Governor Rod Blagojevich Shares his Side of the Story

Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich sits down with Matt to discuss his side of the case that sent him to prison for 8 years.

Convicted of trying to sell President Barack Obama’s senate seat, Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years in a maximum-security prison for a white-collar crime. 8 years into serving time, his sentence was commuted in February by President Trump.

Now, Blagojevich is sharing his side of the story in–what he says–was a political hit job. Plus, you’ll hear what he did to occupy his time while he was behind bars. 

The former governor is still a Democrat, but considers himself a “Trumpocrat” after seeing what the Trump administration went through to secure his release. 

This hour-long intimate conversation gets at the heart of who governor Blagojevich is, was, and hopes to be again.
