WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Embattled U.S. lobbyist Jack Abramoff is expected to plead guilty on Tuesday in a corruption probe that implicates several top Republican lawmakers including former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a Justice Department official said.
The long-expected plea will give prosecutors extra ammunition as they seek to link the activities of DeLay of Texas, Republican Rep. Bob Ney (news, bio, voting record) of Ohio, and other top lawmakers to favors paid for by Abramoff's lobbying clients.
Abramoff is expected to plead guilty to conspiracy, tax evasion and fraud before a federal judge in Washington at 12:15 p.m. (1715 GMT), the official said. The Justice Department planned to hold a news conference later in the day.
