Blago Says Trump Has His Deep and Undying Gratitude

Former Illinois governor, Rod Blagojevich, couldn’t be happier with President Trump for being part of the president’s “Pardon-Palooza” this week.

While speaking at a Colorado airport Tuesday night, Blago said the president has got a big fan in him and called himself a “Trump-o-crat.” He also said he is going to fight against the corrupt criminal justice system, which he believes all too often persecutes and prosecutes people who did nothing wrong.

Blagojevich acknowledged the president didn’t have to commute his sentence and called out his fellow Democrats for being unkind to the president.

“He didn’t have to do this. He’s a Republican president; I was a Democratic governor. My fellow Democrats have not been very kind to him. They’ve, in fact, they’ve been very unkind to him. What he did was, I think, something that deserves a great amount of appreciation on my part personally. He has from me my deepest, most profound and everlasting gratitude.”

The former governor had been more than halfway through serving a 14 year sentence in federal prison before the president’s action earlier this week. President Trump took to Twitter to state that “Blagojevich did not sell the Senate seat” and called it yet another (James) “Comey and gang deal.”

On Tuesday, February 18, President Trump issued pardons to 11 federal offenders – including Blagojevich, which commuted their sentences and expunged their records.

    I think the Former Governor is telling us the truth, no reason to lie now, I am very glad he is free and back with his family, our judicial system has caused lives to be ruined, thru many years, needs a face lift, one that punish yes, but do not get to carried away with the amount of years you give a person, on something not so bad. Stop and think how can I punishment, but help them to return a better person, not a total wrecked person.

    The good news is that as a pardoned felon this scumbag will not be able to vote for Trump. The bad news for Trump is that when he’s indicted and convicted after he leaves office in 2021 for crimes much worse than “Blago’s” there will be no pardons to get his fat ass out of prison.

      That was a very well put together intolerant and hateful statement. You have a wide gamut of candidates from which to pick.

      Richard go stick your ignorant head back in the sand and don’t let it come out again. One day I hope you get to experience the legal system like it’s been in the past that Trump is cleaning up and sit in jail and think about your ignorance, it’s a tool the Democrats use just like stupid people like you doesn’t matter whether there’s truth or not if they say so you did it. F Y I judges legislating from the bench is illegal and the Democrats have done nothing about it because they use it like they did on him. God where do you f****** s*** heads come from.

    Rod is grateful to Trump. He mentioned that three emphatic times in his presser. He has been writing out what he knows about the corruption of government, that he was a part, naming names names, times, and places. In this manner, he can put some action to his gratitude and help clean up the corruption he knew so well.

    Trump is going around the system – again – and pardoning the pond scum. He pardoned someone whose relatives gave him money. He pardoned people who are as immoral and corrupt as he is turning out to be. I am increasingly worried and disgusted by our president. I won’t vote for him again.

    Trump’s act of commuting Blagojevich’s conviction is heroic in demonstrating mercy and forgiveness.

    Trump continues to impress me.
