Rep. Jordan sends letter to Inspector General Horowitz over alleged misconduct from FBI official
Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan sent a letter to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz over the recently released DOJ investigation summary of a senior FBI official who had unauthorized contacts with the media.
On Tuesday, the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Justice released the findings of an investigation that found a former senior FBI official violated agency policy by having numerous unauthorized contacts with the media. The investigation found that going as far back as 2014, the unnamed official had unauthorized contacts with the media.
Those meetings included “substantive communications” with reporters and “unauthorized social engagements outside of FBI Headquarters involving drinks, lunches, and dinners.” Investigators found that the official had accepted tickets from members of the media for two black-tie dinner events, one costing $225, and the other costing $300.
