Reports: Plans To Commute Blago’s Sentence “On Hold”

Rod Blagojevich Sentencing In Corruption Trial

A possible plan to commute the sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is on hold, according to reports which state the White House fears a public pushback.

Pres. Trump last week had Tweeted that "Many people have asked that I study the possibility of commuting his sentence in that it was a very severe one." 


But sources say that Blagojevich made it to processing for his discharge from a federal prison on Thursday, and then everything was put on hold.

The story goes that a Trump administration official became concerned about opposition to the idea.

Blagojevich, a Democrat, has served half of a 14-year sentence for trying to sell the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama when he became president.
