FOX: The wife of imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich said she was disappointed the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the Democrat’s final appeal, and asked President Donald Trump to pardon him.
Blagojevich is serving a 14-year sentence in connection with trying to sell President Barack Obama’s senate seat.
The open seat, which Blagojevich called “f*****g golden” in evidentiary recordings, eventually went to former Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.).
Patricia Blagojevich said the Supreme Court decided against “end[ing] this very dangerous conflict we have in the law right now.”
Blagojevich told Tucker Carlson she is publicly asking for President Donald Trump to pardon her husband, as he recently did for former Cheney aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby. more
