Blagojevich went to jail for 14 years. Obama got OBAMACARE passed. Both manipulated the system. Obama committed the worse offense. Blago went to jail. Here’s how OBAMA and Eric Holder did it.
Guilty verdicts against the Republican Stevens arrived less than two weeks before Election Day in 2008, causing the previously popular Senator to lose a close race to Democrat Mark Begich. Mr. Begich would go on to provide the 60th Senate vote to pass ObamaCare in 2009.
According to the exhaustive study ordered by Judge Emmet Sullivan, government attorneys engaged in “systematic concealment” of “significant exculpatory evidence which would have independently corroborated Senator Stevens’s defense and his testimony, and seriously damaged the testimony and credibility of the government’s key witness.”
Most damaging to Justice’s credibility is that, three years after Judge Sullivan set aside the guilty verdicts against Stevens, the department still hasn’t disciplined the men and women involved.
