(BREITBART) – President Donald Trump once again said he is leaning toward pardoning former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D).
The president told a pool reporter on Wednesday that he thought the Illinois Democrat convicted on corruption charges had been mistreated, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.
"I thought he was treated unbelievably unfairly," Trump reportedly said. "He was given close to 18 years in prison. And a lot of people thought it was unfair, like a lot of other things – and it was the same gang, the Comey gang and all these sleazebags that did it. And his name is Rod Blagojevich."
