Defense Contractor Continues to Cooperate in Federal Bribery Case

A federal prosecutor says a defense contractor who pleaded guilty to bribing former Republican Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham continues to cooperate and may be a trial witness against another contractor and an ex-CIA official who were indicted last month.

The prosecutor said in federal court in Washington on Monday that Mitchell Wade "is cooperating in a number of matters" and "may well be a trial witness" in the case against the C-I-A's former Number Three official, Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, and contractor Brent Wilkes.

Federal prosecutor Howard Sklamberg gave the update to Judge Ricardo Urbina at a status hearing.

Urbina agreed to delay sentencing and set another status hearing for September.

Wade pleaded guilty one year ago to plying Cunningham with a yacht, cash and other gifts in exchange for Defense Department contracts. Wade was not present in court.
