Former Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Wednesday said that President Donald Trump’s pardon of him was an “act of kindness.”
At a press conference following his release from prison, Blagojevich repeatedly praised the president.
“I’m a Trumpocrat,” the former governor said. “If I have the ability to vote, I’m going to vote for him. I don’t know if they’ll allow me to vote.”
“He’s the one that’s fighting to bring real change,” he added. “That’s why he gets so much pushback. He’s also a man with a kind heart. He’s sees wrong and he tries to right it.”

German police identify ‘murder’ suspect in Madeleine McCann case
Police revealed Wednesday they have identified a new suspect in the disappearance of British girl Madeleine McCann in 2007, saying the 43-year-old German man with a history of child sex abuse may have killed her.
The suspect, who was not named, is serving a "long prison sentence" for an unrelated matter, said Germany's federal criminal agency.
He has previous convictions over child sexual abuse, the agency added.
"In connection with the disappearance of the then three-year-old British girl Madeleine Beth McCann... the Braunschweig public prosecutor's office is investigating a 43-year-old German citizen on suspicion of murder," said federal police in a statement.
‘They don’t understand what it means to be American’: Ex-Pentagon chief blasts White House
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany explained Wednesday that President Donald Trump went to St. John's Church with his Bible because it's what former President George W. Bush did after Sept. 11 and what Winston Churchill did during World War II. The problem, of course, being that protesters demanding an end to police brutality aren't the same as Al-Qaeda or the Nazis and it's police killing unarmed Americans, not Black Lives Matter.
