The governor appeared to have laid the groundwork on Friday for what his defense will be should he ever stand trial in the ongoing federal investigation that snared Tony Rezko.
“I have a theory on what happened in the Rezko situation,” he said, according to the Sun-Times. “A system, you know, sucked him in and then some lines were crossed and then that person found himself actually violating some of the rules.”
So, you know, Rezko was just sucked in to a system. Poor guy. And then lines were crossed. He found himself actually violating rules. The passivity is killing me.
“Nothing I ever did ever crossed the line,” Blagojevich added.
And that’s what I bet he’ll say under oath.
