Lock Him Up!

August 9, 2019

Congressional Republicans from Illinois have issued a joint statement asking President Trump not to commute the sentence of former Governor Rod Blagojevich  

Convicted and sentenced for fourteen years for attempting to sell appointment to the vacant seat of Sen. Barack Obama, former Governor Rod Blagojevich has served seven years in prison.

We’re living in a period when politics has become very ugly and cries of “Lock’er up” directed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are joined by efforts to convict President Trump for misdeeds after he leaves office.

This desire for retribution must stop.

Hillary Clinton lost a Presidential election, for God’s sake. That is punishment enough.

Seven years in prison for Governor Blagojevich are more than enough.

And the idea that President Trump’s enemies will pursue him after he leaves office is foolish. It would be safer to enter a lion’s cage at the National Zoo than to threaten Donald Trump when he is in office.

Let it pass.
