Former Blagojevich chief of staff John Harris details a Dec. 8 meeting between the ex-governor and Jesse Jackson Jr. The meeting happened the day before the governor's arrest.
Harris testified that the two, who long had a strained political relationship, discussed the possibility of a political alliance.
The meeting, at the Thompson Center, was not recorded.
Just before ending the meeting, Rod Blagojevich told Jackson:
"I'm glad someone's thinking about me and how they can help me," Blagojevich said, according to Harris.
