On Fox, Rod Blagojevich's wife Patti criticizes Robert Mueller and James Comey: "These same people are trying to do the same thing that they did to my husband on a much larger scale. They were emboldened: They took down a governor and now they've got their sights much higher." pic.twitter.com/tDI8EJFEi8— Max Tani (@maxwelltani) May 31, 2018
Among his many corrupt actions, Blago, a Democrat, tried to sell a U.S. senate seat, and he tried to extort the Tribune company. The Illinois house voted all but unanimously to impeach him. The only dissenting vote came from his sister-in-law. The Illinois senate convicted him 59-0.
His subsequent criminal convictions included lying to federal agents, attempting to sell a U.S. Senate seat, and 6 counts related to fundraising extortion.
Support for Blagojevich's impeachment and criminal conviction was bipartisan and widespread. He's a criminal, which was recognized by a jury of his peers and literally every elected state representative except for his sister-in-law.
I did find his lengthy prison sentence to be harsh (14 years, of which he must serve 12), but he was sentenced according to the federal guidelines for his crimes.
