Previous witnesses in the case had testified the governor was seeking a Cabinet post in exchange for naming Obama's friend and adviser, Valerie Jarrett, to the Senate seat.

Scofield testified that, in exchange for appointing Jarrett, Blagojevich wanted to be appointed secretary of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

On another tape just played by prosecutors, Rod Blagojevich is heard talking to John Harris over the phone on Nov. 3, 2008 -- the day before the election.

They are discussing how Barack Obama is sending two representatives -- union leaders Tom Balanoff and Andy Stern -- to visit to talk about Valerie Jarrett.
