The FBI agents who investigated Jesse Jackson Jr.  say the disgraced ex-congressman sent his lawyer to them, looking for a plea deal, while they were still investigating the case.

According to the agents, both Jackson and his wife Sandi expressed early interest in cooperating to avoid long jail sentences.

Based on interviews and records of about 3100 transactions, the agents say they had a strong case against the couple, who pleaded guilty to misuse of about $750,000 dollars in campaign funds.
