"We've never seen anything like this. The bulk pardons for war criminals is unprecedented. Giving pardons to people charged in an investigation of the president himself, unheard of."

Ex-Rep. Chris Collins, a Buffalo-area Republican and close ally of Donald Trump, pled guilty to conspiracy to commit securities fraud and making false statement on Tuesday.

While Collins had initially entered a not-guilty plea—describing the charges as 'meritless'—it appears he will change his plea on Tuesday.

Collins had at first agreed to accept a nomination for a lower office so that the party could try to find a candidate not so recently arrested by the FBI.

He cited the Democrats' desire to take back the House and impeach President Trump as impetus for his decision.

Remarkably, Collins's initial criminal act appears to have been caught on video by CBS News.

The case is 'relating to securities of Innate Immunotherapeutics.'
