What Will Blago's Lawyers Do?: A Primer on the Upcoming Trial of Rod Blagojevich

by Paul Huebl

I’m no fan of Former Governor Rod Blagojevich because he’s part and parcel of the criminal enterprise that runs Chicago and now the Whitehouse. Blago is set to spin the Wheel Of Misfortune at Chicago's Federal District Court on June 3rd.

Still Blago is entitled to a fair trial with proper discovery and the right to subpoena witnesses for his defense. Blago will get anything but a fair trial and can count on being in prison at least until the U.S. Supreme Court has an opportunity to look at the 7th Circuit court of Appeals judges legal sabotage of Blago’s rights.

I’m absolutely convinced that Barack Obama is part and parcel to any attempts to sell his former senate seat. Blago has the goods on Obama and I don’t think he’s willing to fall on his sword without bringing down Obama and his presidency. I’d be absolutely shocked if Obama is not part of every criminal conspiracy that gave him an opportunity to do what Chicago Democrats all do.

Blago should have gotten immunity to bring down all the Chicago rats. Instead they have tried to craft a trial where release of facts of other’s criminal activity is forbidden.

The old criminal defense war horses, Sam Adam, Sr. and Ed Genson have been hogtied by the court in every way possible. Defending the hapless Blago under those conditions will be challenging to say the least.

I look for Genson and Adam to stir the Whitehouse excrement in a big way. If they don’t, their client is sure to do that during his show trial at the Dirkson Building.

The problem is the unlimited ability the Whitehouse and Chicago democratic party has to extort from and bribe anyone and everyone. Witnesses, judges, prosecutors, jurors and defense lawyers will all have the payday of their wildest dreams if they cooperate. There will be hell to pay if they don’t.

Read the rest here.


  1. RW - Not sure what's going on here but if the WH has the ability to "bribe anyone and everyone" as the author writes, than surely Blago would be first on the list.

  2. Remember it was the Bush Administration that took Blago down. Now Obama has to be careful how he resolves the "problem" since lots of eyes are watching. It all has to be done in the dark.
