President Trump spoke out about commuting the 14-year sentence of Rod Blagojevich today. He explained that the former Illinois governor had served a long 8 years in jail. President Trump felt his sentence was aggressive and felt he’d served his time for trying to sell Obama’s Senate seat.

He mentioned the former Illinois governor’s wife and children and how they only got to see him in prison.

The president also mentioned that the prosecutors in the case were known to be heavy-handed and gave Blagojevich a “ridiculous sentence”…
