Justice Dept. and FBI Personnel Changes Amid Probes
There’s been a flurry of high level personnel changes within the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI starting at the beginning of Campaign 2016 and amid multiple probes into Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump-Russia, and intelligence officials’ alleged misbehavior in those investigations.
In the year leading up to the election year, then-FBI Director James Comey twice replaced the heads of Counterintelligence at both the Washington D.C. and New York Field Offices, and named a new head of FBI Counterintelligence.
Today, there are overlapping investigations underway including:
Congressional investigations into alleged Russian interference.
Congressional investigations into allegedly improper FBI and DOJ surveillance activities.
Congressional investigations into anti-Trump “dossier.”
Inspector General investigation into FBI and DOJ anti-Trump leaks.
Special Counsel investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion.
