Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr.’s office Wednesday told CNN that reports and commentary referring to the congressman as an “informant” and a “snitch” for the FBI on the cable news broadcast Tuesday were false.
This comes after the FBI released startling information concerning Jackson’s role in facilitating the investigation of Gov. Rod Blagojevich. The FBI documents state that Jesse Jackson, Jr. worked closely, and at times, clandestine, with the FBI in gathering information directly related to the charges of federal corruption that Gov. Blagojevich is currently facing.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer commented that it appeared that Jackson was an “informant” and then subsequent discussion labeled the congressman as a “snitch.” It is too bad that with all the gross shadiness and morally bankrupt double-dealing and stealing that politicians and CEO’s are doing nowadays, none of us can recognize a stand-up citizen anymore.
