Ex-Special Agent in Charge of Milwaukee’s FBI Office Accused of Pressuring subordinate to lie under oath
The former head of the Milwaukee FBI office is accused of urging an agent to commit perjury and grilling subordinates for talking with investigators, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Office of the Inspector General believes Teresa Carlson likely lied when she was questioned and may have violated federal law by telling an agent to lie under oath.
Despite the findings, the FBI declines to discuss whether she was disciplined, and the Justice Department opted not to prosecute.
Carlson is the acting deputy assistant director of Facilities and Logistics Services Division.
According to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Carlson “conducted herself unprofessionally and exhibited extremely poor judgment” when she allegedly told Special Agent Mark Crider to lie under oath.
