Rod Blagojevich.
The committee says in a report on its Web site that "the totality of the evidence warrants the impeachment of the governor for cause."
The committee, which consists of 21 House members, may vote Thursday on whether to adopt the draft report and recommend impeachment, said Mike Weir, a spokesman for speaker's office in the Illinois House of Representatives.
If the committee votes to recommend impeachment, the full House would vote on whether to impeach the governor.
Roland Burris, the governor's pick to serve in the U.S. Senate seat, is scheduled to testify before the committee on Thursday afternoon.
FBI agents arrested Blagojevich on December 9 after federal prosecutors alleged, among other things, that he had tried to sell the Senate seat that President-elect Barack Obama has vacated.
Blagojevich denies wrongdoing and has ignored calls to resign.
