Firm That Vetted Snowden, Navy Yard Shooter Accused of Bilking Taxpayers Out of Millions of Dollars

The contractor that vetted NSA leaker Edward Snowden and the Navy Yard shooter has cheated taxpayers out of millions of dollars for unfinished background checks, the Washington Times reports, citing a Justice Department filing.

In fact, investigators allege USIS received $11.7 million in performance awards from 2008 to 2010.

But that work was never finished, the DOJ reported.

USIS engaged in the practice of dumping in order to meet budgeted goals and, therefore, increase its revenue and profits,” Justice Department attorneys James Dubois and Melissa Handrigan wrote in the complaint.
