A jury convicted former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich in 2010 on one count of lying to the FBI, but deadlocked on the other charges. The retrial on bribery and corruption charges is expected to go the jury Thursday, after testimony from Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill.), Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, and Blagojevich himself.
