The same federal judge who jailed him twice in recent weeks released infamous TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau Monday after making him pledge under oath that he had divulged all his assets to the government.

U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman, who suspects that Trudeau has hidden his millions in offshore accounts and sham companies, jailed the 50-year-old for one day last month and for six days this week at Chicago's Metropolitan Correctional Center as a way of trying to force him to reveal where he's stashed his money.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Gettleman released Trudeau Monday and warned him that he could face perjury charges "if there are any other assets that are discovered or turned up ... or that I find you control."

Trudeau is accused of hiding assets in an attempt to dodge a $38 million fine he was slapped with after reportedly make false clams in his diet book infomercials.

But Trudeau insists he's dead broke, even though the judge has repeatedly accused him of living a luxurious lifestyle, complete with a personal chef and a Bentley.

When Gettleman asked Monday if he had any other assets to disclose, Trudeau replied, "None that I know of." The judge vowed to jail him again if progress isn't made in payment of the fine, telling Trudeau he's "not out of the woods" yet.

The pitchman also faces criminal contempt charges stemming from the case, with a jury trial scheduled to begin next week.
