Jack Abramoff, the Republican lobbyist under indictment for fraud in southern Florida, is expected to finalize a plea agreement in the criminal case, setting the stage for him to potentially become a crucial witness in a broad U.S. corruption investigation, according to people with knowledge of the case.
It’s feared that a number of lawmakers and aides could be tarnished in a corruption scandal if Abramoff cooperates with prosecutors.
Some very powerful people will fall on this; members of Congress, prominent neocons, etc. I wonder if Abramoff is already under witness protection with armed protection? Yes, I think it quite possible that some will now would want Abramoff dead.
