Blagojevich witness Rajinder Bedi credibility questioned, Federal prosecutors drop arguments to boost sentence of Raghuveer Nayak, US Attorney Office spokesman Randall Samborn confirmed

Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

“Regardless of how this plays out, it benefits Obama. If there is no appeal or the appeal is denied, Blagojevich will be sequestered. If the appeal proceeds, it could drag out beyond impacting the 2012 election cycle. The intent is obvious.”…Citizen Wells, July 19, 2011

 

 

From the Chicago SunTimes February 6, 2014.

“Credibility questioned of key witness against Blagojevich”

“Federal prosecutors told a judge Thursday they were dropping their arguments to boost a connected fundraiser’s prison sentence. The move came after the defense raised questions about their witness’ credibility.

The decision could be significant because that same witness — Rajinder Bedi — played a major role in another case, the trial of now-imprisoned ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

At issue was whether the fundraiser, Raghuveer Nayak, who was charged with a kickback scheme tied to surgical centers he owns, had a separate cash-back scheme involving Bedi.

Both Nayak and Bedi were involved in the Blagojevich investigation. Nayak was the so-called “emissary” to former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., who allegedly offered the Blagojevich camp more than $1 million if Blagojevich appointed Jackson to President Obama’s vacant U.S. Senate seat.

Bedi testified at Blagojevich’s trial that Nayak had engaged in a cash-back scheme, whereby Nayak would write him checks for doing no work and Bedi would kick back the cash. Nayak’s attorney, Tom McQueen, said the prosecution’s reversal in court on Thursday means his client faces charges involving a $23,000 loss to the government, rather than more than $750,000. Federal sentencing guidelines are driven in part by the amount of money that’s lost.

“We withdrew a request for a one-level enhancement today, based on Nayak’s alleged tax loss,” U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Randall Samborn confirmed.”

    REPORT: Federal Judge To Submit Obama Birth Certificate Forgery Evidence To Grand Jury…
    ————————————————————————————————–
    Could this final be the end of Obey?….or can he kill off a complete grand jury?….Time will tell. Either way, it sure is getting hotter and hotter for the usurper.

  4. Reference my last post…….
    Here is what Mr. Blair Sibley and Doug Vogt, who brought this case to the attention of the FEDERAL JUDGE, expects will happen next.
    —————————————————————————————————

    “Let me post what will happen next. Doug and I – a former criminal prosecutor with extensive experience presenting evidence to a grand jury and securing indictments – will be invited to appear before the Grand Jury. Doug to detail the forensic evidence contained in his affidavit; Me to explain the legal options available to the Grand Jury to follow up on the evidence that Doug presents them.

    Operating outside the control of the United States Attorney’s office and with the support of the federal judge and the United States Marshal’s Service, a dozen Federal Grand Jury subpoenas will be issued and served by the Marshal’s Service nationwide.

    The originals of Obama’s birth records from Hawaii, college transcripts from the three colleges he attended, along with his Social Security and Selective Service records would all be compelled to be produced to this Eric Holder-free Grand Jury.

    Additionally, the players in the Obama Birth Certificate pageant would all be called to testify as to their roles:

    REMEMBER, there is no Fifth Amendment privilege to refuse to answer a question put to a witness by a Grand Jury.

    Which is why I say, “Mr. Obama, the People have some questions for you”.

    To which I say, “Let the games begin” !

  12. Should Barack Hussein Obama be Tried, Convicted and Hanged for Treason? 
    By Sher Zieve

  13. RMinNC,
    Years ago, when I lived in the Chicago area, my work took me inside a storage building that stored voting machines when they were not in use. To me the place reeked of the mob, unions, and corruption. I thought to myself at the time, these machines could be easily be tampered with, and do it while you are safely hidden from the public in this “secure building”.

  14. bob strauss — Before we doing any trying for any kind of crime, we need to know who this fellow really is. What is is true name? What is his true parentage? Where was he really born? Why are his records hidden? Who put him up to run for the Presidency? Who stands behind him? Why does everyone in the Press and in Government cover for him? This includes the Conservative Media, i.e. Talk Radio. This is all just plain ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

  15. My tentative answers to my above questions–best as I can make out with the severe lack of true information: 1. His true name at birth: Bari Shabazz, changed to Barry Soetoro after adoption. 2. His true parentage: Father, Malik Shabazz, alias Malcolm X, alias Malcolm Little. Mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. 3. Place of birth: Hawaii. 4. Why records hidden? He worked for the CIA with various IDs & SSNs. The remaining questions–still working on that.

  16. The only way I can imagine the Conservative Media would drop the question of Obama’s true identity is the CIA’s massive PR system has vouched to key leaders in that medium that in the interest of “national security” that subject is “off limits.” That has allowed Obama to fly in under the radar. I guess I’m just repeating myself. I’ve been saying all this since 2008, and haven’t advanced much beyond it. I just thought things would have shaken loose long before now. It is just plain weird, after all that has happened, that nothings has changed.

  17. Dean M.,
    I hope someday we will know the answers, to all of those questions, and some we haven’t even thought up yet. Also hoping there are still people in government that aren’t corrupted, and will actually prosecute the guilty, all the way to Pelosi.

  18. President Obama’s favorite footstool: The famous Resolute desk

    President Obama sparked a stir recently on social media by being photographed with his foot on the famous Resolute desk. A look at his time in the Oval Office shows the Resolute to be one of his favorite resting spots.

    Ten pictures of the disrespectful piece of low-life humanity who purports to be the leader of the free world. Absolutely disgusting.

    RE: “or can he kill off a complete grand jury”……… you bet, Obey will just write another Executive Order to ban the grand jury!

    That sounds about right, but nobody deserves to run into a dead end more than our usurper. Here’s hoping, he’s long overdue.
