The big pain in the ass organization Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit to get ahold of some records about the FBI interviews from way back when Obama was just the President-Elect.

The records have to do with the now convicted Illinois Governor at the time, Mr. Hot Rod Blagojevich.

Blagojevich was convicted of corruption in connection with attempting to "sell" the vacant U.S. Senate seat left wide open when Obama was elected President in 2008.

Apparently the FBI was investigating and interviewed Obama, Rahm Emanuel, and Valerie Jarrett. (can't imagine why those 3 would know anything about Chicago political corruption?)

JD was denied a FOIA request back in 2012.

Evidently there are some conflicts about weather or not Obama had contact with Blagojevich.

Obama denied any contact, but some new info shows he actually did !!! (no surprise)

Looks like JD is doing their part in this year's elections.



Judicial Watch Sues for Obama FBI Interview Records


Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia seeking FBI interview records of then-President-elect Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, and Valerie Jarrett. Obama and his aides were interviewed as part of the initial investigation of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who was sentenced to fourteen years in federal prison for attempting to sell Obama’s vacated Senate seat (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No 1:16-cv-00576)).

.....
On December 18, 2008, about a week after Blagojevich’s arrest, then-President-elect Barack Obama was questioned at his Chicago transition office by two assistant United States attorneys and two FBI agents for 2 hours about the scandal surrounding the alleged sale of the Senate seat he vacated in 2008. Judicial Watch is seeking the FBI summaries from this interview.

In January 2009, Judicial Watch released documents from the office of then-Governor Rod Blagojevich related to Blagojevich’s contacts with President-elect Obama and his transition team. The documents include a December 3, 2008, letter from Barack Obama following his December 2, 2008, meeting with Blagojevich as well as a November 17, 2008, letter signed by Presidential Transition Team co-chairs Valerie Jarrett and John Podesta providing Blagojevich with a list of transition team contacts. These documents tend to undermine Obama’s claims that he had no contact with Blagojevich.

Blagojevich was convicted on 17 of the 20 public corruption charges against him, some of which have been vacated. He is not scheduled for release until 2024. The Supreme Court has refused to hear his appeal on the 13 remaining corruption charges. A federal judge has scheduled Blagojevich to be resentenced on June 30, 2016.

Good. If nothing else comes of this, perhaps it is a move to get the spotlight on the issue and to prevent Obama from presenting the imprisoned ex-governor with a pardon as he leaves office. Frankly, I suspect that is what this new issue is really about.

Crazy how we have managed life for possibly millions of years without government, taxes, or bogus laws.

Then corruption steps in and dominates fellow man, who is good naturally.

Government, politics, banking is the cancer that rots our consciousness and the very earth we live for.
