Blago: Obama “Began the Whole Conversation” About His Vacant Senate Seat and Sent a “Middleman” to Me the Night He Was Elected President (VIDEO)
Former Illinois Governor Rod “Blago” Blagojevich told Fox News host Jesse Watters that it was Barack Obama who began the whole conversation about his vacant senate seat and he even sent a middleman to Blago on election night.
Blago was prosecuted, convicted and sentenced to 14 years in prison for trying to sell Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat.
President Trump last Tuesday commuted Blago’s sentence after he served more than 7 years in prison.
“President Obama began the whole conversation because he sent someone to me as a middle man — a mediator — not unusual in politics on the night he was elected president to say that he would like to talk about his choice for the senate and to see what I might be willing to ask for,” Blago said. “Political horsetrading, not what those corrupt prosecutors said it was.”
Blago also said he may soon reveal secrets about Barack Obama and how he came up in the Chicago cesspool.

Barack Obama lied when he denied having any knowledge of Blagojevich’s efforts to sell his Senate seat after he won the presidential election in 2008.
“I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening,” President-elect Barack Obama said in a statement in December 2008.
But Obama’s senior advisor David Axelrod contradicted Obama’s statements on Blago and his vacant senate seat.
“I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names, many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them,” Axelrod said in November of 2008 in a media interview.
Axelrod then walked back his statement to cover for Barack Obama.
“I was mistaken when I told an interviewer last month that the President-elect has spoken directly to Governor Blagojevich about the Senate vacancy. They did not then or at any time discuss the subject,” said Axelrod.
Barack Obama came out of this scandal unscathed even though it was his idea to sell his vacant senate seat.
The FBI also covered for Barack Obama and hid the 302 report summarizing their interview with Obama about Blagojevich.
