President-elect Barack Obama's transition office is expected to release an internal review Tuesday of all contacts his staff had with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's office over the Senate seat Obama vacated.

Last week Obama described the findings of the review as
"thorough and comprehensive," and he promised to make them public
this week.

A spokeswoman said the report has been ready for a week, and
that the transition team has held off on releasing it at the
request of the U.S. Attorney's office.

Obama is on vacation in Hawaii this week, and he isn't expected
to make any public statements about the report while he's away.

Blagojevich was arrested earlier this month after prosecutors
said he was essentially trying to sell the Senate seat.
