Blagojevich takes case to 'The View'

Gov. Rod Blagojevich won't confirm or deny what prosecutors say he was caught saying on wiretapped conversations. Blagojevich was grilled by Barbara Walters about the wiretaps during a Monday morning appearance on "The View."

It's the latest stop on Blagojevich's media tour in New York. His impeachment trial is set to start Monday afternoon in Illinois.

Walters interviewed him via a video hookup. She was in Los Angeles and not in the New York studio.

Blagojevich also appeared Monday morning in a taped interview on NBC's "Today Show" and appeared live on ABC's "Good Morning America."

He's set to do "Larry King Live" Monday night.

The embattled governor is refusing to take part in the Illinois Senate trial that could oust him from office. He says it's so biased against him that he can't get a fair hearing.
