Rauner believes early release for Blagojevich is a bad idea

Former Governor Rod Blagojevich hopes to hear you're freed, instead of you're fired from President Trump. He has made it official, filing paperwork asking President Trump to bring his 14 year corruption prison sentence to an early end. He submitted paperwork to the Justice Department, seeking relief from the President, who previously worked with him on NBC's Celebrity Apprentice. The man who currently sits in Blagojevich's old office thinks that's a bad idea. Governor Bruce Rauner believes there's strong evidence early release isn't called for...


Blagojevich is part of Rauner's general election campaign strategy. Rauner has rolled out a new campaign ad featuring wiretapped audio from conversations between Blagojevich and his gubernatorial opponent J.B. Pritzker.
