Office of Inspector General Finds FBI Special Agent Directed Subordinate to Give His Wife a Cash Bonus – DOJ Declines Prosecution

According to an investigation conducted by the Office of Inspector General, an FBI Special Agent in Charge (SAC) illegally directed a subordinate to give his spouse a cash award.

When the unidentified agent got caught for ethical violations pertaining to a financial conflict of interest, they retired and refused to cooperate with the Office of Inspector General.

The Department of Justice declined to prosecute the SAC.

“The Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated an investigation after receiving information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Inspection Division, alleging that a then FBI Special Agent in Charge (SAC) had assigned the SAC’s spouse, who worked within the SAC’s chain of command, to serve on a committee and then arranged for the committee members, including the spouse, to receive cash awards in recognition of such service,” the Office of Inspector General wrote in an investigative summary.
