Why Did FBI, U.S. Government Protect Candidate #5, Jesse Jackson, Jr. in Blagojevich Scandal?

By Debbie Schlussel
ABC News is reporting that Candidate #5, in the indictment of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, is Son of Jesse a/k/a Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. As I’ve repeatedly written on this site, Jesse, Jr. was likely to get the seat, though I didn’t know it was because he agreed to pay to play. I’m not surprised though.

According to the FBI affidavit in the case, Blagojevich “stated he might be able to cut a deal with Senate Candidate 5 that provided ROD BLAGOJEVICH” with something “tangible up front.”
Jackson Jr. said this morning he was contacted yesterday by federal prosecutors in Chicago who he said “asked me to come in and share with them my insights and thoughts about the selection process.”
Jackson Jr. said “I don’t know” when asked if he was Candidate #5, but said he was told “I am not a target of this investigation.”



Like Father, Like Son: Jesse Jackson, Sr. & Jr. a/k/a “Candidate #5”

Oh, he knows he’s Candidate #5, just as sure as Gov. Elliot Spitzer knew he was Client #9.

Jackson Jr. said he agreed to talk with federal investigators “as quickly as possible” after he consults with a lawyer. . . .
“It is impossible for someone on my behalf to have a conversation that would suggest any type of quid pro quo or any payments or offers,” Jackson Jr. told ABC News. “An impossiblity to an absolute certainty.”


“Senate Candidate #5” played a key role in the Governor’s efforts to obtain something of value in exchange for the Senate appointment, according to the FBI affidavit.

And neither is Reader/Blogger There is NO Santa Claus. He and his wife grew up in Chicago, and he repeats the trite but true, “Timing is Everything.”
In this case, TINSC questions why the FBI pounced on Blagojevich before Candidate #5 a/k/a Jesse, Jr. got his meeting and the chance to take action and provide more incriminating evidence that he was prepared to undertake the bribery. TINSC says the feds are protecting Jesse, Jr., and I agree–it sure looks that way. Why wasn’t Jesse, Jr. arrested and indicted, too?

Well… it seems that the very NEXT scheduled interview for the vacated U.S. Senate seat was none other than Jessie Jackson Jr. Jr. has kept his nose clean in Chicago politics for 12 years as a Congressman; an admirable record, I might add.
With the Feds wiretapping Gov. B’s solicitations for money in exchange for the appointment, Jessie Jr. would have become dirtied up in the affair.
Who knows! Maybe Jessie might even break and offer to pay up with the tape recorder on.
With a new boss coming to Washington D.C. any Chicago-based FBI agent knows he must prevent this; especially if he/she thinks Jessie Jr. is the new President’s favorite to fill his old job. That is why the FBI acted yesterday.

Look for Son of Jesse to get away with it, just like daddy always does. Justice isn’t blind at all. Our federal justice system sees things through very tinted, politically correct glasses.
Sleaze is an inherited gene in the Jackson family tree. Sadly, the FBI forgot the “I” when it came to Son of Jesse and prematurely pulled the plug on the surveillance. Deliberately.

One would think that Fitzgerald would want to get to the bottom of this even if he had to go all the way to the top.
Fitzgerald is garbage.

Fitzgerald is the same guy who politicized the Libby affair, and didn’t go after the real culprits, Powell & Armitage. And of course, nothing happens in Illinois without Daley’s knowledge. I can understand how Obama wouldn’t know anything about this though. After all, during 20 years, he didn’t realize what Rev. Wright was saying, and the current governor was only around 5 years. It would have taken 16 additional years for Obama to figure out what was going on. And all the other crooked politicians, illegal aliens, etc. etc. running around that the FBI does nothing about.

I think there is enough on Jesse “Shakedown” Jr for him to spend a few years in jail. At least his political career will be ruined. He can always be re-elected on the south side of Chicago, look at Marion Barry and William Jefferson of Louisiana. Convicted and corrupted their constituents will just say they are victims of racism.
I think Fitzgerald had to pull the trigger. It was leaked that Blagojevich was being tapped and monitored. From there evidence will be destroyed and Blagojevich would change his pick. I want to see Rahm Emanuel brought in and other Chicago cronies. Hopefully when that noose feels tighter around Rezko, Blagojevich, and Jesse, they see the “almighty” HUSSEIN COBRAMA get coronated KING, jealousy and revenge kicks in and they throw him under the bus. I really see Blagojevich throwing COBRAMA under the bus. “MOTHER FU****”!!! His soul has been exposed.
Fitzgerald has to keep his position after the election. There is no way COBRAMA can pull him off the case with the cloud hanging over. The world is watching. Rezko gets sentenced Jan. 6, this brought down Blagojevich and Jackson and hopefully COBRAMA.
I am thinking one song right now about Jackson and Blagojevich, “King Nothing” by Metallica.
Careful what you wish
Careful what you say
Careful what you wish
You may regret it
Careful what you wish
You just might get it
Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there’s no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle’s crumbled
And you’re left with just a name
Where’s your crown, King Nothing?
Hopefully it will be played for KING HUSSEIN COBRAMA soon.
