Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich recently spoke with Breitbart News about former President Donald Trump's indictment and the political establishment's targeting of him. Blagojevich, who was himself a victim of political persecution, shared his insights into why he believes the establishment is going after Trump.
Blagojevich argued that Trump is being targeted because he refuses to do things their way, stating that "the establishment doesn't like outsiders." He also discussed his own experiences with political imprisonment, saying that he was used as a "test case" before the establishment tried to jail a former president.
The former governor went on to say that he expects those who are turned off by the case against Trump will provide insight for him as someone who has been persecuted politically. He believes that this will help Trump in his legal battle against the establishment.
Blagojevich's comments come at a time when many are questioning whether or not there is an all-out assault on conservative voices in America. Some have pointed out how social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook have moved to silence conservative voices while allowing left-leaning ones free reign.
With tensions running high in America, it remains to be seen what impact these developments will have on future elections and politics more broadly. However, one thing is clear - politicians like Rod Blagojevich continue to serve as important voices for those who feel marginalized by the status quo.
