A hearing will be held this morning in Chicago to determine if former Governor Rod Blagojevich will be able to keep his law license. The ex-state leader may lose his privilege to practice law in Illinois. There is no word on whether Blagojevich will appear at the hearing or not. He was released from prison last week after President Trump commuted his sentence. Blagojevich’s license has been suspended since 2011. The Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission will hold the hearing seeking to disbar the former governor.
