A summary of the Inspector General’s report claims a deputy assistant director of the FBI not only leaked classified information to the press, but also accepted gifts – read: bribes – from members of the media.
Please, remind me how the FBI is an honorable organization.
According to a summary of a DOJ inspector general’s report released Wednesday, the former official, who served as a deputy assistant director, accepted a $225 ticket from a reporter to a media-sponsored event. The official, who is not identified, also allegedly provided law enforcement sensitive information to reporters on “multiple” occasions without authorization of the bureau. The official “had dozens of official contacts with the media” in violation of FBI policy.
The inspector general also found the former official might have been in contempt of court by allegedly disclosing the existence of information that was under a court seal. The Justice Department declined prosecution of the official.
Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general (IG), said in the previous report that investigators found “dozens” of FBI employees had contacts with the press.
I believe it was William who usually suggests the FBI be disbanded and replaced with the U.S. Marshals. He’s not wrong. The FBI is corrupt to its core, and every day I start to believe it’s not just the administration, but a multitude of special agents.
