Washington (eTruePolitics) – R. Kelly for the defense.  Who else do you need?

Kelly, who shares an attorney with jailed former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, is calling on his friend Donald Trump to immediately release Blagojevich who has been incarcerated for seven years, eTruePolitics has learned. R. Kelly also announced that he was producing an album for Blagojevich who is planning a career as an R&B singer when he is “finally” released.

“Blago’s a huge, soulful talent and needs some bucks,” said Kelly in a formal statement. “And just like me he’s not guilty of nothing.”

Kelly is currently being investigated for 40 counts of sex crimes by Federal and state prosecutors.

Trump recently tweeted that he is considering commuting the sentence of Blagojevich currently in prison for soliciting bribes to choose a replacement for President-elect Barack Obama’s Illinois Senate seat .

During his political career Blagojevich, a former Cook County assistant State’s Attorney and Illinois State Assemblyman, had been a strong advocate of tougher sentencing laws, a position, according to R. Kelly the former governor is now reconsidering.

“Blago would be a great new governor,” added Kelly.
