    Really??? Blago was never part of the DC Swamp. In fact, this action was a swipe at Comey, who was a part of the DC Swamp.

    I give that comment a 96%. Well done. Ignore the superficial, and dig for The Truth.

    It's all about govt corruption dude. It's funny how people can rationalize that. If Obama had commuted his sentence you'd been calling for his head.

    This x 100.

    He'll find something. He's a corrupt scumbag politician. He'll fit right back in to Chicago politics.

    I don't see the advantage or benefit. Campaign promises of draining the swamp were great. Hot Rod is the epitome of the swamp and should pay the full penalty of his crimes, in my opinion.

    Everything he does now should be with an eye on re-election.
    Bad optics Donald, bad optics. You should have waited until Dec.

    It's not like he could ever get elected again.
    It cost a lot of money to keep a guy in prison. Lets keep the most dangerous guys in for a long time and let the idiots like Blagojevich out after a few years.

    Not sure if serious or sarcastic. I'm no fan of Blago but the timing of this is interesting in the context of Flynn and Stone. Politically Blago is dead so why not exploit this for some other objective?

    I wonder if Bernie will have to fight NYPD, for his right for them, to re-issue him a new Retiree ID, with out the NO firearms restriction.

    After all, a presidential pardon restores ALL your rights, as if the offense never happened. Also, to see if his state of residence, the Republic of New Jersey reinstates his carry license and FOID card.

    Trump knows what he`s doing, just let him do what he does, it will be worth it.
    The 2024 election is what you all should be ALOT more concerned with.

    TRUMP 2020!!!

    Unless they completely changed the system, the used to be level One camps, now called Minimum Security Camps, are for non-violent offenders who have no violence in their past. I know a bit about the sentencing guide lines.

    Regardless of his motivation or ulterior motives ( if they exist)...he will be crucified by the MSM for the pardons...too bad, as his predecessor was given a pass for his pardons...

    This was just plain wrong. The highest elected official in the State is found to be completely corrupt. Don't forget he's doing time for what he was convicted of, not all of what he did. So let's show the people of Illinois that we JUST DON'T CARE if their politicians are corrupt and that your being taxed to death to pay for all the graft and bribery. Four out of what was it? Seven Governor's get convicted of crimes in office so instead of a harsh sentence to be served, I'll just go ahead and pardon him to show the people of Illinois that their rolling a rock up hill. This is outrageous. If anything showed me Trump supporter's here are blind, it was support of this move. As someone said, What if Obama had done this? "Oh, but Obama did!" So okay, that means you support wrongdoing in office? BS Dirty Politics.
