Numerous FBI employees at all levels of the organization and with no official reason to be in contact with the media were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters. FBI personnel improperly received benefits from reporters including tickets to sporting events, golf outings, drinks and meals-Inspector General Report

6/14/18, "IG Report: FBI Officials Accepted Bribes From Media," tcth, sundance 

"On Page Xii of the IG report the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (DOJ-OIG) highlights numerous FBI officials who accepted bribes from multiple media outlets including: “tickets to sporting events”, “golf outings”, “drinks and meals” as well as exclusive invitations and admission to “nonpublic social events”.

The OIG investigative finding was disturbing enough to launch a separate set of investigations that will be included in follow-up reports."...

IG REPORT, p. xii "Improper Disclosure of  Non-Public Information"

"As we also describe in Chapter Twelve, among the issues we reviewed were allegations that Department and FBI employees improperly disclosed non-public information regarding the Midyear investigation [Hillary emails]. Although FBI policy strictly limits the employees who are authorized to speak to the media, we found that this policy appeared to be widely ignored during the period we reviewed.  

We identified numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization and with no official reason to be in contact with the media, who were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters. Attached to this report as Attachments E and F are two link charts that reflect the volume of communications that we identified between FBI employees and media representatives in April/May and October 2016. We have profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel that we have uncovered during our review.

In addition, we identified instances where FBI employees improperly received benefits from reporters, including tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events. We will separately report on those investigations as they are concluded, consistent with the Inspector General Act, other applicable federal statutes, and OIG policy. 

The harm caused by leaks, fear of potential leaks, and a culture of unauthorized media contacts is illustrated in Chapters Ten and Eleven of our report, where we detail the fact that these issues influenced FBI officials who were advising Comey on consequential investigative decisions in October 2016. 

[…] We do not believe the problem is with the FBI’s policy, which we found to be clear and unambiguous. Rather, we concluded that these leaks highlight the need to change what appears to be a cultural attitude among many in the organization."  (link to pdf – page Xii of executive summary)"" 

Comment: In Third World Toilets corruption is simply accepted. Formerly obscure FBI personnel are now sought after by Democrat activist media celebrities, plied with perks, and treated like powerful individuals capable of influencing government. FBI is corrupt because it hires people with weak characters. Who's going to go in there and change the "culture" so many are enjoying? No one. The FBI should be completely closed down. The political class has allowed this rogue operation of Third World backslappers to continue for decades. No one in the political class has the slightest concern that US taxpayers are forced to pay for all of it thus remaining the global laughing stock.
