Federal Sources: Fitzgerald Held Off Blagojevich Bust to Protect Obama Election Chances; Did Obama Fail Ethics Requirements of Illinois Bar?
A federal source of mine with ties to Chicago says that FBI agents had enough to prosecute corrupt, helmet-haired Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich back in June, when he was already engaged in some of the blackmail and extortion alleged by the FBI affidavit and other documents associated with his arrest and prosecution.
The source says that the FBI was suddenly ordered by the U.S. Attorney's Office--and I believe that order came from the top, ie., U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald and Justice Department officials in Washington--to hold off on doing anything until after the election, so as not to hurt Obama's White House bid. Here's what my inside source says.
I know for a fact FBI Chicago had enough to indict Blagojevich in June. They were 2 weeks from indictment in June based on cooperation and testimony at the Stu Levine trial. Levine was Tony Rezko's bud, fund raiser for Blago, and our President-Elect...http://www.debbieschlussel.com/

Armitage must have photos of Fitz with a goat.
I just can not understand why Pres. Bush will not just support our conservative policy? He is going to get skewered no mater what he does from the left and at the same time piss off the conservatives and republicans once again for taking the liberal view.
At lease if he stood up for us, the right, 50 percent of the nation would be satisfied in stead of 100 percent being angry.
I agree. If he had just stood up and fought back, people would have come out to support him. But it’s very hard to support someone who’s not fighting back in the first place. Very sad, and I pray for him too.
Plame was NOT a bona fide undercover agent
Rove and Libby did NOT leak anything
Armatage was the LEAKER, with Novak somehow involved.
Yet Fitzgerald let the so called "investigation" go on and on. And who benefited from all this, Why the DemoncRATS, that's who!
How does one get to remain in his position? He gets (re) nominated. His next bss will be Obama?
“Yes we all know that so much more is going on here, and for sure Fitzgerald is protecting somebody.”
He is protecting his job, The O can’t fire him now without it lt looking political. His only client is Fitzgerald. His is the embodiment of most lawyers I know.
MCCAIN shied away from it. MCCAIN chose to campaign on his terms. MCCAIN made that choice for HIS campaign.
Bush didn't have anything to do with it, and nor would it have done McCain any good if he had. Hello? Was Bush supposed to hold press conferences saying Obama is a bad man? Are you loony? Some of the lowest popularity ratings ever for a POTUS...oh yeah.....throw Obama into THAT briar patch!!!! LOL.
Yes it is too late. Yes the Obamamaniacs would've been even more endeared with him had they known this.
Lord, this election was not a fluke. We've been turning out socialist idiots from high school for the past 40 years....this is the product.
This country has had terminal cancer for longer than we can admit. We're in shock and disbelief.
How about pictures of Richard with Patrick pretending to be a goat.
Reminds me of Winston’s job in “1984” — rewriting the old “news” stories to fit the new “facts”.
Talking about the book, 1984 ? I read that in my freshman year of college, been - awhile, lol. Forgot the details.
Articles have been disappearing off the web about Obama since the campaign started. Even his own webpage removed ‘friends of Obama’ and you couldn’t even find it cached in Google. Of course, ‘we’ always manage to find things, lol.
“As for Fitz, sure, he goes after a few Democrat pols when he is told it’s OK to do so, because they’re being thrown off the back of Daley’s sleigh. But he isn’t going to go after the big guys—Daley, Obama, anyone he is warned to lay off of. It was typical that he gave immunity to the real Plame leakers so they could help him get Scooter Libby on a technicality.”
“Its become very obvious that a number of the MSM TV news types, as well as the money hungry crowd at the NYT an the Tribune group, were involved in the graft and corruption side of Obamas election.”
Correct. Also, the big fish like Daley and Obama never do the talking. They send their underlings. Emmanuel and Axelrod probably were the go betweens with Blago. If Blago were a real Chicago pol, he never would have had any conversations about the quid pro quo. He would have had his “people” handle it. That’s the Chicago way...
Calling Captain Obvious! Many of us knew the timing of this arrest could have been a lot earlier, like before Nov.4th.
Obviously those involved in how this went down are protecting Zero. It could have cost him votes, duh!
Who knows if the libtards would have even cared if they knew before voting? Probably not, considering they think abortion is just a “choice”.
It stinks of sabotage by the WH if you ask me. I like Bush and am not much for conspiracies. But this all just stinks.
Exactly, look at gas prices now, look at what they were at election time!!! We are all being MANIPULTED BIGTIME!!!
Add in this HUGE financial crisis!!!
So true, we were one percent of that 40% applying for an FOID card!!!!
Besides SCooter issue, I dont trust people whom the media loves.
By shielding Obama, both Bush and McCain treated the US Presidency like some form of reparations that was overdue to black people .... but it wasn’t theirs to throw
Fitz is protecting RezkObama by making Blago the fall guy.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Wonder if Fitz is going to get a cushy job in the Rezkobama admin? Chicago Prosecuters don’t have to Pay to Play.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Check the explanation at reply #15.
But he wouldn't hold off jumping to conclusions in the Valerie Plame case.
A real unbiased non-partisan, this guy is.
On the first day of Fitzmas Blago was arrested
On the second day of Fitzmas JJ Jr. implicated
On the thrid day of Fitzmas Obama’s team denying
On the fourth day of Fitzmas, Fitz accused of electioneering.
Can barely wait to see what the next day of Fitzmas brings.
You're right - she is great and I have read her many times.
Here is what I am saying:
There is no WAY Obama will lose power, position, or advancement because of what she writes. Ever.
There could be a Video Tape of Obama raping a puppy, and he will take office in January.
The MSM, the lost of this planet (who worship this guy in the percentages approaching 90%), and the clueless of this nation who covet their neighbor's goods will back him no matter what. I sat through 1,000 posts on this board about how the Clinton's were about to drop.
Let me tell you something - Obama and his out of control wife will never fall from any "investigation."
They are supported by the Evil One. (I am not joking).
I believe he is evil, and we God is allowing evil to take a short place in power in the end times.
Take stock of yourself, as I should. I believe the days are short.
If Obama knew of this prior to November and was approached for input on a sale he by rights as a member of the Senate should have turned this over to the FBI. If he knew this after the election, he as President Elect should have notified the FBI that he had been approached regarding a sale of the Illinois Senate Seat.
What I am reading is that all Obama did or said was the governor would receive appreciation.... APPRECIATION BUT NO PAYMENT FOR SELLING HIS SEAT. Appreciation in the form of what? A job or two for his wife? It appears explosive alright!
No ,pray for us, he’ll be fine.We will have to live with passive complicity in the destruction of the nation by the Democrimemediagaymafiathirldworld party
