WASHINGTON: Justice Department prosecutors investigating former lobbyist Jack Abramoff are beginning to move on evidence pointing to possible corruption in Congress and executive-branch agencies, lawyers involved in the case said.
Prosecutors have told one lawmaker, Rep. Robert Ney, R-Ohio, and his former chief of staff that they are preparing a possible bribery case against them, according to two sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
The 35 to 40 investigators and prosecutors on the Abramoff case are focused on at least a half-dozen members of Congress, said lawyers and others close to the probe.
I have noticed that in this wide spread case of corruption, with politicians at both the national and state level involved, to date every one of those invovled are Republicans. One can only speculate how many more Republicans would be implicated if we only had a viable investigative force somewhere in the congress.
Republincans, the offical party of crime and corruption.
