Luckily for the ILGOP and Eastern Bloc,Trump appears to have pulled back. Their narrative of corrupt Chicago Democrats would have imploded, if Trump released the most corrupt Democrat from prison. He did share martyrdom with Blago, saying he was treated very unfairly.

Whatever your opinion as the fairness to length of his sentence, what Trump is doing by repeatedly dangling possible freedom out there is outright cruelty to Blago and his family.
I try not to react strongly to what Trump might do. I have enough problems with what he actually does.
Early release should require Blago to accept a lifetime ban on being in radio or television. Violation puts him back in prison.
I remember listening to Blago on WLS spewing hate and lies. He claimed Governor Quinn was lazy and still sleeping. During the Gold Star Mother’s Ceremony, which started a few minutes later, a priest mentioned how Quinn had been to early mass. So much for sleeping in.
Blago was Trump lite. Keep him caged or let him free, but keep him silent.
