Attorney Vik Bajaj on whether the President should be inserting himself into the criminal justice system

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – President Trump issued pardons and commutations to 11 white-collar criminals including Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Blagojevich was released from prison Tuesday, hours after President Trump cut short this 14-year prison sentence for political corruption.

The president said the punishment imposed on the former contestant on Trump’s reality TV show “Celebrity Apprentice” was excessive.

Attorney & KUSI Contributor Vik Bajaj was in studio to discuss President Trump’s decision and what it means for the criminal justice system.
