Blagojevich Supporters Hold New Hope for an Early Release

We speak one-on-one with Mark Vargas, a spokesman for the family of former Governor Rod Blagojevich about their efforts to have the former governor release early from federal prison.

Blagojevich has now served seven years and eight months of a 14 year sentence. But his family and others hold out hope that President Trump will consider a commutation of his sentence. Trump as a private citizen in 2012 argued that Blagojevich got a sentence that was too harsh. Trump also knows Blago when the former governor appeared on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” program during the time between his impeachment and going to federal prison.

Vargas, who has worked as a civilian in the Bush administration’s Dept of Defense, now speaks for the Blagojevich family. He shares why he says they are hopeful the President will act to release Rod Blagojevich and keep the former governor from serving six more years in prison.
