A federal investigation concludes several employees engaged in wrongdoings
Several FBI officials have been caught up in an investigation revealing many of them solicited prostitutes while on taxpayer-funded overseas business trips.
According to the DOJ, “Four FBI officials had sex with prostitutes while posted overseas, while a fifth also tried to — and all but one ‘lacked candor’ about it during interviews and lie-detector tests.”
Two of the FBI agents allegedly provided “a package containing approximately 100 white pills” to a “foreign law enforcement officer,” according to the federal agency.
Two of the five individuals described in the report have resigned, two of them retired and one was fired.
There was also a sixth individual in the document who allegedly failed to report their colleagues’ behavior to superiors, and the FBI is saying it will “take all appropriate disciplinary actions” against the employee.
In a public statement, the FBI said it “appreciates the Office of Inspector General’s thorough investigation into the reported misconduct by several former employees. We have already completed numerous measures during the OIG’s investigation to ensure this type of behavior does not happen again.”
“The majority of our personnel, wherever they are stationed, represent the FBI with the utmost honor and respect,” the bureau added. “We will not tolerate these few individuals, who chose to disregard their oath and the public we serve, tarnishing the good work the rest of the FBI accomplishes each and every day.”
Just a few weeks ago, a Buzzfeed Freedom of Information Act lawsuit revealed at least 10 CIA employees and contractors have committed sexual crimes involving children, with only one of them being charged with any crime.
America’s intelligence agencies need to be cleaned up for the sake of our country.
