Blagojevich: I Did Nothing Wrong

In a last-ditch effort to save his job, Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich told senators at his impeachment trial that he's done nothing wrong and the evidence doesn't support kicking him out of office.

The Democratic governor repeated his frequent complaint that he wasn't allowed to call witnesses who would have defended him against the criminal charges at the heart of the impeachment case.

Blagojevich did acknowledge that the truth of his actions might not be flattering in some cases. He referred to taped conversations played earlier in the Senate trial. The tapes appeared to show Blagojevich linking legislation to campaign contributions.

He said that's something "all of us in politics do."

The Senate is scheduled to vote Thursday afternoon on whether to convict Blagojevich and remove him.
