President-elect Barack Obama said Wednesday he was anxious to correct the record on his transition team's involvement with Gov. Rod Blagojevich and described the delay requested by federal authorities as "frustrating."

From the AP:

Obama said Wednesday that "it's a little bit frustrating" that he has not yet been able to release the results of an internal investigation into whether anyone on his staff had talks with embattled Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Obama had been asked at a news conference about the transparency he promised voters in his campaign for the presidency. He repeated that he has been asked by federal prosecutors not to release the report until they give the go-ahead.

He said that "by next week, you guys will have the answers to all your questions."

Blagojevich is accused of trying to sell or trade Obama's vacant U.S. Senate seat.
