Hey isnt this the same guy who said this: "I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so I was not aware of what was happening," . So I am guessing that that statement wasnt quite enough for the Federal Prosecutors? Sheesh this guy isnt even in office and he is apparently involved in high crimes and misdemeanors. Billy Clinton must be so envious
Obama Interviewed In Blagojevich Probe President-elect, two aides quizzed last week by federal prosecutors
DECEMBER 23–President-elect Barack Obama and two of his top advisers were interviewed last week by federal prosecutors probing Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s alleged bid to sell Obama’s vacated Senate seat, according to a report issued today by an Obama lawyer. The lawyer, Gregory Craig, concluded that Obama and his aides engaged in no improper conduct in connection with the Senate opening. A copy of the Craig report can be found below.
As part of his review of transition team "contacts" with Blagojevich, Craig reported that only incoming White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel had spoke with the Illinois pol. Emanuel, Craig disclosed, had "one or two telephone calls" with Blagojevich in early-November. Emanuel reportedly gave Blagojevich a "heads up" that he was accepting Obama’s offer of the chief of staff job (and, as a result, would be resigning his congressional seat).
Emanuel also "had a brief discussion with the Governor about the Senate seat and the merits of various people whom the Governor might consider." Craig also noted that Emanuel had "about four telephone conversations with John Harris, Chief of Staff to the Governor, on the subject of the Senate seat.
In these conversations, Mr. Emanuel and Mr. Harris discussed the merits of potential candidates and the strategic benefit that each candidate would bring to the Senate seat." Obama Interviewed In Blagojevich Probe – December 23, 2008
So KHAQ on November 5th reports of a upcoming Obama Blagojevich meeting to discuss the Senate seat. The TV Station on November 8th reports that the meeting went well. I cannot link to those stories directly because after the LightWorker announces that he has had NO contact with Blago the stories are scrubbed from the news site and from Google. Now you see it now you dont journalism.
November 23 his top advisor David Axelrod says this on Fox News:
"I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them."
Then after the Blago arrest all of a sudden Axelrod announces a few weeks later that he was mistaken, Obama never met with Blago. Okey Dokey
Then December 11th we here this:
CHICAGO President-elect Barack Obama pledged Thursday to disclose any interaction between his transition team and the office of besieged Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich of Illinois, while declaring again that he and his staff had no involvement in deal-making over an appointment to his vacated Senate seat.
Now on December 23 with Rahm going to Africa and the LightWorker vacationing in Hawaii at his 9 million dollar home we find out that Rahm talked to Blago about the Senate Seat and he talked to John Harris, Blago Chief of Staff and also indicted along with Blago, several times. And they were discussing the Senate Seat and what sort of strategic benefit each candidate would bring to the Senate Seat. Gosh nothing going on here
Now we find out that Federal Prosecutors are interviewing the President-Elect yea nothing to see here.
