Trump Says He’s Mulling Commuting Blagojevich Sentence

President Donald Trump said Thursday he’s considering commuting the sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. “Eighteen years is, I think, really unfair,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force one, adding that Blagojevich was convicted “for being stupid and saying things that every other politician, you know that many other politicians say.” Trump’s comments came just a few days after Blagojevich, who is serving a 14-year sentence for corruption charges, penned an op-ed saying he was “in prison for practicing politics.” “I am seriously thinking about — not pardoning — but I am seriously thinking of a curtailment of Blagojevich,” said Trump.
