President Donald Trump commuted former Illinois Governor Rod “Blago” Blagojevich’s sentence, according to the New York Times.
President Trump previously floated the idea of commuting Blago’s sentence, claiming the charges against him were “unfair.”
They were. And today Trump commuted the former Democrat governor’s sentence.
In his first interview at the Denver Airport Blagojevich thanked President Trump and noted how Democrats “don’t treat him very good.”
Former Governor Rod Blagojevich: The appropriate thing to say is I speak for Patty, for my daughters Amy and Annie and me when I express our most profound and everlasting gratitude to President Trump for doing what he did. He didn’t have to do it. This is a Republican president. I was a Democratic governor. And my fellow Democrats don’t treat him very good. So all I can say is I think this is the ending of the first act of a two act play. And tomorrow begins the second act and I think there’s a lot that has to be done in the second act.
Blagojevich then said he wants a banana split.
Patti Blagojevich, via Twitter, announced a “Homecoming” press conference at 11 a.m. at the family’s home in Ravenswood Manor.
