Lon Monk is back on the stand saying he witnessed Rod Blagojevich grow upset when he learned the hospital wasn't returning his brother's phone calls soliciting campaign contributions.

"He wasn't happy, he got up and said: 'Screw these guys,' and got on the phone," Monk testified Blagojevich said in a meeting with him and Robert Blagojevich.

Monk said Rod Blagojevich then called the governor's office and talked to an aide about the status of state funds for the hospital.

"Don't do anything with it until I talk to you," Monk said he overheard Rod Blagojevich say.
