A scathing letter sent from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz to FBI Director Christopher Wray in September indicates that serious allegations of misconduct had been discovered among FBI employees.
In the letter, dated September 25, 2017, Horowitz warned the FBI director that the Office of the Inspector General had identified “potential systemic issues” during an ongoing review of the FBI.
“Specifically, as described below, we learned that, contrary to FBI policy, the FBI’s Analysis and Investigations Unit (AIU) is not appropriately reporting all allegations of misconduct that it learns about to its Inspection Division (INSD) and to the OIG,” the letter stated.
Horowitz slammed Wray for cases involving “high-risk security concerns,” in which reports of misconduct were not being reported in writing, as required.
Additionally, incidents of any allegation of criminal or serious administrative misconduct was not being reported to their supervisor, according to policy requirements.
Horowitz noted that, in addition to not following FBI policy, “Our concerns are heightened because all FBI employees have Top Secret clearances, which give them access to classified information when relevant to their work.”
