Rod Blagojevich: Arresting Donald Trump Would Be ‘Banana Republic’ Politics 


Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) has spoken out against reports that the Manhattan attorney general’s office is preparing to arrest former President Donald Trump, arguing that arresting a former president would lead to a “banana republic policy.”

Blagojevich “Arresting presidents and governors for fabricated crimes is the policy of a banana republic” He said.

He also said our republic has not been in this much danger since the beginning of the Civil War and insisted that the prosecutors investigating Trump are the “real insurgents.”

“Not since S. Carolina fired shots at Ft. Sumter has our Republic been in such peril” Blagojevich added. “Armed prosecutors who use the power entrusted to them to target people on the basis of politics, with impunity, are the true rebels of our time.”

They are destroying what Lincoln called the last best hope for freedom on earth. Americans of all parties must oppose this #politicaloppression chirp.

Blagojevich’s statement comes amid speculation that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a George Soros financier, will arrest Trump next week amid an investigation into Trump for his alleged role in silent payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump warned Saturday of “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office showing he would be arrested on Tuesday.

Blagojevich’s reference to the arrest of “Hakams” could be a reference to himself. The former governor was sentenced to 14 years in prison after he tried to sell the US Senate seat vacated by former Senator Barack Obama after he was elected president in 2008.

However, after serving more than seven years in prison, Trump commuted Blagojevich’s sentence. Trump said, at the time, that Blagojevich was being prosecuted by “the same people, Comey, Fitzpatrick, the same group” that prosecuted him.
