Re: It’s Hard To Keep Up

The Obama team will be releasing information regarding its contacts with Blago, but not until the week of December 22, at the request of the U.S. Attorney. Sooner or later it will all come out, provided Blago can’t be forced to plead and all this gets swept under the rug (no hair reference intended). The squeeze will be on by every Democrat as far as the eye can see — get Blago out, have him work out a deal, and have this all wrapped up by Christmas. Will it happen? I’m not so sure — we’re talking Blago here, who no doubt thinks the jury will love him.
