- The Department of Justice found four FBI agents had sex with prostitutes while working overseas and then lied about it during internal investigations
- Internal investigation found the officers violated FBI and DOJ policies which prohibit the ‘solicitation of prostitution’
- Fifth agent also found to have tried to get a prostitute but failed in their attempt
- The behavior was uncovered through a series of interviews and polygraph tests
- Out of the five agents, two quit, two others retired while a fifth was ‘removed’
A Department of Justice investigation has found four FBI officials had sex with prostitutes while on assignment overseas while a fifth agent attempted to, but failed.
The findings go directly against policies of how FBI agents should behave with the policies of the Bureau and the DOJ outright banning employees or agents paying for sex at any time.
The investigation found the officials ‘lacked candor’ in failing to report their involvement or each others’ involvement in soliciting sex with prostitutes.
Additionally, one of the FBI officials was found to have lied to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) which was conducting the investigation.

Internal investigation found the officers violated FBI and DOJ policies which prohibit the ‘solicitation of prostitution’
The agent took a polygraph test during which they denied having engaged in any sexual acts with a prostitute.
‘The OIG investigation further found that five officials failed to report contact or relationships with foreign nationals, including foreign nationals from whom they procured commercial sex, in violation of FBI policies,’ the OIG said in a summary of the investigation’s findings.
On top of violating the FBI’s strict policies on sex, another agent then failed to report that he gave a police officer overseas, a ‘package containing approximately 100 white pills.’
The report does not detail what the pills were but again the FBI noted the official ‘lacked candor’ when the agent lied and denied ‘observing or placing pills’ in a package to be delivered to a foreign officer.
A sixth FBI official who knew about the alleged misconduct was also found to have broken the rules after ‘failing to report suspected violations’.
The inspector general’s office has referred its report to the FBI ‘for appropriate action.’
Out of the five agents solicited sex, ‘two resigned, two retired, and one was removed’ while the investigation was still ongoing.
It is not known what happened to the sixth FBI official.
