Obama has been subpoenaed in the Rod “Senate Seats for Sale” Blagojevich trial. But somewhere an IT has his head on the chopping block, because the redacted subpoena released online was anything but. A simple copy-paste managed to uncover that which was supposed to be blacked out. Oopsy!
BTW, remember back on Dec 9, 2008, when BigO was all, “I have not been in contact with that man. Rod Blagojevich.” Guess again! One of the allegations in the non-redacted redacted subpoena – BigO called Blago on Dec 1, 2008.
President-elect Obama also spoke to Governor Blagojevich on December 1, 2008 in Philadelphia. Source
There’s all kinds of other goodies in the non-redacted redacted subpoena, like information on ties and possible election law violations invovling BigO and Tony Resko. There are allegations that BigO was totally informed and involved in the selection of his replacement, and somehow Rahm “The Ballerina” Emmanuel is involved in all this too. Seriously. Sounds to me like Blago is refusing to be the fall guy here.
Buckle up kiddos. This is gonna be a bumpy ride.
