    Harris: Obama knew of Blagojevich plot

    A top aide to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich said he believed Barack Obama knew of Blagojevich's plot to win himself a presidential Cabinet post in exchange for appointing Valerie Jarrett to the U.S. Senate.

    John Harris, Blagojevich's former chief of staff, testified Wednesday in the former governor's corruption trial that three days after the Nov. 4, 2008, presidential election, the ex-governor told Harris he felt confident Obama knew he wanted to swap perks.

    "Believed" and "felt confident" doesn't sound like proof of knowledge.

    This should be moved to breaking news...

    No comment other than it is damning. Harris is testifying under a plea bargain agreement.
    Judge approves Blago aide's plea deal | abc7chicago.com
    Almost immediately after his arrest last December, Harris began cooperating with federal prosecutors. His plea agreement - approved by a judge Wednesday - provides a window into the most sensational aspect of the United States of America vs. Rod Blagojevich.

    As Rod Blagojevich's former chief of Staff, John Harris was with his boss - or at least on the phone with him - every day.

    The fact that he is testifying under a 'plea bargain agreement' should tell everyone that he will embellish the facts,
    Thus far, nothing he has said could possibly be used against anyone.

    Blago got arrested. Was there something else that Obama should have done?
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Funny, I would have thought otherwise, that he would be cautious not to embellish for fear of losing whatever deal he's cut.

    I agree, to date there is nothing that could be used against Obi, but public opinion is a court too.

    In your world, no. In the real world, if he was aware of the felony, and didn't report it, he should be prosecuted. But I bet you'll never admit that law exists.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Who says he didn't report it?
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    I'll say this as plainly as I can...

    If there is evidence that proves that Pres. Obama was aware of some type of illegal, unethical political favors swap, he should be impeached. Until then, all we have is hear-say.
