The blacked-out portions of a subpoena request filed by lawyers for former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich — which were revealed through a simple computer trick — suggest President Obama may have played a role in finding his own Senate replacement.
On Thursday, Blagojevich’s lawyers asked a federal judge to subpoena the president to testify about questions surrounding the government’s allegation that Blagojevich was selling or trading Obama’s Senate seat after his election to the White House in November 2008.
“President Barack Obama has direct knowledge of the Senate seat allegation,” reads Blagojevich’s 11-page motion, filed with U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel.
And my favorite portion….
Meanwhile, “a supporter of Presidential Candidate Obama” suggested she talked to Blagojevich’s wife about Jarrett and “mentioned in a phone call on November 3, 2008, having offered ‘fundraising’ in exchange for Senate Candidate B for senator.”
Valerie Jarrett is known to be “Senate Candidate B”. And it appears Mr. Obama was ready to trade favors for her appointment. Yawn, business as usual in the Obama regime. More “transparancy” in government (like clear tape over our mouths and eyes).
