Patrick Fitzgerald Asks for Delay in Release of Obama Review. Why?

By John W. Lillpop


In a shocking departure from "politics as usual," President-elect Barack Obama announced that a review by his lawyer, Gregory Craig, found that Obama had no direct contact with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich about the sale of his Senate seat, made vacant as a result of Obama's purchase of the U.S. presidency.

In another stunning development, Obama reported that his due diligence obsessed lawyer also found no evidence that Obama's transition aides did anything inappropriate; legal advisers were found to be especially clean.

It had been widely speculated by know it all pundits that Obama's obsession with CHANGE might cause him to do something really obscene, like actually telling the truth, an unheard of practice among Illinois politicians, especially those raised in the truth-adverse environment of Chicago politics.

Obama promised to make the review public at a later, unspecified date. He claims to have held off because prosecutors asked for a delay and "I don't want to interfere with an ongoing investigation."

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald released a statement confirming the request.

Interesting intrigue seems to be in play here.

If Obama and his minions are really clean, why would Fitzgerald request a delay in the release of an internal review?

Possible answer: Rahm Emanuel, Obama's chief of staff.

Rumors about Emanuel are abundant and Obama added to the rumor mill by refusing to answer questions directly about his chief of staff.

Emanuel has kept his own foul mouth shut for nearly a week, which is good for America's children, but not much help to right-wing zealots looking to derail the Obama Express before the White House is taken over by socialists and communists in training.

Meanwhile, Obama is working diligently to avoid being arrested prior to January 20th, the date upon which he is to be sworn into office, and endowed with the Constitutional power to grant pardons, perhaps even to himself.
