We watched as former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich claimed on the apprentice that when he had his day in court he would be exonerated. Now that trial has started it seems to be getting worse and worse for blogo. The best we can hope is he can dim the shine on the golden one from the white house. Today we got a little closer to that wish. An ex-aide John Harris former chief of staff to Governor Rod Blagojevich testified this week that President Obama knew Blagojevich wanted a plum job in the administration in exchange for appointing a politically palatable person to fill Obama’s vacated Senate seat. The testimony claims that President Obama was well aware that Blagojevich was hopeful to leverage the Senate seat into a cabinet position for himself. Harris told the court Blagojevich believed that if he appointed to the Senate Obama’s longtime friend Valerie Jarrett, Blagojevich would get a top job. The White House has claimed that President Obama had no direct knowledge and communication with emissaries and others regarding the appointment to his Senate seat. The only thing that could make it better if they allowed Blagojevich’s lawyers request to subpoena Obama earlier this year be allowed but Judge Zagel refused to allow it. We can only hope the grilling from Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is worht the wait. As far as Blog goes the more times they release taped conversation the worse he looks and we are not sure what he was talking about when he claimed he would be exonerated.
