Blagojevich trial bigger than Watergate, Nation at mercy of prosecutors
I have stated for some time that the current situation with an ineligible president who is deeply tied to Chicago and Illinois corruption is much bigger than Watergate. Richard Nixon attempted to bypass the US Constitution and separation of powers. Thank God for people like Barry Goldwater, who ignored party affiliation, and Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox who stuck to their principles.
We are rapidly approaching another crisis with the Blagojevich trial starting this week on June 3. Except this time the situation is worse. We have the trial of former IL Governor Blagojevich that will most certainly, if prosecutors do their job, tie Obama to much of the same Chicago corruption. At least with Nixon, we had a natural born citizen not tied to Chicago corruption.
The trial has not begun yet and there are well founded suspicions that continued chicanery, pay to play Chicago style, is going on. It is believed that Obama met with Patrick Fitzgerald recently in Chicago. The question is, will Fitzpatrick and the US Justice Department perform their constitutional duty to check abuse of power in IL and the White House? God help us if they don’t.
