Blagojevich: I'm On The "Wrong Planet"
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says if what he's done is an impeachable offense, he's living on the "wrong planet" and is in the "wrong place."
Speaking to a WLS-TV reporter outside a Chicago law office, the governor said he was hired to fight for the people of Illinois and that's what he's been doing.
The interview marked the first time Blagojevich has spoken to the media since giving a defiant three-minute speech last Friday in which he said he'll fight the forces against him until he takes his last breath.
"Look, if I'd have known people were listening, I probably wouldn't have said some of the things you say in private conversations," Blagojevich said Friday. "But I think there's probably tens of millions of people across America that talk like that from time to time."
"Even in this process, without saying too much, that was all about trying to end up with the right decision that could do the most things for the people of Illinois, and when the full truth is told, you will see precisely that," Blagojevich said.
"If somehow that's impeachable, then I'm on the wrong planet and I'm living in the wrong place," he said.
