Six FBI Agents Investigated for Hiring Prostitutes and Trafficking Drugs During Overseas Assignments

Six FBI agents were investigated for allegedly soliciting prostitution, trafficking drugs and failing to report unofficial interactions for foreign nationals while on assignment overseas, a Justice Department watchdog says.

The Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General released an investigative report on Tuesday that accuses four FBI officials of soliciting, procuring and accepting sex from prostitutes while on duty in a foreign country and lying about it.

A fifth official also allegedly “solicited commercial sex overseas” and a sixth official knew about their alleged misconduct but didn’t report it, according to the report.

The alleged actions by all six of the unidentified FBI officials are in violation of Justice Department and FBI policies, according to the report.

Of the five officials accused of misconduct, two resigned, two retired and one was removed while the inspector general was investigating the incidents.
