No FBI-Obama Notes For Blago Defense


We need to remain aware of the fierce determination of the corrupt Obama slime machine to cover the ‘One’ at any cost.

Obama and Rod Blagojevich go back a long way – they are old political buddies.  ‘You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours’ is their modus operandi.

This blogger lives is Chicago and believe me, we all know that Gov. Blagojevich is no more guilty than President Obama.

The frightening truth in our country now is:  How far will Patrick Fitzgerald, Eric Holder, and now Judge Zagel go to protect the president?  Ignore the law?

It is unbelievable that Judge Zagel has denied Blagojevich’s  defense access to a FBI interview of President Obama:

No FBI-Obama notes for the defense

reported by Blagojevich on Trial | Chicago Tribune | Blog

Rod Blagojevich’s lawyer, Sam Adam Sr., is laboring through prosecution objections to try to give the jury the idea that there could have been a lot of conversations about Barack Obama’s U.S. Senate seat between former Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his senior staff that the jury won’t hear on undercover recordings.

When Obama won the Iowa caucus in January 2008, didn’t that give him unexpected momentum or “the big mo?” Adam asked former Blagojevich chief of staff John Harris. Surely, there were conversations then about the fact that the governor could have to make a Senate pick, he asked. Harris said there were just a few.

Adam tried to ask the same question about when Hillary Rodham Clinton withdrew from the presidential race as well as when the Democrats held their convention in August 2008, but Assistant U.S. Atty. Carrie Hamilton objected and Judge Zagel sustained those objections.

Harris had testified that the first substantive conversation in which Blagojevich asked what he personally could get for the Senate seat was in October 2008 on a car trip to Northwestern University. Adam tried to ask whether every conversation Blagojevich had on the topic after that was in the presence of either Harris or the governor’s general counsel, William Quinlan, who Adam sometimes slips and calls Bill Clinton.

But Hamilton objected to that, too, at one point looking weary as she wiped a hand over her brow.

Blagojevich has remained still at the defense table, staring at his former chief of staff without smiling as the rest of his legal team sorts through papers.

What happened to Disclosure?  The reason the FBI interviewed Obama was because of the attempt to sell his Senate seat, therefore,  any discussion they had with Obama would is pertinent to the case since his staff was involved in talking to Blagojevich about who would become the next senator from Illinois.  Blagojevich has been made the fall guy.

Sing louder, Blago, sing!  We know you have all the music in your head.
