WASHINGTON--President-elect Barack Obama's internal report on staff communications with Gov. Rod Blagojevich will be released by Tuesday, a spokesman said on Sunday.
Meanwhile, ABC News Chief Washington Correspondent and "This Week" Host George Stephanopoulos said in his blog and on his show that he's been tipped that the report will show Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), Obama's incoming chief of staff had one conversation with Blagojevich and four conversations with his now former chief of staff John Harris.
Writes Stephanopoulos: The pros and cons of various candidates were reviewed, and the sources say that Emanuel repeatedly reminded Harris that Blagojevich should focus on the message the pick would send about the governor and his administration.
FOOTNOTE: Emanuel and Stephanopoulos worked together in the 1992 Clinton presidential campaign and served in the Clinton White House together.
