Prosecutors are expected to resume their closing argument on Thursday in the corruption retrial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. On Wednesday, Prosecutor Carrie Hamilton got about an hour and a half into her close. WBEZ’s criminal and legal affairs reporter Robert Wildeboer says Hamilton’s argument was devastating in its simplicity. He joined Eight Forty-Eight to talk about that and other interesting developments in this fast moving case.
