Clooney: Why Am I a Witness in that Prostitution Trial?

3/29/2011 6:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Clooney tells TMZ ... he's perplexed that he's been subpoenaed to testify at the prostitution trial of the Prime Minister of Italy.

Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is accused of paying to have sex with a 17-year-old Moroccan girl and then trying to cover it up.

Berlusconi's lawyers say they want Clooney as a witness because the girl claims she had seen George and his girlfriend at one of Berlusconi's parties.  It's unclear how that information would be relevant in the trial.

Clooney says, "It seems odd since I've only met Berlusconi once and that was in an attempt to get aid into Darfur."

The trial is set to begin on April 6 in Milan.

TMZ published here: "Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is accused of paying to have sex with a 170year-old Moroccan girl and then trying to cover it up."

I can only assume calling Clooney to refute what the prostitute said would prove that she's a liar.

Why didn't the Prime Minister call Bill Clinton and ask how to cover it up, get caught lieing and still get away with it. Silvio this is how you do it....Bill.

Um, it's pretty obvious, George. He's hoping the jury will be so dazzled by him calling in a big star they'll find him not guilty.

Maybe the prime minister wants George Clooney to vouch for him as a "character" witness. Perhaps, the only person who could give him a positive reference, is someone who has only met him once, for a brief handful of minutes. Just a thought . . .
