WASHINGTON — Well Prez, you’re off the hook for now. Looks like you won’t be going to the Blagojevich circus.

A federal judge in Chicago on Friday refused to issue a subpoena for President Obama to testify in the trial of ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, the Associated Press reported.

Blagojevich, who faces a host of public corruption charges, including one that he tried to sell the president’s vacated Senate seat, wanted Obama to testify in his upcoming trial on June 3.

U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel said Blago’s request fell “very short of authorizing a subpoena for the president”, AP reported. The judge indicated he could change his mind during trial if he determines the President has something relevant to tell jurors.
