President Donald Trump is expected to commute the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, multiple senior level sources tell ABC News.
Among the causes that lead to Blagojevich's original conviction was the charge that he sought to exchange an appointment to former President Barack Obama's vacated U.S. Senate seat in exchange for campaign money.
Blagojevich, a Democrat, has been a resident of the Federal Correctional Institution, in Englewood -- near Littleton, Colorado -- since March 15, 2012, where he is known as Inmate No. 40892-424.

I wonder if. Lago will convert to republican over the pardon? Obummer sure threw him under the bus!
Blago you damn iPhone auto correct!!
I wonder if he has the goods on Obama and other prominent Democraps....
To be fair and kind.
When he helps Flynn, Manafort and Stone he can say he’s continuing to be fair and kind.
Trump probably thinks that he might win Illinois, if he lets Blagojevich out of prison.
Sorry to hear that,
Not a pardon. His sentence will be reduced.
Stone should spend time in jail just because he’s a big jerk. Maybe 6 months would straighten him out.
Blagojevich was on the Apprentice.
because he was on the apprentice and they are friends and it’s outrageous that Blagojevich goes to jail for 14 years when killers and sex offenders are out walking the streets
WHY??? What’s next is he going to pardon Elliot Spitzer too?
Done deal. Says it’s because it was a Comey group prosecution and sentence was too long.
No, he shouldn’t.
It is not illegal to be a big jerk.
Its not a pardon. Blago is still guilty but will be able to serve a lesser sentence.
