CHICAGO - Federal authorities yesterday filed a motion asking for court permission to release portions of taped recordings that led to Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's arrest earlier this month on criminal corruption charges to a House impeachment committee.

U.S. District Court Chief Judge James Holderman will hear the motion filed by the U.S. Attorney's office next Monday. If approved, the action would mark a significant development for the special investigative committee set up to consider impeaching the governor following his arrest on various pay-to-play charges.
