CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has testified for less than five minutes and answered just a handful of questions at the corruption trial of ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
The former White House chief of staff told jurors with a one-word `no' that he never was asked directly by Blagojevich to help the then-governor get a top job in return for appointing someone to President Barack Obama's old Senate seat.
Prosecutors did not ask any questions in cross-examination.
Emanuel's not accused of any wrongdoing.
Blagojevich has denied any wrongdoing.
