Guilty 1 count- False Statements; Unleash the Blago ~ Verdict coming in

Blago GUILTY on ONLY 1 count (False Statements), deadlocked on 23 other counts, Shep Smith saying guilty on corruption in office…, ahh clarification, only 1 count which breaks into 2 acts, still only guilty on 1 count

Ace has the flaming Blago skull up as we await the verdict on the 2-3 counts the jury agreed on…Frankly I want Blago to walk, he didn’t do anything Obama didn’t do IMO, he just didn’t have ‘friends’ in high places snd he ran his mouth too much…shxt it’s practically a requirement in Chicago Politics the ole’ quid pro quo…

here’s hopin’ Blago gets off, it would be worth it just to see O and Shep Smith get pixxed….

Blago Presser at 3:00pm EST…

Yes the Byronic Blago is Back!!

FOX will cover it LIVE

blagojevich

This morning in a 45 minute radio interview Governor Blagojevich indicated that ultimately at some point, he wants to call witnesses in his defense including Rahm Emanuel and Valerie Jarrett as well as JJ Jr…since he plans to boycott the Senate Impeachment perhaps that will ultimately happen in a criminal trial, should he be impeached…

You KNOW they are gritting their teeth in the WH…

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

The governor’s radio appearance kicked off what’s expected to be a media blitz that could include appearances on national news networks within the next several days. Blagojevich signaled he has no plans to show up in Springfield on Monday for the start of his impeachment trial if the rules don’t change.

The wide-ranging interview touched on everything from his profanity-laced tirades that were secretly recorded by the FBI (“I apologize for some of the profanity, but had I known they were listening I wouldn’t have used those words,” he said.) to his mental state (“I feel my mental state’s where it’s always been. You can judge whether or not that’s a good place or a bad place.”) to whether he feels betrayed by his friends and other Democratic politicians (“This experience is an experience in the human condition in a highly pressurized environment with big stakes involved. . . . There are several elements in an experience like this that’s painful and very unfortunate.”)…

-snip-

Blagojevich reiterated statements he made yesterday that rules governing his trial are unfair and that he would like to call several witnesses to defend him, including White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and President Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. He also said he’d like to call U.S. Rep Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) and even U.S. senators Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) and John McCain (R-Arizona), who he says had worked closely with him.

“Just let me bring my witnesses in to show people, and to have them under oath testify before the Senate, that I have not done anything wrong, and I’ve done most things right,” the governor said. “If they just give me a chance to bring witnesses, I’ll be there first thing Monday morning.”…

…”I think the fix is in,” he said “They’ve even put in a date where the trial is going to end. How can you do that if you’re going to be fair?…He also said, “I can be soldier in the fight for constitutional rights.”

the presser should be fascinating, Blago always is, I look forward to more poetry from the ‘soldier in the fight for constitutional rights’…Blago is taking no prisoners in interviews if this is any indication:

…On Mayor Daley, Cook County Board President Todd Stroger and House Speaker Michael Madigan (D-Chicago): The governor said raising cash for his campaign fund “was important because I knew from the beginning . . . that if I was going to be in a position to take them all on . . . then I needed to be in a position politically where I could afford . . . afford to say to Mayor Daley and Mike Madigan No, I’m not Todd Stroger. I’m not going to raise the sales tax because you guys have a bunch of precinct captains in county government. No, sorry, I’m not going to raise the income tax because the city of Chicago gets a portion of that and that would be unfair and burdening working people.”More on Stroger: “I’ll tell you why there’s a lot of business leaving Cook County. It’s because of Todd Stroger’s sales tax increase.”…
