It's Rod Blagojevich against 11 witnesses, Assistant U.S. Attorney Reid Schar argued at the tail end of his closing argument in Rod Blagojevich's re-trial.
"This is not some large government frame-up," Schar insists. "Apparently somehow all these people got him back in 2008 to say a bunch of things that are actually incriminating of him."
Schar concludes with a direct address to the jury.
"Right and wrong. That is the power you have. That is the power you have," Schar repeats. "Your verdict will speak the truth. Your verdict will speak the truth. And the truth is he is guilty."
With that, Blagojevich's retrial awaits only the jury deliberations and verdict. Judge James Zagel is now instructing the jury on their responsibilities.
