Randy Cunningham has not been helping federal authorities as they continue to probe the former North County congressman’s web of corruption, a top Pentagon investigator said Tuesday.
Rick Gwin, special agent in charge of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service’s western regional office, said he is troubled by the lack of assistance, particularly in light of Cunningham’s plea agreement that calls for him to tell all that he knows.
“In my opinion, he has not been cooperative and I have not gotten any information from him to further develop other targets,” Gwin said in a telephone interview from his office in Mission Viejo. “I was hoping that from a jail cell, he might become more cooperative, but we just don’t have the cooperation that I think we should have.” … “This is much bigger and wider than just Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham,” he said. “All that has just not come out yet, but it won’t be much longer and then you will know just how widespread this is.”
