Blago is back and he wants Pres BO to speak at his trial:
"Blagojevich's attorneys had filed a motion Thursday asking to have President Obama give testimony for the ex-governor's corruption trial." (Chicago2)
John Kass has a few thoughts about Blago's intentions:
"So allow me to translate the Chicago Way.
"Dear Barack, my old friend. I want you to use all your powers, all your skills, to make me an offer I can't refuse.
I'm Mr. Celebrity-get-me-out-of-here, and you better get me out of here.
Of course, it's tough to believe Blago, a rather corrupt Chicago politician.
At the same time, it's tough to believe that Barrack Obama grew up in the Chicago Way without getting his hands dirty or making some bad deals.
BO is a man who hung around with some rather strange people on his way to the White House: the racist minister that he never heard, Tony Rezko and the whole Chicago machine!
For the sake of the country, let's hope that Pres BO told the truth about his involvement in the sale of the US Senate seat.
We don't need a president with legal problems, specially the kinds of legal problems that Chicago is well known for.
Again, let's hope so because the country does not need this right now.
P.S. Check some of these items because they are interesting, to say the least:Obama had a secret phone call with Blagojevich
Redacted portion: President-elect Obama also spoke to Governor Blagojevich on December 1, 2008 in Philadelphia.
On Harris Cell Phone Call # 139, John Harris and Governor’s legal counsel discuss a conversation Blagojevich had with President-elect Obama.
The government claims a conspiracy existed from October 22, 2008 continuing through December 9, 2008.
That conversation is relevant to the defense of the government’s theory of an ongoing conspiracy.
Only Rod Blagojevich and President Obama can testify to the contents of that conversation.
The defense is allowed to present evidence that corroborates the defendant’s testimony."
We are not trying to play Perry Mason. Nevertheless, this could get very interesting and extremely embarrassing for Pres BO!
