The timing on this could be interesting.
The dems are trying to impeach him, and what if he pardons one of them?
Then what are they going to do?
Blago’s sentence runs to spring of 2024. Timing is everything for Trump....so there’s some schedule existing where a ‘group’ of folks needing a pardon will likely occur. It either has to occur prior to the primary season, or after election (my humble opinion).
... We've mentioned it before (and in light of the political stances by the Machine that pretty much railroaded Blago into fifteen years), any deal for a pardon or commutation ought to include an extensive prison exit interview with Blago naming names of everyone he did business with, starting with his father-in-law and working through mayor's office to the state house. And seeing these quotes from his former "friends" ought to make that decision a simple one.
