In cross examination, union leader Tom Balanoff goes over some similar testimony with defense lawyer Shelly Sorosky.
Balanoff reiterates his call from President Obama the night before the 2008 Presidential election.
"Valerie Jarrett then told you she was interested in the Senate seat?" Sorosky asked.
"You then had certain marching orders?" Sorosky asks.
"I would not call them marching orders," Balanoff said.
"You had a job?" Sorosky asks.
"I wouldn't call it a job." Balanoff stands firm.
"You were so disinclined to help Valerie Jarrett that you called up Gov. Blagojevich to set up a meeting?" Sorosky asks, getting a gentle rebuffing from Judge Zagel asking him not to be sarcastic.
Sorosky presses Balanoff on whether Blagojevich explicitly said he'd appoint Jarrett in exchange for a cabinet appointment.
Balanoff begins to say that's his understanding before Sorosky cuts him off.
"Yes or no," Sorosky says.
"No," Balanoff says.
