He said he will not step down or resign from office and intends to address the allegations against him in court.
He said he expects to be vindicated.
"I'm here to tell you right off the bat that I am not guilty of any criminal wrongdoing, that I intend to stay on the job, and I will fight this thing every step of the way. I will fight, I will fight, I will fight until I take my last breath," Blagojevich said. "I have done nothing wrong."
Blagojevich cast himself as a victim in the case and that he will not let a "political lynch mob" force him from office.
Will Blagojevich be vindicated or will he become just another in a long line of Illinois governors sentenced to prison terms?
