Despite allegations that Blagojevich elevated Jesse Jackson Jr. as a Senate candidate because of a promise to give him $1.5 million in campaign cash, John Harris just testified that money never came up in their Dec. 8, 2008 meeting.
That meeting, one day before the ex-governor was arrested, happened in the State of Illinois building.
"Did Congressman Jackson say anything about money?" Sam Adam asked.
"No," Harris said.
Prosecutors will raise the point that by that date, Blagojevich was on notice that secret government recordings were a possibility.
