Sen. Barack Obama's denial last week that neither he nor his campaign had had any discussions with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has changed. Reminiscent of Al Gore's "no controlling legal authority" line comes word that Obama's campaign did talk with Balgojevich, but there were "no inappropriate discussions." The exact nature of the discussions will have to wait, because prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has apparently requested it.
“The US Attorney's office requested the public release of the Transition review be deferred until the week of December 22, in order not to impede their investigation of the governor,” Pfeiffer says in a statement, “The Transition has agreed to this revised timetable for release.”
Obama and his family will be in Hawaii on vacation during the time of the investigation’s release.
Watch me predict the report's release: 6 p.m. EST, Dec. 24th.
