Higgins calls allegations against Collins 'shameful'

Rep. Brian Higgins ripped his fellow Congressman Chris Collins over the allegations unveiled Wednesday in a federal indictment that Collins engaged in insider trading and fraud.

"The allegations included in the indictment against Rep. Chris Collins can be summed up in one word: shameful," the Buffalo Democrat said in a tweeted statement about the Clarence-based Republican congressman.

Higgins continued in his statement issued late Wednesday morning: "These charges, including insider trading, conspiracy to commit fraud, and lying to federal officials, laid out by professionals within the Justice Department and FBI are backed up by comprehensive evidence of these very serious offenses. I am confident that, in due course, justice will be served."
