Elite Surveillance Team Accuses FBI of Nepotism, Favoritism at Expense of Investigations

Members of FBI surveillance teams are getting fed up with what they say are internal politics and nepotism that are distracting from the mission of tracking terrorists, spies and mobsters, The Washington Times reports.

The newspaper reviewed FBI memos that showed at least three relatives of FBI supervisors landing jobs on the elite surveillance team. Two were “fast-tracked to full special agent status,” The Times wrote.

Agents with more experience are being passed up by politically connected officials.

One longtime surveillance team member is even seeking whistleblower protection as he explains the issue to the Justice Department’s inspector general and the Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

When the whistleblower launched complaints, he said he was given a poor personnel review.
