Rod Blagojevich retrial: Day 9, John Harris

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Highlights:

Prosecution: Prosecutors delved right into the Senate seat allegations by putting former Chief of Staff John Harris on the stand as their first
substantial witness. In last summer's trial, Harris didn't appear for
several weeks.

Defense: Though Judge James Zagel cut them off, the defense managed to ask an FBI agent several questions Zagel had previously blocked. The questions
implied the FBI could pick and choose when to secretly tape the former
governor.

Up next: John Harris' testimony continues today and we expect to go through dozens of more conversations and recordings.
