A reporter suggested yesterday that he may have been, but Emanuel denies it.

Via TPM:

A source close to Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel is denying reports that Rahm tipped off the Feds to Blagojevich’s alleged efforts to sell Obama’s Senate seat. […]

“It may have been Rahm Emanuel who tipped the scale and made this move as quickly as it did,” the reporter said.

But a source close to Rahm emails us that “it’s not true,” adding that the story is the “result of some overzealous reporting.”

So who did tip off the federal prosecutors? Will we ever know?

More as it develops…
