Patrick Fitzgerald University of Chicago Law School, National security law program course, Obama Senior Lecturer, Corruption comes full circle
“Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, Governor of IL, prosecuted before Tony Rezko, a businessman?”…Citizen Wells
“Why did Colin Powell allow Patrick Fitzgerald to be pulled away from the Blagojevich prosecution?”…Citizen Wells
“Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, the Governor of Illinois, wiretapped at least by 2005 when it was known in 2003 that there was widespread corruption in his administration?”…Citizen Wells
Get involved in Chicago and Illinois corruption and apparently you are a shoe in for a job at the University of Chicago Law School.
From The National Law Journal March 6, 2013.
“University of Chicago lands Fitzgerald for teaching job”
“Patrick Fitzgerald, the high-profile former U.S. attorney, is heading
to the University of Chicago Law School.
He has been named the inaugural Feirson Distinguished Lecturer at the
school and will teach one course per year, beginning with a national
security law program this spring.
“Pat Fitzgerald is one of the most respected and skilled attorneys of
his generation,” dean Michael Schill said. “No one has done more to
bring honor to the legal profession—especially in Chicago—than Pat.
His unimpeachable ethics, his extraordinary brilliance and his
astounding work ethic make him one of the finest public servants this
country has ever known.”
Fitzgerald joined Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom as a partner in
October following a decade as the U.S. attorney for the Northern
District of Illinois. In that post, he oversaw the successful
corruption prosecutions of former Illinois governors Rod Blagojevich
and George Ryan. As a special prosecutor in the Valerie Plame leak
case, he secured the conviction of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, an aide to
former Vice President Dick Cheney, on counts including obstruction of
justice and perjury.”
Patrick Fitzgerald is either clueless, biased and/or corrupt.
Fitzgerald aggressively prosecuted Republican Governor of Illinois George Ryan and then aggressively attacked Scooter Libby and Karl Rove, unjustly, and with the knowledge by Colin Powell and others that they were innocent of the leak in the Valerie Plame case.
All the while Fitzgerald delayed the prosecution of Rod Blagojevich until after the 2008 election.
Barack Obama was a Senior Lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School.
The new Citizen Wells question that begs an answer is:
“Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, the Governor of Illinois, wiretapped at least by 2005 when it was known in 2003 that there was widespread corruption in his administration?”
