his cooperation.
“I can take my time, Mr. Gardner,” Agent Nelson Dubek said. “I was on the Blagojevich case. We always knew that sooner or later the lawyers would talk. They want to talk. They need to talk. They know that attorney-client privilege only gets them so far.”
Irv Miller is a Chicago attorney and the technical advisor for the show.
Miller said he acknowledges that none of Blagojevich’s lawyers have actually been accused of breaking attorney-client privilege.
He argued the script is accurate because they did meet with federal investigators.
