Head of the FBI’s Milwaukee office, Teresa Carlson, is temporarily working at the Facilities and Logistics Services Division at headquarters in Washington D.C. while authorities investigate claims that she pressured a subordinate to commit perjury, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Still, Carlson remains the special agent in charge of the Milwaukee office, according to FBI spokesman Leonard Peace.
Carlson is accused of pressuring a subordinate to “come down on the side of the government” in a trial by a former Army Ranger who said the FBI discriminated against him because he had lost one of his hands in a training mission.
The Office of Inspector General is investigating Carlson.
