Actually, it’s not that bad for Zero. All of the tapes have Blago ranting about getting nothing from Zero in exchange for his senate candidate.
The only thing that could bite Zero in the butt is if it later comes out that he did in fact have at least one meeting (face to face or on the tapped phones) with Blago about Zero’s replacement. Zero has denied that he ever met with Blago for that purpose, so he would then be caught in a lie. (I hope Fitz puts Zero in front of a Grand Jury.)
I think Zero knew for a long time that Blago’s phones were tapped and so he knew not to offer any quid pro quo to Blago for a senate appointment. That’s why Blago went so ballistic when he was turned down.
And that’s why guys like Emmanuel do the dirty work.
“Actually, its not that bad for Zero. All of the tapes have Blago ranting about getting nothing from Zero in exchange for his senate candidate.”
All of the tapes RELEASED! Fitz said he has only released information pertaining to the case against Blago himself.
Zero's problem (so far) seems to be his denials and his lying about innocent behavior.
If you have knowledge of a felony - solicitation of a bribe for example - you have to notify the authorities. THAT’S Obama’s problem.
