WASHINGTON D.C. (RFD) — Clemency for Rod Blagojevich. President Donald Trump commuted the prison sentence for the former Governor. Trump said on an airport tarmac that he felt Blago’s sentence was too harsh and it was time for his children to see him more.
Blagojevich was originally scheduled to serve 14 years in prison. The 63 year old former Governor was being held in a federal penitentiary in Colorado. Blagojevich is planning a press conference today to make some of his first public statements after leaving prison.
