And...we're back in time.

It seemed the government was building up toward the last days before Blagojevich's Dec. 9th, 2008 arrest.

Apparently prosecutors have more to get out of John Harris first.

Now prosecutor Carrie Hamilton is asking questions about horse-racing legislation and Lon Monk.

In a different phone call, Rod Blagojevich can be heard talking about how he doesn't want the campaign fund to pay for his Christmas party.

John Harris tells him: "If you charge people to come, a lot of people won't come."

Blagojevich: "The government can't pay for that, huh?"
