I hate to say it, but I agree with the crazy man occupying the big house in Illinois. Blago will not be able to put on a defense. Since Blago cannot call any witnesses involved with the selling of the Obama senate seat, he cannot really put on a defense.
Blago released a bunch of paperwork on Friday showing that indeed Rahm Emanuel and Valerie Jarrett are indeed still part of the Fitzgerald investigation.
So it should be interesting where this trial leads.
The trial begins today.
Now I am also fully convinced that Blago was not only trying to seel the senate seat, but he has been involved in many more schemes in Illinois.
However, everyone deserves a fair trial, and I am not sure the Illinois state senate cares about that. It is like the senators are trying to distance themselves and are not worried about fairness.
