Trump Is Getting Called Out for His Latest Questionable Attempt to Explain Why He Commuted Rod Blagojevich's Sentence
President Donald Trump raised eyebrows this week when he commuted the sentences of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, resulting in his release from prison.
Blagojevich infamously attempted to sell the vacant Senate seat left open by the election of President Barack Obama to President of the United States. Recorded calls showed Blagojevich saying he wouldn't give the seat away "for nothing."
