In an exclusive interview with This Week, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said the Obama transition team should publicly release all information relating to the corruption investigation into Illinois Rod Blagojevich.

"I think that the Obama campaign should and will give all information necessary," McCain told me in his first Sunday interview since the election.

McCain suggested the Republican National Committee’s calls for the Obama team to publicly release their conversations with Blagojevich and his people aren’t helpful.

"With all due respect to the Republican National Committee, we should try to be working constructively together," McCain said. 

"I have some confidence that all of the information will come out. It always does it seems to me," he said.

McCain argued disgraced Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich should resign. 

"He should," McCain said, "there’s a lot of corruption among Republicans and Democrats…I would hope that he resigns. Unfortunately it isn’t confined to one city or one state."
