An FBI official accepted sports tickets from a reporter, lied about it to the office and will leave his position without prosecution, the Justice Department’s inspector general revealed in a report Tuesday. The senior official’s name has not been disclosed.
When asked about the tickets, the official reportedly told the inspector general Michael Horowitz that the tickets were provided for free. Horowitz announced on Tuesday that the official had retired. However, in a move of utter hypocrisy, the agent will not be prosecuted for lying to the FBI.
