Federal prosecutors offered Congressman Chris Collins a plea deal, but he turned it down.
According to the Buffalo News, the deal was offered before prosecutors indicted Collins for insider trading and lying to the FBI earlier this month.
Terms of the proposed plea deal were not disclosed.
Lawyers for Collins and the U.S Attorney's Office declined to comment.
