Rod Blagojevich and John Harris discuss a call Harris got from John Wyma relaying a message from the Obama camp.
This is significant because it shows that Wyma, a Blagojevich friend and lobbyist, had contact with both the Obama camp and the then-governor at the same time he had been cooperating with federal officials.
Wyma passed along a message from Rahm Emanuel:
"Rahm asked him to deliver the message -- the president-elect would be very pleased if you appointed Valerie and he would be, uh, thankful and appreciative" for a Valerie Jarrett appointment.
"They're not willing to give me anything but appreciation -- f--- them," Blagojevich said.
