Do you support Trump commuting Rod Blagojevich's sentence?

President Donald Trump, who corruptly attempted to swing the next election in his favor by forcing Ukraine to open investigations into Joe Biden's son, commuted the sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Blagojevich is a man who extorted a children's hospital for campaign donations, attempted to sell former President Barack Obama's vacant senate seat, and attempted to get members of the Chicago Tribune's editorial board fired. Blagojevich is the face of political corruption for many on both sides of the aisle.

However, President Trump believes Blagojevich was wrongfully persecuted, like Trump was, by an FBI led by a rogue James Comey. There is no evidence to suggest this is true. Comey was not involved with the case and was not in a position in the government to interfere or influence the case at the time. Blagojevich's commutation is the latest in a series of questionable pardons. Earlier in his term, Trump pardoned Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher, who was accused of war crimes by his fellow soldiers.
