Not a Good Day for Blagojevich

John Harris, who served as Blagojevich's chief of staff, entered into a plea agreement that includes cooperation. The agreement states:

Defendant agrees he will fully and truthfully cooperate in any matter in which he is called upon to cooperate by a representative of the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Illinois.  This cooperation shall include providing complete and truthful information in any investigation and pre-trial preparation and complete and truthful testimony in any criminal, civil or administrative proceeding.  Defendant agrees to the postponement of his sentencing until after the conclusion of his cooperation.

Does Harris' "I told him not to do it" mean there was no act until he spelled one out in his plea? Are there wiretaps of the act or a conspiracy to act?

Part of the settlement is "Defendant agrees he will fully and truthfully cooperate in any matter in which he is called upon to cooperate" Yea right.. Like that is really going to happen....
