Robert Blagojevich: Feds Want To Question Governor's Brother

Posted: Updated:

An attorney for Gov. Rod Blagojevich's brother says his client won't cooperate with federal investigators if asked.

Rob Blagojevich is a Tennessee businessman who chairs his brother's Friends of Blagojevich fund. He's been identified as "Fundraiser A" in the 76-page criminal complaint charging the Illinois governor with corruption.

Rob Blagojevich hasn't been charged with wrongdoing.

His attorney, Michael Ettinger, tells the Chicago Sun-Times that there's "not a prayer" his client will talk to the federal government.

Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested Dec. 9 on charges that accuse him of scheming to trade President-elect Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat for profit. The governor says he's innocent.
