OIG Report: Findings of Misconduct By Senior FBI Official For Having Unauthorized Contact with Media, Accepting Unauthorized Gifts From Reporters

The Office of Inspector General on Tuesday released its findings of misconduct by a then-senior FBI official for having numerous unauthorized contacts with the media, and for accepting unauthorized gifts from members of the media.

A senior FBI official had numerous unauthorized contacts with members of the media between January and November 2016 in violation of FBI policy.

The FBI official also received tickets to black-tie dinners, had unauthorized lunches, dinners and other social engagements with reporters.

“The OIG investigation substantiated the allegation that the Senior FBI Official had numerous unauthorized contacts with the media from 2014 through 2016, in violation of FBI policy. In addition to substantive communications with reporters, this media contact included unauthorized social engagements outside of FBI Headquarters involving drinks, lunches, and dinners,” the OIG report said.
