    This isn't the sort of thing you do without careful consideration of all the possible outcomes and effects.

    I believe Trump knows what he is doing and he did this for a specific purpose.

    This is an obvious political gambit. Well, maybe not that obvious.

    Happyguy :)

    That all sounds a little swampy, no?

    This is an eyelash away from "the Lord moves in mysterious ways"...
    Rod blagoyovitch tried to sell a senate seat for money... .this isn't 5 dimensional chess, it's just a scumbag with friends in high places getting help..
    This is quintessential swamp activity, and if a democrat president did this you all would be singing a different tune...
    But it's the man who can't be questioned, the infallible genius.... See point #1

    What connection does Trump have to Blago? What is the relationship? Why would he care about him?

    What's really funny is that you think he would do this without any thought or reason at all.

    How many times does he have to prove you wrong?

    I'm sure he's a friend of a friend and I'm also sure Trump thought it would be good politics to forgive a couple from the other side before he does the same to Stone and Flynn.

    Makes you wonder doesn't it... He was on his reality TV show, and considering they share that same sociopathic personality traits perhaps they hit it off ...
    But I'm not sure that's not it, I'm sure just felt he was oppressed and mistreated and decide he had to right a great wrong that had be done to this poor poor man...

    Just like I'm completely sure that when blago doesn't help trump take down the deep state, or imprison Nancy pelosi or what ever nonsensical purient fantasy is ping ponging around the heads of the true believers you'll admit this wasn't done for some higher purpose...

    I don't know what that's all about. I just think it's hilarious watching people underestimate Trump over and over and over.

    I'm afraid to talk to my Best Friend, an Illinois resident, who is a staunch Republican, pro Trump, anti Illinois Democratic Politician guy. He is furious with Illinois taxes and corruption and actually threw a party when Blagovitch was locked up.

    Well.. ok then...
    Then I suggest you assume it is exactly what it looks like, and not some stroke of political/patriotic genius just because your hero did it...
    Blagoyovitch was and is an utter sleazeball, corrupt to the core, who got caught trying to sell a senate appointment for money..
    There was nothing "unfair" or inappropriate with his sentence...
    Trump, decided to do a favor for a friend, a sleazy corrupt sociopathic friend... No wonder they hit it off .
    No sir, what it looks like ain't too good, no matter how much lipstick gets desperately smeared on this pig....

    I wouldn't worry about it, if he's as pro trump as you say his ability to rationalize Trump's actions is well developed... He's probably already squared that circle, and has moved on to be outraged about AOC's haircut or some such nonsense

    That actually sounds about right; at least, it makes about as much sense as anything else I have heard...

    I cannot think of any President, ever, who didn't pardon/commute sentencing on a bunch of scumbags; it's a head scratch, every time, no matter who is in the White House....

    Well, well. The so called "Drama Queen" get's jumped on for telling the truth. I was wondering how TNW'rs were going to spin this. No real spin. Just put on you pugnacious face and say Trump's da guy! This one's not going away. Blago was sentenced to a term less than he should have got. "Murder's get less". So let's forgive all sentencing because someone screwed up and light sentenced some dirt bag. Love the rational behind that! Drain the Swamp, indeed. Let's just create a bigger Swamp! This is disgusting and trying to make it palatable is even more disgusting. Martha Stewart as a come back. God!
