Six former officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation may be in trouble due to an investigation conducted by the Department of Justice.
The investigation by the department's Office of Inspector General found evidence to support allegations that four of the FBI officials solicited, procured, and accepted commercial sex overseas, while a fifth official reportedly solicited commercial sex overseas, in violation of DOJ and FBI policies. All five officials "failed to report their own misconduct and the misconduct of others in connection with the procurement of commercial sex," with a sixth official allegedly failing to report suspected violations by other FBI officials, according to the OIG's investigative summary.
Four of the officials "lacked candor about their interactions with prostitutes and other misconduct during OIG compelled interviews and compelled polygraph examinations," with one of those officials making false statements in an OIG interview when the official denied having engaged in sex acts with a prostitute, the summary read.

Additionally, one of the FBI officials allegedly provided another official a package containing approximately 100 white pills to deliver to a foreign law enforcement officer. The summary does not specify what type of pills were delivered.
Of the five officials being investigated, two resigned, two retired, and one was removed. All five officials stopped working for the FBI while the OIG’s investigation was ongoing, the summary reveals.

The OIG has completed its investigation and provided its report to the FBI for appropriate action, according to the summary.
A similar incident occurred in April 2012, when members of former President Barack Obama's Secret Service detail faced misconduct allegations over "involvement with prostitutes" in Colombia. Those agents were recalled.
