Jack Abramoff’s lawyer issues a dreadfull warning to Republicans.
A federal judge Monday refused to allow a lengthy delay in the sentencing of lobbyist Jack Abramoff, even though lawyers for both sides said the move could jeopardize a federal corruption investigation involving Congress and the Bush administration.
Abramoff attorney Abbe Lowell warned that the defense would disclose information about the ongoing corruption investigation to demonstrate the level of Abramoff’s cooperation, something that could affect Abramoff’s sentence in the fraud case.
“We will name names,” Lowell said by telephone at a hearing before U.S. District Judge Paul C. Huck. “That is not a good thing for law enforcement.”
Sure, the prosecution would like to delay releasing the names of prominent Republicans that Jack Abramoff is ratting out, but I for one can’t wait for Diamond Jack to tell us who he is helping the DOJ to prosecute in open court.
