Blagojevich's Wife: Russia Probe Is 'Deja Vu All Over Again' With Mueller, Comey, Fitzgerald
Patti Blagojevich, wife of imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), said on "The Ingraham Angle" that she sees "deja vu all over again" with the probe into President Donald Trump.
Ingraham pointed out that the same prosecutorial figures present in Blagojevich’s husband's corruption case – then-FBI Director Robert Mueller, then-FBI official James Comey and then-U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald -- are also linked to the probe into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia.
Blagojevich said her husband is likely the first official to be convicted of extortion and bribery without actually taking a bribe, but for asking for campaign contributions.
"Comey, Fitzgerald and Mueller used out-of-control prosecutors. FBI agents came after my husband with their unchecked power to undo an election by the people," Blagojevich said, drawing similarities between the two cases.
Blagojevich said the trio are "politically-motivated opportunists."
While Comey's and Mueller's roles in the Trump probe are clear to the public, Ingraham said Fitzgerald has been retained by Comey as legal counsel.
Gov. Blagojevich's attorney Len Goodman told Ingraham that the governor was prosecuted "based on political acts."
Ingraham added that there are also similarities to the case against former Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell (R).
