Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich stands by his innocence and will continue to fight to clear his name.
"I am absolutely very determined to continue to seek vindication, full vindication," he said this morning on "The Today Show".
Blagojevich said that "you keep fighting against all the odds" and praised the juror who refused to find him guilty. "I've always had deep abiding faith in God and when I look at that, it just confirms again, praise God and certainly thank her for her good judgment."
The former governor also lashed out against the federal prosecutors in his case saying they are wasting taxpayer money and "threw everything but the kitchen sink at me."
"You know I am up against the giant Goliath, and I take solace in the biblical story of David," he said. "In this case, I don't have a sling shot, but I do have truth on my side."
Blagojevich also claimed former Illinois representative and current White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel "was part of the deal" regarding the brokering over the Senate seat President Obama vacated. "Political horse trading and discussing those sorts of things are still legal--happens even today when congress votes," he said.
Lastly, with reports that Blagojevich is out of money, there's speculation that he might return to reality TV. "If the opportunities are there, I would certainly take a look at it," he said.
