This story continues to get better. Rod Blagojevich’s defense team seeks to subpoena President Obama to testify during Blago’s corruption case. Obama is familiar with the pay-to-play scam. After all, he is a product of the Chicago political scene. Maybe we will get to see the what Obama actually knows about this case.
Lawyers for Rod Blagojevich filed a motion Thursday seeking to subpoena President Obama to testify in the corruption case against the former Illinois governor.
The 10-page motion contends that Obama must have information in the case because the charges against Blagojevich involve alleged deal-making to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Obama when he became president.
“The defense understands that the President of the United States of America is not a routine witness and would not request his appearance if it did not think he was critical to the liberty of Rod Blagojevich,” the motion says.
According to the motion, Obama‘s public assertion that he had no involvement in talks about filling his Senate seat contradicts information from another witness in the case.
In addition, the motion says that Tony Rezko, a political fundraiser convicted of fraud charges who has links to Obama, is a government witness in the case and that Obama can offer testimony about him.
Tony Rezko. Where have we heard that name before? Oh yes, he is the one that helped Obama get his home in Chicago. Ever notice that the company Obama keeps happens to be full of shady individuals? Just asking.
Wouldn’t it be great to see O-big ears up there on the stand umming, ahhing and uhhing? Of course Obama will deny he was privy to anything between Blago, Rezko and any other person associated with him. I believe Valerie Jarrett was up for Obama’s old seat and now works inside his administration. Of course, this is all just circumstantial and just a coincidence.
UPDATE: Obama has some explaining to do. Looks like the commander-in-chief lied about his conversations with convicted fraudster Tony Rezko. Also it looks like Obama ‘overtly’ recommended Valerie Jarrett for his old seat. The corruption keeps getting deeper and deeper.
