One can only wonder, after years of cooperation with the FBI as an informant, whether or not Jessie Jackson Jr. will end up one day sitting on the stand as a witness on behalf of the government against Illinois Gov. Blagojevich.
One can only ponder how many cases Jackson Jr. was working on with the FBI in its investigation of the Illinois government.
It’s not a stretch to assume that there is possibly a lot more people to be arrested in the future. Maybe some very big names. Jackson Jr.’s cooperation with the Federal Government goes back many years and it might take much more to sort through all of the evidence.
We can see the Feds started with the top. A Governor trying to sell a United States Senate seat. However, that was something the government had to put out quickly and put an end to before he actually sold President-Elect Barack Obama’s Senate Seat to the highest bidder.
Common sense will tell you there has to be a lot more to come that the US Attorney’s office was not forced to bring out immediately.
In the end, one could only guess whether or not Jesse Jackson Jr.’s informant assets will be comparable to Sammy Gravano’s assets the government built up against John Gotti.
