That wouldn’t surprise me either!
I wonder what the feds got on JJ jr to get him to turn and become an “informant”
My, my, my...
I see Jr right in there thinking this was a step up, and trying to out bid Obama. BTW, the Blago fundraiser did happen.
There was an obvious bidding war, Obama wanted a friendly Senate spy, and was trying to outbid the competition.
If he’s been talking to federal investigators for years, why isn’t the entire Combine in jail?
CNN reported late Tuesday, citing two unnamed people close to the congressman. Jackson has served as an informant for "more than a decade" and has related information about Blagojevich since 2006, according to the report. Jackson has said federal prosecutors told him he is not a target of their investigation.
Brian Williams was all atwitter tonight about this.
He reported that JJ jr has been ratting out Rod for at least two years.
Although, not on this specific case.
Something doesn’t smell right about JJjr
suddenly confessing to being Chicago’s Sammy the Bull Gravano on all things Blogo,
except the Senate seat.
I get the feeling that the cesspool of Illinois politics is going to be a circular firing squad.Which is fine by me!
I think he’s lying because Fitz is on his tail.
It certainly sounds like it!
you do know that if Jackson is cooperating with the authorities he is doing so for a reason. They are holding a threat over his head. Anyone know what it could be?
It was talk or be indicted.
Maybe it could be that the entire family are crooks?!
Sad part is Emperor Zero probably won’t be touched
