An early morning knock on the door changed Robert Blagojevich’s life forever. Authorities presented him with a subpoena demanding campaign documents. What started as an investigation turned into an indictment. Among the many alleged charges was attempting to sell Barack Obama’s Senate seat after the 2008 presidential election. Suddenly, Robert was fighting for his freedom along with his brother former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

In this episode of Lawyer 2 Lawyer, hosts J. Craig Williams and Bob Ambrogi interview Robert Blagojevich. Together they discuss they his experiences with the FBI and U.S. Attorneys Office as well as his new book “Fundraiser A: My Fight for Justice and Freedom”. Tune in to hear about his million dollar legal fight to save his name and stay out of prison.

Robert Blagojevich is the brother of Rod Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois. In June 2010, he went on trial along with his brother and was charged with several felonies. In August of the same year, the jury was unable to reach a decision and subsequently the government dropped its charges against him. Since then, he has resumed his life and speaks to groups about his experience.
