An official probe was launched after the FBI raised the alarm that “multiple then FBI officials solicited, engaged in, and/or procured commercial sex,” a DOJ report said Tuesday.
Two of the officials were also accused of being involved in delivering “a package containing approximately 100 white pills” to a “foreign law enforcement officer,” the report said, without elaboration.
The report did not identify the five officials, but said two had resigned, two had retired and one was removed during the probe.
A sixth agent accused of breaking policy by failing to report colleagues’ misconduct still works for the bureau, which vowed to “take all appropriate disciplinary actions” against the employee.
The report also did not detail when or where the dalliances occurred. However, the FBI said it involved “employees previously working overseas in various FBI Legal Attaché Offices” and was referred to the DOJ in 2018.
Tuesday’s report said the DOJ’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) had “substantiated” allegations “that four FBI officials solicited, procured, and accepted commercial sex overseas,” while a fifth “solicited” sex.
