U.S. Sen. Burris' lawyer Timothy Wright, told the Sun-Times Saturday his client is
not a target of federal authorities.
"I know for a fact that he's not a target of any investigation," Wright said.
Wright would not confirm or deny that Burris was interviewed by federal agents.
But sources say he was questioned for several hours Saturday about his contacts concerning the Senate seat appointment by former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Burris spokesman Jim O'Connor, also told the Sun-Times that Burris had no intentions of resigning.

Where is Blagojevich? He seems to be staying out of the lime light lately...I heard he signed a book deal, is it true?
