The courtroom quiets as prosecutor Carrie Hamilton fires off a series of questions in her re-direct, her voice rising.
"Did (Blagojevich) ever say he loved the people of Illinois so much -- that's why he considered Valerie Jarrett?" Hamilton asks.
"No," Harris says.
"When he directed you to tell the Chicago Tribune to fire those f-ing people ... did you believe him to be venting or serious?" she asks.
"Serious," Harris says.
Harris says he never tried personally benefiting from anything during the conspiracy with Blagojevich.
"Sir, was it clear to you that defendant Blagojevich was trying to benefit himself?" Hamilton asks.
"Yes," Harris says.
Blagojevich stares right at the witness, not reacting.
