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

“Blagojevich’s lawyers to ask full court to rule on appeal

Lawyers for former Gov. Rod Blagojevich plan to ask the full 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to decide his appeal after a three-judge panel of the court recently upheld 13 of the 18 counts on which he was convicted.

Blagojevich’s appellate lawyer, Leonard Goodman, said he would file for the en banc hearing by the deadline Tuesday.

In its July 21 decision, the three-judge panel threw out five counts and ordered his 14-year sentence vacated, but tempered the small legal victory by calling the evidence against Blagojevich “overwhelming” and making it clear he will likely remain locked up for years to come.

The same judge who imposed the original sentence — a frequent target of the defense for his alleged unfairness — will decide Blagojevich’s punishment.”

At the news conference, Goodman said he was stunned that the court didn’t address many of the alleged evidentiary errors that the former governor’s appeal raised.

“And the ones it does address, it gets it wrong,” said Goodman, referring in particular to the trial judge’s decision to exclude testimony from Blagojevich that he believed his actions were lawful. “So it’s shocking to me that after a year and a half this could be the result of the court’s work.””
