Why Obama May Be Terrified by Trump Commuting Blagojevich’s Sentence

Ever since President Trump commuted the sentence of disgraced former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich, I’ve been asking myself why he would do such a thing. I have a theory about what might have contributed to the decision, and if I’m right, Barack Obama should be concerned.

When Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008, it was then-Governor Blagojevich’s responsibility to appoint someone to fill the seat. But, Blagojevich didn’t just want to give it away, he wanted something for it. “A Senate seat is a f—ing valuable thing. You don’t just give it away for nothing,” Blagojevich said at the time.

In 2011, Blagojevich was sentenced to 11 years in prison on corruption charges. Of course, he wanted a pardon from Obama, but never got one. That had to be tough for the disgraced governor, considering Obama granted clemency to terrorists and traitors, but couldn’t (or wouldn’t) give one to a former political ally.

This naturally should have people asking: Why?

In my opinion, it all comes back to Blagojevich’s attempt to sell Obama’s former Senate seat. Soon after Obama’s victory, negotiations began for Blagojevich to appoint an Obama-approved candidate to fill his seat. Obama even provided a list of suitable candidates. At the top of the list was Valerie Jarrett. But, as previously mentioned, Blagojevich didn’t just want to give away the seat to someone. He wanted something in return: a position in Obama’s cabinet. Unfortunately for him, at the time, he was politically unpopular and the target of a federal corruption probe, and being wiretapped by the FBI. The chances of him getting picked for a cabinet position were slim. Jarrett also eventually decided to follow Obama to the White House as an advisor.

When the Senate-seat-for-sale scandal broke, Obama denied having any contact with the governor about his Senate seat, and his transition team conducted an internal investigation, which obviously cleared him of violating any laws–because what other conclusion would the Obama transition team come to? However, the criminal complaint and sworn testimony during Blagojevich’s trial contradicted Obama’s statements, as did media reports at the time. Obama advisor David Axelrod also accidentally revealed that Obama spoke directly with Blagojevich about the Senate seat–though he later claimed he misspoke.

Blagojevich even wanted Obama subpoenaed to testify in his trial. One government witness in the trial testified that Obama sent intermediaries to negotiate on his behalf about who should be named to fill his former seat–directly contradicting Obama White House claims to the contrary.

Now that Blagojevich is a free man, slighted by Obama but ingratiated by Trump, it could mean that he’ll be willing to talk more freely about Obama’s illegal actions in the Senate-seat-for-sale scandal. I’d love to see that happen. That scandal was one of many that Obama was never held accountable for.

  1. Barack Obama is a totally corrupt, anti-American Trump hater. He SHOULD be in jail- with some of his homies like John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper et al.

    1. There are many reason Obama should be in prison, starting with his country of birth, adoption by an Indonesian citizen and his shadow government dogging Trump, along with man more criminal acts with Hillary Clinton and his administration puppets.

    2. In JAIL simply because hes a LIAR more than Schiff ( you can keep your doctor, etc etc etc) a FRAUD by sealing ALL his ReCORDS, and a terrible politician by bowing down to other countries and smearing the country who elected him TWICE to be its leader. For his Hatred towards USA and its citizenry, her values, principles and our CONSTITUTION! A COWARD on top of all with his red line in the sand stunt. His failed ECONOMIC policies. A total DISASTER! Who is this snake trying to kid!?

      1. Woo, you didn’t gave me to much room to add to DamBama crime but the most unspecable one pushing ObamaCare to slave not just America but the world under New World Order and Iran control… and look how Nazi Senders doing the same but twisting Obama version but for the same goal and mission.

    3. The way things are going , the fire is being lite , and a large frying pan is waiting to put them all in it , and their own goose may be cooked as they are the goose , and let them all fell the heat ,that’s been waiting for those types of people for to many decades.

  2. Yes, Obama committed many illegal moves, he should be in prison for the rest. Of his life ! Also life changing regulations that affected our basic freedoms in favor of his own !

  3. Obama is a liar and has done so much damage to our country. He needs to be arrested, tried and sentenced. No more talk just get it done. And Clintons.

    1. All of you trump lovers are idiots! The only bad President is your dumb Trump! Your President lies all the time! He has lied from day one! He put a blanket over all the evidence from all the departments and blocked all witnesses from testifying excepted for the few that went against him! And the trial in the senate was a joke, for it was’t a trial at all! They were’t there for us, they were there only for trump! And for your information, guess who was running that trial, your President!

      1. Boy, hope you dont vote, you must have threads on your neck, so your head can screw on! Obummer is a Kenyan, and if and when that is really invested, he too will be exposed. What are you going to do in November when President Trump is reelected?

      2. Boy. are you blind. You are a parrot for the Democratic party. Everything you credit to Trump is exactly what the Democrats have and are doing. I will bet you never read the transcript of the phone calls. Hillary and the Obama’s and CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and the left news stations and newspapers are liars that have filled your head with all the garbage the Democrats wanted you to hear. I feel sorry for you when they are all called to task. And they will be eventually. Try thinking for yourself for a change.

      3. Jd, Fact:Obama was a Chicago politician. Fact: Chicago has again gotten the distinction of being THE most corrupt city in the nation with Illinois being the most corrupt state. (I think we have that award? for the last 30 years, at least) Fact: Obama was not good for the country and lied and cheated, just like all the other Chicago politicians. I don’t care for Trump personally, but I do have to admit he is doing his best to fulfill his campaign promises, This is vastly different than most other politicians, from Chicago or otherwise.

        1. Woo, you didn’t gave me to much room to add to DamBama crime but the most unspecable one pushing ObamaCare to slave not just America but the world under New World Order and Iran control… and look how Nazi Senders doing the same but twisting Obama version but for the same goal and mission.

      4. JD, you have an extreme case of TDS. You need to see a mental health professional as soon as possible to get over your Trump derangement syndrome. Hope you find a good one.

      5. Jd, calls us deplorable ,but as evidence goes we cannot see ALL the crimes committed by Obama and staff because they were sealed . When this and the Dunham investigation is completed maybe then you wont harbor so much hatered.

      6. The biggest idiot of all is a foreign troll like you! People like you with a country with no history and no moral courage to fight injustice should just keep quit and keep your head down. Obama made it popular for people like you to believe your ideas matter. I’m here to tell you Americas was the greatest country in the world until Obama lied his way into the white house. Now that we have a true American in the white house we have become that great nation again. You can have Obama Make him your president and allow him to run your country into the ground, All of us real Americans will gladly take President Trump and we will continue to prosper as the true leaders of the world!

      7. Your brains seem to be fried, Jd. The biggest liar was Obama. There has to be something wrong when someone seals their records. What is Obama AND the Democrats hiding about this Muslim/Communist? I laugh every time you idiots demand Trump’s taxes when you ALLOWED Obama to SEAL ALL HIS RECORDS. The IRS has Trump’s taxes and, if there was anything wrong, they would be after him. But you DEMOCRATS are willing for Obama to seal all records of his life. Now, that seems to point to something that Obama is anxious to hide from THE AMERICAN CITIZENS. Only a moron would automatically accept a person who hides his records, talks against the Country he is suppose to be leading, talks against Whites when he is half White, tells Russia that he would be more flexible after the election, bows down to Muslim countries, hates our Police Officers, hates our Military, and hates our Constitution. Now, tell me why Obama hides his records?

        1. You are exactly right about what you just said 110 percent.obama is a Muslim at heart and he wants America and Israel destroyed.he hates this country I could see it all over his face when he gave a speech.he was not born in America and what he did to our law enforcement he should be hung.by the neck.his policy have caused the deaths of several cops.so.sad.TRUMP 2020

      8. The Constitution of the United States of America says that it was a trial. The verdict was ruled legal, valid, and proper, by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Commiebastards are going to be crying again, in November (256 days). Hope to see you among them. Meanwhile, SUCKS TO BE YOU !

      9. President Carter was a bad president because he was so ineffective. President obama was a disaster of a president causing great harm to our country. Luckily, Predident Trump has been able to right most of the wrongs foisted on our great country by previous administration. All American citizens have been given an opportunity to better themselves. Up to them to use that opportunity to their advantage. Current crop of democratic president pretenders would only reverse all gains made by our great country in last 3 years

      10. With an open mind, look at the media that we watch all the time and examine their money trail ! 90% of all major media is owned by 6 corporations with a interest in being in control to keep making themselves rich! Examine who owns the majority of shares? I believe 15 people, who only have their pocketbooks in mind! They push hatred to keep us deceived! I try to watch both sides, and pray we as a country can see past the greed and hatred! Google what I’m saying if google doesn’t catch on and block this search!
        Many are seeing the lies that are manipulations, for self gain by the richest.
        If anger persists they win !

        1. JUST SO YOU KNOW GEORGE SOROS OWNS MOST OF THE MEDIA, WHO IS CHELSA CLINTONS HUSBAND’S UNCLE!!! WHO DO YOU THINK SUPPORTED LUCIFER HILLARY IN THE 2016 ELECTION. IT WAS SOROS AND WHEN OBAMA WAS IN OFFICE AND LUCIFER HILLARY WAS SECRETARY OF STATE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO BACK OBAMA.HILLARY WAS UPSET WITH THE RESULTS OF THE 2008 ELECTION AND SOROS HAD THE MONEY TO PAY OBAMA TO CHOOSE HILLARY TO BE SECRETARY OF STATE. THE WHOLE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BEEN EVIL, CORRUPT, IGNORANT, ARROGANT, BILLIONAIRES, WHO WANT TO TAKE OVER AMERICA AND AMERICANS BECAUSE THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THIS COUNTRY. THAT IS WHY THE “BIG” NETWORKS RIP TRUMP FOR HEAD TO TOE! THERE IS SO MUCH CRIME IN THE DEMS PARTY THEY WOULD HAVE TO BUILD ANOTHER JAIL JUST TO PUT ALL OF THEM IN IT!

      11. Jd, read the book authored about himself, believing the same way as his father, admitting they both HATE America. And nobody seemed concerned about that, still opened the doors to him to destroy the country he and his father admitted hating!! WOW!!

    1. his elaction was RIGGED by the traitor GEORGE SOROS and his dirty money
      why would we sent the ballots out to another country to be counted
      and crokked george soros owns the machines

      1. Yeah, and now we have this MINI-MIKE who is a Billionaire and a personal friend of Obama Bin Lying and if MINI-MIKE is his friend then they are both linked to SOROS. So when election’s are here WE THE PEOPLE must all get out the vote for our great President Trump, or these people will again be buying the Presidentcey for MINI MIKE, SOROS with his Billions, Mini-Mike and his billions and Obama Bin Lying and his stashed away Billions he stole from WE THE PEOPLE. Hell, Mini- Mike is already trying to buy the Nomination away from Bernie…

          1. BUT, RUMOR IS, HE IS BUYING THE ELECTION AND IF HE BECOMES PRESIDENT, HE IS GOING TO HAND IT TO LUCIFER HILLARY, WHICH IS JUST AS BAD AS SOCIALISM THAT BERNIE WANTS. I JUST HOPE AND PRAY THE ALL THE REPULICANS AND SOME DEMOCRATS REALIZE THAT THEY NEED TO GET TO THE POLLS AND VOTE FOR TRUMP!! GOD HELP US!

      1. Folks

        The senior Obamas will be set free in He’ll. Before too long.
        God will just take them in do time.
        I hope he also stops them from speaking,writing books a steeling money from the dumb idiots who support them

        1. Oh yeah, he’ll pay…..for eternity in hell for sure…… But I am like all the other Americans……I would love to see him suffer and get stoned and then hung to make sure for real….of course a few shots of the rifle will be good too…. He almost destroyed our country, and any punishment he gets is not enough. We got the best there is now, GO TRUMP 2020

        2. Alicia and George, I doubt it. Here’s the problem. Even if Obama had been an honest man at the outset (which he was not) it is virtually impossible for anyone (save Trump) to ascend to a federal office in today’s America with their integrity in tact. Every President, Senator or Congressman elected over the past fifty years (again except for Trump) has been, or eventually has become “owned” by special interests of one sort or another. In Obama’s case, those who own him are largely anti American and anti democratic crooks of one bent or another who used him to line their pockets and champion their largely one dimensional causes. He was elected because he is Black and easily led. He exploited his blackness at every opportunity and leveraged that blackness to do far more harm to America than good. He brazenly charmed the national media to help him camouflage the real Barack Obama and perpetuate his phony image. He may eventually pay for his most serious transgressions but never for his greatest sins, all related to his abject failure to better the lives of honest, hard working Black Americans. Because of him, and despite the presence of far better people in today’s Black community, it will likely be a very long time before America elects another black man.

  4. I have said since day one that Obama was a CROOK, and should be in prison. He tried to ruin the USA., and still does. He stole so much from the Taxpayers and is still stealing from use. I don’t understand how the Democrat people can be so naive or Stupid. Just to prove the Democrats are dumber than a box of rocks. Vote Trump 2020 and Republican forever.

  5. I think it’s time that OBAMA and HIS “henchmen” spend time in FEDERAL PRISON as per the U.S. Constitution, like the REST of the TREASONISTIC TRAITORS. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  6. The problem is no Democrates go to jail. Not one
    People look at the talk as balony until you put them in jail.
    Trump needs these crooks in jail and can start with Comie
    If Stone gets 4 years for lying, why not Comie?

  7. No comments here on why President Trump pardoned Blo. I think it could be a great move to put Illinois in play for 2020! With the dems not having a real contender, and Blo owing The President something and still having some contacts in Illinois political circles his “Trumpocrat” position could be a real game changer. And tht could do wonders for the down ticket spots as well. It would be great to see Durbin gone and some of the house seats, like Bustos changed too. Well I am entitled to dream but it would sure be nice!

    1. We all know Obama is evil not just corrupt but evil! We know he conspired w/Domestic terrorist Bill Ayres . In 2008, Hillary WON PRIMARY, DNC gave it to Obama( for a reason)! Believe Blagojevich had to be silenced to protect Obama. Wish he would move out of Chicago & spill his guts! A lot to tell but dangerous going against this life destroyer!

  8. 3 admitted, or “Out”, homosexual partners of Barack(Bath House Barry) Obama, Larry Bland, Nate Spencer and Donald Young, all members at Trinity United Church, Chicago (Rev. Wright)were dead when Obama decided to run for political office in Illinois. His/her team didn’t want that perversion linked to Obama. 2 were murdered execution style. Thanks Obama.

  9. Obama needed to get to Senate with Blago’s help and because Blagojevich knew way to much that is why they set him up for so many years. I do hope he tell all he know about Obama to our President. For everything Obama has done and he is not finished with all of us. That Parasite needs to be in GITMO for all he has done to this country!

  10. Nothing will ever happen to Obama the first black president no one wants to be called a racist for trying to investigate him and everyone knows if it did happen that person would be called racist by every democrat most media TV and papers and internet that guy his family friends would ruined from going after them 24/7

  11. Fraudulent birth certificate. Number did not coincide with other births at same time. Wrong hospital name was used. Registered as a foreign student at Occidental College, California. Let’s subpoena those records. Brother has BHO’s real Kenyan birth certificate. It only takes months for a certified copy of birth certificate if you need a Photoshop expert. He quite obviously did not have an expert who, if paid enough, would have done a good background check on the proper hospital name at the time of his birth.
    Doubt that Gov of Hawaii was present at his birth — why would he be?? Obama hates America, terrorists are his friends apparently. Put him where he belongs, in jail for his life.

  12. Justice finally being done to the Deep State, Resistance, Obammy adminsistration, the Obammy DOJ and all of Obammy’s crooked little demoncrat/socialist/ commie ilk can not come soon enough. The US should not be living under a corrupt third world government like it was under Obammy. The American people deserve justice for what the last administration tried to do to this country and it’s true Patriotic American loving citizens. The fact that the repercussions of Obammy and his administration and all his minions is still impeding our country today is totally unacceptable. If the Demoncrats only worked 50% with the President think of the even bigger strides our country could make. Instead President Trump has to almost single handily “roll the boulder up the mountain by himself”, to get things done to make our country even better, safer, and united. And to think Obammy is trying to take credit for the current economy!!! Seriously!!! In his dreams! What a POS this faux illegal, lying, phoney, evil human being Obammy is!

  13. Obummer cleaned out Club Gitmo in Cuba and set the most evil terrorists free. Time to put him all of his cronies and the whole Clinton team there for the rest of their lives!!!! They need to be cut off from the rest of the world no cell phones, internet, visitors, just spend the rest of your lives in the pleasure of each others company!!!!

    1. He would be a citizen no matter what because of his mother. The big FRAUD is that he went to college as a foreign student so he could get free tuition.

      1. Right but, he gave up his US citizenship when attending school to be an Islamic Muslim in Indonesia should void it. Or doesn’t that count?

  14. The only thing Obama was good at was conning people! He conned the DNC into thinking that he would be “agreeable” when he planned all along to do his own thing. He has conned a great many Americans into thinking he actually cared about America, when he only cared about himself. I would love to see him answer for the things he has done.

  15. All the crying is for nothing . The house won’t go after Obama yall know ya can’t depend on the FBI , or the DOJ or any other law office of law . The democrats has his back and yall know what that means

  16. If Blagojevich is found floating in the river, we’ll know who put him there. If Blagojevich is not found floating in the river, he’ll surely have some juicy tales to tell the media about Bathhouse Barry. Dead men don’t tell tales, but scorned ex allies do

  17. Obama, even if he had been born in Hawai’i, was never qualified to be President of the United States. Why? Because of his father.

    Per Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution lays forth 3 qualifications for the Office of President. They are: 1. Be a Natural Born citizen; 2. Be at least 35 years of age, and; 3. Have been a resident the United States for at least 14 years.

    What does it mean to be “Natural Born?” Contrary to popular belief, “Natural Born” does not mean the same as “Native Born.” A Natural Born citizen is a person whose parents are both citizens of that country. In the case of Obama, his mother was a U.S. citizen but, his father was a citizen of the British Commonwealth. Specifically, the Colony of Kenya. That fact, is more than enough to have disqualified Barack Obama from ever being eligible to be elected President. The DNC instructed the many Secretaries of State to place Obama’s name on the ballot while covering up the fact that he was not eligible to run. The media willingly went along with it. The general public was mostly unaware or they were misinformed as to what “Natural Born” actually meant.

    The result was an illegitimate occupant in the White House for not just 4 years, but 8 years, as the fraud was perpetuated in 2012 for another 4 year term.

  18. Just incredible that we would pardon those who stole, bribed and tried to profit while supposedly representing the will of the people. Which people I ask. Those pardoned have so much in common with Trump it should not surprise anyone. Trump is responsible for 16,000 + and counting lies or not/partial fact, your kinda of a man. Lets see, 6 cohorts and counting serving time. Trumps cry to the world, “He knows more than the Generals and they are babies.” I wonder if the commander in chief could be court martial-ed for aberrant behavior? I, as a drafted Veteran serving overseas during a major war would certainly be in favor of such action. I would even suggest no witnesses, no admission of evidence or AG interference’s, stating he would be convicted prior to the trial. Sound familiar, similar to the impeachment trial but just the other shoe!!! ????? A vote for Trump is a vote for Satan!!!!
