Skip to comments.Mediaite Exclusive: Censored Portions of Blago Subpoena May Implicate Team Obama
Posted on 04/22/2010 1:14:12 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
Today in United States v. Rod Blagojevich: following up on his 2008 claims that then-Senator Barack Obama was one of a few people who could testify to his innocence, his defense team issued a motion today to subpoena the President to testify in court. Most of the juiciest bits involving Obamas role in choosing a new Senator are blacked out, or so we thought. It turns a lucky PDF glitch gave us VIP access. Who wouldnt want to see the blacked out part? Lets investigate!
Most of the non-blacked out portions of the motion are predictably tame general knowledge: the seat in dispute belonged to the President; the FBI did speak with the President about this case at some point in time. A labor union official close to the President (who may be SEIU President Andy Stern) is said to contradict public statements on the case by Obama directly. The credibility of money man Tony Rezko being crucial to the case, the defense would like the President to testify about it. The defense also spends significant amount of time bringing up previous cases of sitting presidents being subpoenaed to testify in relevant cases. What the defense didnt want you to see is the allegation that an Obama supporter offered Blagojevich fundraising in exchange for the seat. In other words: Blagojevich didnt try to sell the seat; an Obama supporter tried to buy it.

It’s just an allegation which any good lawyer can bury under tons of obfuscation.
You're 100% correct, because it's already happened.
Blago's trial starts on June 3, 2010 and Obama rescheduled his trip to Indonesia to June.
I don’t think the Kenyan would answer any summons from any court however legally or Constitutionally required it may be. He will just say “I won” and refuse.
Let me help them out.
Obama Testify in court?
Not going to happen. Next question
I hope this story doesn’t peak too soon. This drip-drip-drip surely will help drive Obama’s ratings steadily more negative, but if any bombshells are to come out, it would be nice if it were closer to election time.
This site claims to have a leaked, unredacted version of the defense’s motion to subpoena Obama. I don’t know if it’s real or fake. (Haven’t read it yet.)
Someone’s going to spill the beans in a plea bargain for immunity.
Who will be the first?
The first one always gets the best deal, you know.
First of all the judge has already ruled that most of the evidence will never be heard.
Which is a moot point. Just like birth records and college transcripts - Obama has sent any and all damning evidence against him to the cornfield.
Ain’t no way Blago - which knows the truth which could impeach Obammie - can bring any of it to the light of day.
Unless someone is really, really p’od at the Bamster and has the connections and power to do that....
Can you say Lady Pantsuits????
Well, we still have the remaining ACORN sting videos from Breitbart to forward to. Breitbart promises to release them come election time if Holder doesn’t investigate ACORN. He says they all the way to the top.
Two words: Presidential Pardon.
For example, here's ALL of Para. 9 & 10 on page 2:
9. Yet, despite President Obama stating that no representatives of his had any part of any deals, labor union president told the FBI and the United States Attorneys that he spoke to labor union official on November 3, 2008 who received a phone message from Obama that evening. After labor union official listened to the message labor union official told labor union president Im the one. Labor union president took that to mean that labor union official was to be the one to deliver the message on behalf of Obama that Senate Candidate B was his pick. (Labor union president 302, February 2, 2009, p. 7).
10. Labor union official told the FBI and the United States Attorneys Obama expressed his belief that [Senate Candidate B] would be a good Senator for the people of Illinois and would be a candidate who could win re-election. [Labor union official] advised Obama that [labor union official] would reach out to Governor Blagojevich and advocate for [Senate Candidate B].. . . [Labor union official] called [labor union president] and told [labor union president] that Obama was aware that [labor union official] would be reaching out to Blagojevich. (Labor union official 302, February 3, 2009 p. 3).
“Blago’s trial starts on June 3, 2010 and Obama rescheduled his trip to Indonesia to June.”
Interesting! Could he be going to Thailand to avoid a tsunami in DC?
Stern... I believe it’s why he “resigned”. All speculation, but Rezko is already facing time with his fraud conviction. With Emmanuel stating he wants to be Chicago’s mayor I think the Daley Machine has now decided that Obama isn’t that wonderful of a guy after all... Watch for Rahm to be the next one “under the bus”.
PS — Sounds like all the rumors the Chicagoan PUMAs were speaking of back right before the election may actually bear fruit after all. Blago is NOT going to go down alone, if he goes down he will take everyone he can with him — count on it...
Mayhap the O-bot gets to boot?
Is Joe Biden his time? Well, at least he's well rested!
Is it too much to hope that perhaps he will stay there and Air Force 1 comes back without him? What are the extradition laws between the US and Indonesia like - out of curiosity. Will Obama claim political asylum while in Indonesia??? [Yeah, I know... wishful thinking on my part]
