Prosecutors Say Schock Shouldn’t Get More Info on Informant

John McCain Accepts The Republican Party Nomination

Federal prosecutors say former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock shouldn’t get more information about a confidential informant in his corruption case.

The prosecutors made the argument in a 60-page motion filed late Tuesday. The (Peoria) Journal Star reports that prosecutors also say the Peoria Republican shouldn’t receive any additional material from the grand jury that investigated him. Schock was indicted in 2016 after resigning from Congress.

In the filing, prosecutors accuse Schock of trying to avoid trial by engaging “in an increasingly aggressive search for some governmental misconduct claim.”

Schock’s attorneys last month said in filings that someone who worked for Schock secretly provided the government with information, including illegally recorded conversations with fellow staffers. They asked the judge to force prosecutors to provide more information about the informant.
