Now that Rod Blagojevich has been released from prison, he is wasting no time getting back to work to try and get back at those who did him wrong that got him put in prison in the first place.
Namely, I'm talking about Barack Obama, and Blagojevich says that he has the goods on Obama. He also said that the same people who are responsible for interfering in the 2016 election, are the same people who interfered in the 2008 election.
The story goes that in 2008, Robert Mueller was so successful in getting Obama into the White House, that James Comey tried doing the same thing for Hillary in 2016.
"Well, let me just say this, that the current president has trumped the former president when it comes to the testicular virility necessary to do the right thing and to undo injustice," Blagojevich told host Jesse Watters. "I went to prison and spent nearly eight years in prison for things that aren't crimes, routine politics."
"A lot of the same fake stuff that they tried to do to President Trump, they've done to me and some of the very same people, some of the same characters who did it to me are involved in doing it to President Trump," he added.
Recently, Blagojevich spoke with Anderson Cooper which ended up in a pretty heated discussion in which Cooper even said that what Blagojevich was saying was a bunch of bulls**t.
Fox News reported,
The CNN host balked at the claim, accusing Blagojevich of essentially comparing himself to Nelson Mandela -- the late South African leader who was long imprisoned because of a racist apartheid system.
"I bet if you were to ask Nelson Mandela whether he thought it was fair in the early ‘60s in South Africa he would say what I'm saying today," Blagojevich fired back.
Cooper interjected: "I've just got to stop you. As someone who worked in South Africa and saw apartheid, the idea that you are comparing yourself to somebody who has actually been railroaded by an apartheid system is just nuts and, frankly offensive."
Blagojevich reminded Cooper that it was he, not Blagojevich, who brought Mandela's name into the conversation.
Blagojevich then told Cooper a more apt comparison would be to U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., whose own federal corruption case was thrown out by a Newark federal judge in 2018. The U.S. Justice Department ultimately opted against retrying the Menendez case.
"What I’m saying is, I was thrown in prison and spent nearly eight years in prison for practicing politics -- for seeking campaign contributions without a quid pro quo. No express quid pro quo -- and I was given the same standards Senator Menendez was given," Blagojevich said. "I could very well have been in the U.S. Senate instead of where I was."
