(Chicago, IL) — Governor Rauner is sidestepping the question of whether President Trump should grant clemency to former governor Rod Blagojevich. Rauner says he has nothing to add to the debate over a commutation of Blagojevich’s 14-year sentence for corruption. He says the case has been reviewed by multiple judges in multiple courts and they’ve all decided that Blagojevich is where he belongs and should stay there. Attorneys for Blagojevich have now filed paperwork to formally ask President Trump for clemency, which he says he’s considering.
