Obama has lied, and the White House is trying to cover it up! Obama said he had no contact with Blagojevich, and even that he “was not aware of what was happening.”
This is a blatant lie considering that it has been revealed in the Blagojevich case that Obama called a local union leader the day before the election to get him to communicate with Blagojevich about his favorite pick for Senate, Valerie Jarrett.
Now the White House is trying to cover it up and refusing to answer about it, hoping that the mass media will forget it and pass it by.
Don’t let this be passed by! Obama has lied. Get the word out and forward this page and video to anyone you know who is concerned about America’s future.
This is a transcript and video of the White House Press Briefing from 6-29-10. The White House refuses to answer about allegations that Obama communicated with Blagojevich through a middleman, which formerly had been denied by Obama.
Watch the video and Comment Below
MR.GIBBS: Yes, Ann.
Q Tom Balanoff is a local labor leader in Chicago and in testimony today at the Blagojevich trial he talks about a phone call that he got from Barack Obama on Monday evening before the Tuesday election, at which he quotes Mr. Obama as saying that he thinks Valerie Jarrett should be a United States senator, that she fits the criteria; “I would prefer that she remain working for President Obama, but she does want to be Senator.” And Balanoff said he told the soon-to-be President, “I said, ‘Thank you, I’m going to reach out to Governor Blagojevich with that.’” Did the President make that phone call?
MR. GIBBS: You’re telling me about this testimony. I’m not going to get into commenting on obviously an ongoing trial. And I have had not had an opportunity to see that.
Q But you’ve said before that the President did not get involved with the suggestions or the conversations with Blagojevich.
MR. GIBBS: Ann, I’m just not going to get into commenting on an ongoing trial.
