  1. It doesn't matter if you are a republican or a democrat, if you undoubtedly committed an a crime you should be fairly punished for the offense. Not one person no matter position of power of any kind should be favored over any other citizen.

  2. Wow all the criminal crooks just like trump sorry ass put TRUMP bigotry bigot ass in jail trump is taking over the government can't you see all criminal crooks he is parting wow no justice in this country time to get out no feedom just slavery in 2020 in this country just a bunch of bigotry bigots criminal crooks put TRUMP sorry ass in jail for treason to this country with all his yes men and women lock all of them up sorry ass people's

  3. Let us never forget that is was Clinton and Obama who harshly imprisoned this man for talking. He didn’t even commit an actual crime. The Democrats/Nazi Party will imprison you while they break the laws.

  4. Hahahahaha how set up is this $hyt.. democracy is over. This confirms Democrats are also in it with Donald dump. Democracy is dead. I guarantee Donald dump going to win the next election.. All this stuff rigged. Feel sorry for all u s.a citizens. 🤢🤢🤢🤢

  5. I dunno i think trumps scared of something. He's looking for backup for a reason these pardons probably come with a ulterior motive trumps a this for that guy and he is one to try to cover his mistakes. In this video he sounds like a dictator telling people he's the boss him lol

  6. Obama commuted the sentence of Chelsea Manning, the Army soldier who was convicted by court-martial in July
    2013 for violating the Espionage Act after giving WikiLeaks nearly 750,000 classified, or unclassified but sensitive, military and diplomatic documents which endangered
    American lives.

    Bill Clinton pardoned his half-brother Roger Clinton!

  7. Something smells really fishy. 50% sentence reducing? Convicted for 17 counts of corruption, fraud an extortion.

    Update: After a few minutes on google; he was on the apprentice season 3 and received $9000 in donation between 2003 and 2007. So…do the math.

  8. Trust those who have been trained for years in law enforcement more than an orange faced phoney con man traitor who just makes his authoritarian self chief law enforcement officer of the country.

  9. FALN Commutation of 1999[edit]

    On August 11, 1999, Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 members of FALN, which is a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.[5] The 16 were convicted of conspiracy and sedition and sentenced with terms ranging from 35 to 105 years in prison. Congress, however, recognizes that the FALN is responsible for "6 deaths and the permanent maiming of dozens of others, including law enforcement officials." Clinton offered clemency on the condition that the prisoners renounce violence, seeing as none of the 16 had been convicted of harming anyone and they had already served 19 years in prison. This action was lobbied for by ten Nobel Laureates and the Archbishop of Puerto Rico.[6] The commutation was opposed by the U.S. Attorney's Office, the FBI, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons and was criticized by many, including former victims of FALN terrorist activities and the Fraternal Order of Police.[7] Hillary Clinton, then campaigning for her first term in the Senate, initially supported the commutation,[8] but withdrew her support three days later.[9]

    Congress condemned this action by President Clinton, with votes of 95–2 in the Senate and 311–41 in the House.[10][11] The U.S. House Committee on Government Reform held an investigation on the matter, but the Justice Department prevented FBI officials from testifying.[12] President Clinton cited executive privilege for his refusal to turn over some documents to Congress related to his decision to offer clemency to members of the FALN terrorist group.

    Among those who accepted clemency are:

    Edwin Cortes, sentenced to 35 years in prison.
    Elizam Escobar, sentenced to 60 years in prison.
    Ricardo Jimenez, sentenced to 90 years in prison.
    Adolfo Matos, sentenced to 70 years in prison.
    Dylcia Noemi Pagan, sentenced to 55 years in prison.
    Alicia Rodríguez, sentenced to 55 years in prison.
    Ida Luz Rodriguez, sentenced to 75 years in prison.
    Luis Rosa, sentenced to 75 years in prison.
    Carmen Valentin, sentenced to 90 years in prison.
    Alberto Rodriguez, sentenced to 35 years in prison.
    Alejandrina Torres, sentenced to 35 years in prison.
    Juan Enrique Segarra-Palmer, sentenced to 55 years in prison; released on 25 January 2004.[13][14]

    Those who rejected clemency include:

    Antonio Camacho-Negron, sentenced to 15 years in prison; released in 2006.
    Oscar López Rivera, sentenced to 70 years in prison, released in 2017 after sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama

  10. No surprise here,lolololol lolololol if anyone is paying attention, look at the charges of the men he is parting, they are either friends or they are charged with the same crimes he is accused of. Right now barr is ok, but he better stop thinking he's running anything, or he could find himself on the wrong side of Caligula, my bag, I mean trump lolololol.

  11. Come on America. We keep seeing lie following lie, corruption following corruption – this is who you want as president? He is lining his pockets with YOUR MONEY. WAKE UP! Get rid of this despicable clown at the voting booth.

  12. Oh shut up cnn is a bunch of haters of the President and I’m sick of getting notified about there news complete Haters

  13. Typical CNN. They won’t show him and what he has to say. Instead, they perpetuate their own version of the story with a handpicked opinion panel. Wonder what they thought of Clinton pardoning Marc Rich? Wasn’t his “bought” through his wife giving $550,000 to the Clintons? CNN has been going down at the head and fast for awhile..now it’s reaching aft

  14. I live in Illinois and was amazed about the time of his sentence when every other Illinois politician is just as corrupt as Blagojevich.

  15. GREAT MOVE BY TRUMP, GENIUS. HERE ARE THE DEMS BACK THEN. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFd671Ffgq8

    THE BREAK UP OF CHICAGO POLITICS. ILL FOR TRUMP!

  16. The biggest problem is Blagojevich has no remorse in his interview he acted as if the federal prosecutors did him wrong. "Dude they have a recording of you committing the crimes you were convicted of." 🤦‍♂️ He must believe in them alternative facts.

  17. Blagojevich told Trump he had a sure fire scheme to make billions of dollars for both of them but only if he is free. He said he needed a front so the marks will rise to the bait. Trump loved it but when it goes tits up, Trump will not know who Blagojevich was, never met him, just like all the crooks that Trump introduced to America. He disowns anybody who gets caught. (captured). Even American soldiers who are captured by America's enemies.

  18. Wow…the Trumpster is now doing Jesus' kind of things…real forgiveness, something your ilk cannot fathom. Was it him or the big J?? Well maybe the prez listened when J spoke to him. You speak of corruption and pay to play? That's your corner of the market. You cockroaches are all about that. Think of Hillary, Biden, the Comey coverup, and the long list of crimes you the other presstitutes cover for everyday. You are on your way to extinction as the almighty wipes you from the planet…now eat your feces lunch!!

  19. “Do you realize, I have twice been given a longer prison sentence than Al Capone?” he says. “I’ve been given a prison sentence by the same judge who gave a mafia hit man…he acknowledged under oath, a contract killer, my judge gave me a longer sentence than him!”
    Blagojevich is correct. And he drew that 14-year sentence in a case where the government was never able to prove that he took any money. Still, his case achieved worldwide notoriety, branding Blagojevich as a virtual poster child for political corruption. And the U.S. Attorney’s office in Chicago is preparing to vigorously fight still another Blagojevich appeal.

    “All I’m asking for is–apply the law,” he says. “And if you apply the right law, I didn’t cross the line.”

    Communist Nepotism Network has all your heads up your own ass.
    YOU lazy Marxists spend no time actually researching… anything. Just embarrassing circle-jerks.
    REAL Democracy in action, ratings. Millions used to watch this garbage and they're tuning out now.

  20. Damn trump! Freeing all his far right republican friends. Blago won election due to the russians and putin. We all know thats the only way a facist republican can win in illinois! Impeach all republicans! ggbernie!

  21. they threw a few of his good hench men in , he let a few of his good hench men out , call that coming full circle , folks !

  22. The rule of law is trampled with these commutations, obviously an effort to normalize a pantheon of criminal actors. We can only imagine the effect on a legal system led down a path of disregard for the rule of law.

  23. trump. synonymous with orange, worthless, liar, traitor, corrupt, dicktator, non-stop liar, stupid, ill-informed, corrupt (bears repeating twice), setting us up to accept his future pardons of his fellow criminal criminals. God, America. Whatever this piece of shit means to you, is he really worth throwing away our democracy and our planet, our only home, Mother Earth, for?

    Hell no.

  24. You get a Pardon and you get a Pardon and you get a Pardon look under your seats because YOU ALL GET PARDONS 😂😂😂😂😂😂 This is so sick it's funny to think he is running on fighting corruption 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯

  25. 8 years in enough already,all you hacks in the comments pissed,think of the guys family,he has done enough time….Dont stress cnn'ers The Orange Man Can Still Stay Bad for you.

  26. HERES THE WAY IT WORKS IN THE REAL WORLD:

    IF YOU ARE A GOVERNMENT CONTRACTOR AND YOU WANT TO SEE THE SENATOR OR CONGRESSPERSON WHOM SITS ON THE COMMITTED THAT GOVERNS YOUR PRODUCT, IT IS STANDARD PROCEDURE AND COMPLETELY UP FRONT AND OPEN THAT YOU WILL HAVE A CHECK FOR $25,000 OR $35,000 BEFORE THEY WILL LET YOU INTO THE OFFICE!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT IS THE WAY IT WORKS IN DC…..SORRY IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT……THEY ALL USE THAT TO FUND THEIR REELECTION…… HE DID EXACTLY THE SAME THING AND THEY CAME AFTER HIM FOR DOING EXACTLY EXACTLY EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO!!! THE FIRST TIME I SAW THIS IN ACTION I WAS APPALLLLLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE SECRETARY ASKED US IF WE HAD OUR CHECK LIKE IT IS STANDARD PROCEDURE…….THEY ALL DO IT EVERY DAY.. BUT THAT’S THE WAY THINGS WORK!!!! I find it strange cNN isnt playing Rod's speech from yesterday1!! That in itself is telling cuz cnn is covering up!!

  27. This son of a bitch was and is guilty and he happens to be Trumps kind of guy. He knew what he did is wrong and should have said sorry pass it along. This guys kids are so proud.

  28. Why did he do it. He wanted to put it in the eye of every other law abiding citizen of America. Just to say you piss ants I will do anything and the hell with justice and the Constitution.

  29. We the people MUST take control with the Ballot, the private Bar! The judges, and attorneys have way to much power! Most problems in the US start with the Bar members.

  30. I can see why CNN is bottom of the barrel ratings wise, will be blocking from youtube. There is no analysis here, it's literally rambling.

  31. LOL.. This fool already spent 9 years out of the 14 years sentence… He could have been released on "good behavior" two years ago! What, no "early release" from federal prison?

  32. Notice the latin american anchor baby emphasises the president was in the middle of "all these CRIMINAL investigations" no he was innocent until proven guilty, he wasnt proven guilty, in fact it was all deep state democrat coop using faked impeachment just like their faked russian collusion which propaganda stole them the house! The fact that this illiniois democrat governor was found guilty just further supports the fact that the democrats are in it for pay to play just as Clinton is seen doing with her fake charity, and the millions russia gave for Uranium ONe, and Biden's son receiving millions from Ukraine's Burisma! Democrats are enemies of the state and all should be arrested and tried in a court of law. They wont come out as squeeky clean as our great President Trump!

  33. Does that bother you that trump commuted a Democrats sentence? Oh it would be ok if it didnt expose CNN, CIA, obama,, and Chicago mob politics. CNN your smug lies and propaganda will not go unpunished. For NOTHING UNDER THE SUN STAYS HIDDEN, hence fraud MSM false witness, Eric, trump, stone, Flynn, barr, funny how every single appointment or nominee by trump is MSM, CIA, and house of rep target! All of them! Your busted CNN, with your CIA agents pretending to be news anchors, and media owned by CIA demicrat mob families. They looking to control ppl by pretending to be news sources. Ppl are woke and we are the news now. Yall just cia hacks with agenda of enslaving ppl. Smug your face to that, but he who laugh last, laughs last. Your secrets will be exposed, drip drip, tic toc.

  34. I'm 1 minute into this video. Wonder if CNN will mention names like Robert Mueller, James Comey, and Patrick Fitzgerald. This trio sent Blagojevich away. They tried with President Trump… Godzilla 2020! Orange man bad!! MAGA!!! https://youtu.be/hCzWo1UCMC0

  35. CNN should consider getting rid of Brook Baldwin. Every time she interviews someone, she comes across as a smug, entitled little brat. Bad look CNN.

  36. Rob blagojevich is talking about how he's getting closer to God, well if you're getting closer to God the first thing you need to do is admit your wrongdoing, and not try to justify them, you can't get closer to God and still trying to denied your sins
