Inside the Rod Blagojevich investigation and related cases

Evidence against Blago is in: 1 million documents, 400 hours of tape

Prosecutors have said they have an extraordinary amount of evidence against the ex-governor. They weren't joking.
The feds just turned over 1 million documents and 400 hours of recorded conversations to defense lawyers in Rod Blagojevich's case.
There's another at least 500 to 1000 hours of recorded conversations but prosecutors turned over the "pertinent" conversations to lawyers.
The volume of evidence will likely be one argument defense lawyers use as they're expected to ask U.S. District Judge James Zagel to appoint attorneys to the case.
