Obama performs a thorough investigation of himself, finds himself innocent of wrong doing

Let me preface this post by saying I don’t necessarily believe Obama had anything to do with Blagojevich’s trying to sell his Senate seat. As far as I’m concerned, he’s innocent until proven guilty. But I just read an article on MSNBC that Obama’s team performed an internal review and found that Obama had nothing to do with it.

Seriously? Does that really count as an investigation? Of course his own internal review is going to find that he didn’t do anything wrong. Let an independent investigator perform a review of what the Obama team may or may not have done with regards to Blagojevich, and then I’ll believe the results. He may as well have just said “I didn’t do it.” That’s all that the internal investigation amounts to.

Update: Here is another article that makes the Obama team seem a lot more beleivable. Why didn’t they say that in the first place? Knowing that they met with actual investigators lends more credibility to the claim that they did nothing wrong.
