Federal prosecutors in the Rod Blagojevich political corruption trial file their response Wednesday to the defense's call to have all the charges against him dropped.

The defense filed a motion for acquittal in the wake of the hung jury.

Back in August, the jury was deadlocked on 23 of the 24 counts against the ex-governor.

Blagojevich's second trial is set for early January.
