WASHINGTON—President Trump commuted the prison sentence of Rod Blagojevich, a former Illinois governor who once appeared on Mr. Trump’s reality-TV program and who was midway through a 14-year sentence for multiple counts of corruption, a person familiar with the case said Tuesday.
Mr. Blagojevich, 62 years old, was arrested in December 2008 after he was heard on wiretaps allegedly seeking to sell an appointment to the Senate seat Barack Obama vacated upon his election as president.

I think Trump pardoning all these people now because he knows he isn’t getting a second term! Any Vacancies? GOP senatemajldr LindseyGrahamSC What do you have to say for this latest ABUSE OF POWER....are you just gonna continue to look the other way like a bunch of COWARDS....or are you gonna Stand up like MEN and do the right thing?!?!
that’s just UGLY!!!! greta I’m not a fan of his but it did seem excessive. As with the Stone case. Although, I think Blago’s offense was worse, it still is longer than some murderers sentences Draining the swamp Surprised it did not happen sooner! CORRUPTION PARRRRTY! ScottAdamsSays you gotta see this thread and all the TDSers raging about Trump pardoning
Criminals looking after criminals. greta Trump ❤️corruption. TrumpIsCorrupt
Trump Commutes Corruption Sentence of Governor Rod Blagojevich of IllinoisBreaking News: President Trump commuted the 14-year prison sentence of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich of Illinois, who was convicted of trying to essentially sell former President Barack Obama’s vacated Senate seat Of course he is because he’s praying(he doesn’t pray unless he needs to) someone will do the same for him one day! He’s far more crooked than Blagojevich. Sad Of course he did. Of course.
About time! Give Trump credit for the courage to commute a Dem's unjust sentence before Trump's election instead of in the dead of night before leaving office like cowards Clinton and Obama. 8 yrs is enough greta God bless you, Blago and your wife. Now do something for OUR COUNTRY. CLEAN UP CHICAGO! And justice for all. What a joke.
But I thought Trump wanted to get rid of corruption? Lol! LOL, here it comes: eventually Trump will get to pardoning Stone, Flynn, and Manafort Blagojevich has dirt or squealed on somebody. Trump wouldn't commute a sentence for a Dem Governor because he's bored. greta Perhaps his case needs to be reviewed for invalid warrants too. EVERY wire tap warrant for at least past 12 years. Not saying he’s an angel 😇 just that his impeachment and removal appeared overtly contrived at the time. We just saw the Greatest Impeachment Hoax on earth 🌎🇺🇸
Republicanism = corruption and crime. GOP represents evil in our time
Trump expected to commute sentencing of former Illinois Gov. Rod BlagojevichPresident Donald Trump is expected to commute the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich , multiple senior level sources tell ABC News. Among the causes that lead to Blagojevich's original conviction was the charge that he sought to exchange an appointment to former President Barack Obama pretty generous of the old boy DrainingtheSwamp right realDonaldTrump realDonaldTrump Can I get a pardon for Ventura California case 2013010459? thanks
Trump by his commutation of Rod's sentence is projecting again, freeing a convict from a crime with which he himself is involved. So who's next on his list to be forgiven? Perhaps, posthumously, Charles Manson? No, wait, that was a state crime, so how about Stone or Flynn or. . Not a fan of Blagojevich and certainly think what he did was criminal. That said, our justice system and sentencing guidelines are in need of drastic reform. My state's Republican governor has commuted approx 600 sentences in the last few months. Punative sentences r not justice
ModSpecialist_ Praise God for President Trump and is ability to help humanity in helping those jailed for long times given that are not just. Trump loves crooks and war criminals. Rod should have been sharing the same hair stylist with Donald. WTF! He is a swamp creature Past Presidents pardons have also been controversial. How soon we forget.
I would have let him rot in jail. greta Another case of quid pro quo gets to walk. Do I feel sorry for his children NO. He should have felt sorry for his children when he decided to sell Obama’s senate seat like it was his to sell. His obnoxious wife In on it too. But low life trump loves crooks. Fucking ridiculous

Trump expected to grant clemency to Rod Blagojevich and ex-New York police commissioner Bernard KerikBlagojevich is in the middle of serving a 14-year sentence in Colorado federal prison. The Illinois Democrat was found guilty of attempting to trade the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama for money or favors. And Al Capone right? Why is Trump letting all these crooked cheaters off the hook? Let's call this the prelude to Roger Stone and Trump yucking it up at M-a-L this Friday night.
Drain the swamp? , FOH 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 He’ll “postpone” the coming election soon. Why he was a crook. Another reminder that Trump isn't really a Republican. He's a mobster who admires corruption regardless of party affiliation. i wonder if blagojevish was black, would trump have done the same ? yeah. right.
Why Trump? for what purpose? Tell the truth, get punished. Be corrupt, get rewarded. This is insanity. Warm up for Flynn and Stone Who's next, El Chapo?

In before all of the twitter lawyers lose their shit. His conviction for corruption still stands, he's just setting aside the rest of his sentence....even though Rod has a D next to his name. why don't he commute the thousands of innocent victims jailed for crimes they didn't commit
Trump letting grossly corrupt politicians go free? Why am I not surprised? Corruption at its worst. no worries trump will soon reduce sentence or release all his criminal friends in prison The Law and Order president 😂
Trump pushed CIA to target Bin Laden's son over higher priority targetsWhen the CIA gave President Donald Trump a list of major terrorist leaders to kill, he said he'd never heard of them, instead he focused on Hamza bin Laden, Osama bin Laden's son. Ken Dilanian joins Chris Jansing to discuss why the president was more interested in Bin Laden instead of other names such as the leader of al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahri. Still trying to measure up in spite of all the evidence he's not capable Thank god for Trump while GhislaineMaxwell rapes kids, acquires kids for others to rape - and Trump just blind eyes that shit $tsla $aapl $wmt
