Over in the current Q thread, ATS member AndyFromMichigan posted the following:


A couple of documents just appeared on the oig.justice.gov website. I don't have time to check them out right now.


A bit of discussion has since taken place and I was wondering if anyone else out there on the web had made mention of this particular document.

Taking a look I found the following:


The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) within the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday released an “investigative summary” highlighting key charges against a recently-retired FBI special agent.

The special agent’s name is not relayed in the summary and an official at the DOJ declined a request by Law&Crime to provide additional information–but suggested a Freedom of Information Act request.


Law & Crime

From the actual document:


The OIG found that the SA contacted individuals who he either knew were, or had reasonable belief would be witnesses in the criminal investigation and that the SA’s contacts with several individuals appeared to be designed to improperly influence their prospective testimony. Accordingly, the OIG concluded that the SA’s contacts with the witnesses were improper and constituted misconduct.

During the investigation, the OIG also found that the SA divulged law enforcement sensitive information to unauthorized individuals; misused his government issued electronic devices; provided misleading testimony during a related civil deposition; mishandled classified information; misused his position during contacts with local law enforcement officers; and provided false information to the OIG. Criminal prosecution of the SA was declined.

The article concludes thusly:


Astute readers might imagine at least a couple of high-profile individuals who might find something to like in the above-quoted disposition.


So, ATS, who do you think it is or might be whom is indicated by this particular OIG report?

"Criminal prosecution was declined".

Hmmm...

Well let me start by saying this guy should be prosecuted, whoever he (or she) is. Lied to the IG? So this person committed the same crime flynn and papadopolous did.

As to who its is.

Is the title "special agent" important? Does that mean it cant be McCabe or comey or someone with a higher title, or could "special agent" be a generic term?

Anyways remember, just ask the msm, we cant criticize FBI agents or management, cause that means we are hurting America!

So this must be a fake story because the fbi agents are all super professional that would never do anything improper!

That would be the only viable reason I could see.

I am tired of a certain class of people being able to break laws that the rest of us cant.

Considering all of the things the Special Agent is found to have done, he or she would have had to have something substantial to offer in return for not being prosecuted.

The IG named others in his reports. This one is not named... possibly because the special agent is cooperating.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated this
investigation after receiving information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),
Inspection Division, alleging that an FBI Special Agent (SA), who has since retired, may have
contacted witnesses during a federal criminal investigation for an improper purpose.


Is their any relevance to the fact this was recomended by the Inspection Dvision?

DO they only handle certain types of cases, are they like an internal affairs of the fbi, or something else.

I have to run for a minute, but finding out who brought this to the attention of the IG may help reveal who the special agent was.

Just guessing I would say Josh Campbell. He's likely less insulated than the higher ups and seemed close enough to know the interworkings.

Good question, from the FBI website:


Office of the Director/Deputy Director/Associate Deputy Director

Finance and Facilities Division – Richard L. Haley, II
Inspection Division – Ronald Twersky (Acting)
Office of the Chief Information Officer – Gordon Bitko
Office of Congressional Affairs – Charles A. Thorley (Acting)
Office of EEO Affairs – Arlene A. Gaylord
Office of the General Counsel – Dana Boente
Office of Integrity and Compliance – Catherine Bruno (Acting)
Office of the Ombudsman – Monique A. Bookstein
Office of Professional Responsibility – Candice M. Will
Office of Public Affairs – Jacqueline Maguire (Acting)
Records Management Division – Stephen P. Rees
Resource Planning Office – Hayden Temin


Ronald Twersky:


Ronald Twersky was named special agent in charge of the Administrative Division. Mr. Twersky became a special agent in 1994 and was assigned to the Los Angeles Field Office, where he investigated violent street gangs and public corruption matters. Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Mr. Twersky volunteered to work counterterrorism matters, and in 2002, he was promoted to supervisory special agent at FBI Headquarters in the Counterterrorism Division. He subsequently transferred to the San Francisco Division as a Joint Terrorism Task Force supervisor. In 2008, he was promoted to assistant special agent in charge of the Seattle Division, where he managed cyber, counterintelligence, white-collar crime, intelligence, and administrative programs, respectively. Mr. Twersky most recently served as an inspector in the Inspection Division at FBI Headquarters, where he evaluated FBI field office and legal attaché operations and led teams conducting agent-involved shooting investigations.
emphasis mine

Executive-Level Appointments Announced in New York Field Office

In looking around a little more, I see that Mr. Twersky was CC'ed in a memo:


MANAGEMENT ADVISORY MEMORANDUM FOR:
CHRISTOPHER A. WRAY


Source - (direct .pdf link)

The overall gist of the memo is that the OIG found that the FBI has not been following it's own internal policies about reporting employee misconduct.

In the memo, our Mr. Twersky is listed as:


Ronald Twersky
Deputy Assistant
Director Inspection Division
Federal Bureau of Investigation


Elsewhere, and recently:


Nancy McNamara

As assistant director in charge of the Washington Field Office, Ms. McNamara oversees the FBI’s second largest field office, responsible for protecting the nation’s capital and Northern Virginia.

She most recently served as the assistant director of the FBI’s Inspection Division.

Ms. McNamara began her career as a special agent in 1996 in the New York Field Office, where she investigated public corruption cases. She became a supervisory special agent for the applicant program in 2002 and for the public corruption/government fraud squad in the White-Collar Crime Branch in 2005. Later that year, she transferred to FBI Headquarters as an assistant inspector in the Inspection Division, leading teams that reviewed and assessed investigative programs in field offices, legal attachés, and Headquarters.

Ms. McNamara in the above excerpt is also CC'ed in the OIG memo linked above.

Did a search. Several FBI Special Agents have been investigated for everything from stealing, to groping. Most were criminally charged and found guilty.

The report referenced in this thread could be about retired Special Agent Bob Mueller, who's helping the Trump campaign.

Just a hunch based on past actions of the OIG with these cases. But I'm biased. Praying for the day when the liberal media personalities have on-air strokes.

Can you provide a source about Mueller ever having been a Special Agent?


If any one is interested in more speculation (as long as it makes sense), there's this:
oig.justice.gov...

Maybe he or she slept with a witness and kept contacting them. Maybe they divulged information in order to get there. Who knows, this is so vague, there are no names anywhere. There are not even names on that report to see who conducted it.

According to the FBI website, they currently employ 13,500 special agents, which means there are tens of thousands of retired ones. Who knows? There is no real information in any of these links, we can all just guess and argue.

Oh yeah you are definitely right.

It could be anyone.

But it is worth looking to see if there are any connections to other IG investigations.

Thanks for the link.

Notice the top story is a Senior DEA official.

This leads me to believe that had the story in the OP been about someone like Mueller, McCabe, comey, etc., it would have said Senior FBI official.

Instead of specifying Special Agent?

Yes, that would lead one to believe that it involves a retired Special Agent.

I know, but it's a special agent. It's not some high up that people are hoping for.

Here's an application for a special agent, it's basically an entry level position.

Become a Special Agent

And from reading the report that says inappropriate conduct with a witness - to me that sounds like one of the 10s of thousands of special agents Anthony Weiner-ed himself to a witness, does it not?

Findings of Misconduct by an FBI Special Agent-in-Charge for Engaging in an Inappropriate Romantic Relationship with a Subordinate and Misuse of a Government Vehicle



On one occasion, the SAC misused his official government vehicle in connection with the relationship, which also violated FBI policy.


oig.justice.gov...


Heh. Misuse.

Lol, and I was just coming back to post that this could be any number of special agents and not necessarily tied to anyone currently in the news.

Thanks for the obvious.
