Secret papers reveal Senate 'talks' between Obama and Blagojevich?

Didn't Obama say he didn't talk to Blago?
WASHINGTON -- Sections of court papers filed by scandal-scarred former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich that were mistakenly made public show a deeper involvement by President Obama in picking his Senate successor and call into question the president's public statements on the case.

According to passages in the papers filed Thursday by Blagojevich's lawyers -- which were blacked out under a judge's order but made visible by a computer glitch -- Obama, then president-elect, spoke directly to the disgraced governor on Dec. 1, 2008.

But just one week later -- on the day Blagojevich was indicted -- Obama told reporters flatly, "I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so we were not -- I was not aware of what was happening."

  • They are all liars, my dear. Whatever suits them, they do and then lie about it.

  • The only thing that surprises me about this is the fact that there are still documents that prove it. LOL, I would have figured they were shredded a long time ago.

    This. Someone must be very unhappy with him for that documentation to have survived.

  • Wow. That was some compelling reading. I have to wonder if it will go anywhere (somehow I am doubting it).
