Blagojevich spotted at prison as Trump mulls pardon

That thatch of now silver hair belongs to the former governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich.

He was seen exercising outdoors on Sunday at the federal prison in Littleton, Colorado...but this may be the last summer the disgraced politician remains a prisoner.

Seven years into a 14 years sentence, President Trump is indicating he may pardon him.

Blagojevich was convicted in 2008 on a variety of federal corruption charges, including trying to trade Barack Obama's then U-S Senate seat for personal gain.

In 2008, before starting his sentence, Blagojevich told reporters that he was disappointed with the court's ruling.

"I frankly am stunned there's not much left to say other than than we want to get home to our little girls" Trump has tweeted that many people have asked that he study the possibility of commuting Blagojevich's sentence.

If the President agrees to the pardon, Blagojevich, the one time political star, will be able to go home again.
