Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich will hold a news conference at 5 p.m. today at his defense lawyer's office and is expected to talk about the recordings in his case.
A news release from his PR people says Blagojevich is expected to make:"the strongest public statement to date concerning the charges he is facing."
Yesterday, prosecutors filed a petition with the judge saying that there's no need to play all the recordings at trial as the former governor has requested in the past.
It was just days ago that Blagojevich's lawyers asked that portions of a key document in his case be kept secret because of the pretrial publicity it would cause.
U.S. District Judge James Zagel released the document anyway.
