Obama on Governor Blagojevich/Rahm Emanuel
Judicial Watch's President Tom Fitton wrote:
The Blagojevich scandal is not going to go away. The Chicago Tribune reported last Saturday that "communications between [incoming White House Chief of Staff Rahm] Emanuel and the Blagojevich administration were captured on court-approved wiretaps." Moreover, it appears Emanuel, at Obama's urging, presented Blagojevich's representatives with a list of preferred Senate appointees.
Of course, neither Obama nor Emanuel are commenting on any of this, hiding behind the old "I'm not going to comment on an ongoing investigation" line. Obama even told one reporter who dared ask about the scandal earlier this week "don't waste your question." (You can watch the video here and below.) So much for openness, integrity and transparency. More information may be dumped over Christmas, so stay alert.
