Trump frees Rod Blagojevich from prison years early, commuting the ex-Illinois governor’s 14-year sentence

President Donald Trump commuted the 14-year sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, springing the Chicago Democrat from prison over four years early and writing a stunning final chapter to one of the state’s most notorious corruption cases.

The controversial move comes after he granted a full pardon to former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. Tuesday and more than a year after Trump first revealed he was considering commuting Blagojevich’s sentence.
