Is this still going on? We here blockbuster stories of corruption in our government. It’s reported on with a big splash and a major headline and then nothing. We don’t ever get reports of anyone being held to account – few get fired, and no one goes to prison.
Have we heard any follow up on whether our premier investigative service has been straightened out, or is the for sale sign still out.
This report is from 2018, yet for many, it may be the first we’ve heard.
Have we had an update since, or has it gone back to business as usual, regardless of who is in the Whitehouse.

FBI: Hundreds of Bureau Agents Took Bribes from CNN, NY Times, NBC News and More; Wray Looks the Other Way to Protect Media Partners
Access to the FBI is for sale.
Concert tickets. Expensive private dinners. NFL tickets. Parties on booze cruises. Discounts on travel.
FBI insiders said more than 60 agents in D.C. alone have been nailed for taking gifts from the news media. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said earlier this week about 50 FBI agents took 300 free gifts from news media.
However, Horowitz failed to stipulate that number is ONLY in Washington D.C. which covers one field office and FBI headquarters. The Inspector General did not examine the FBI’s other field offices, officials said. And the problem of taking free gifts for Intel is rampant, officials said.
New York. Los Angeles. New Haven. Philadelphia. The list goes on in the FBI’s 55 other field offices.
And so does the corruption. Outright bribery.
FBI sources who spoke to True Pundit divulged the names of three media outlets: NY Times, CNN and NBC News as having surfaced in recent external investigations. But there are dozens more, large and small.
FBI Director Christopher Wray wants this the issue of bribery and the FBI to disappear from news headlines, yet he has not launched an internal review nationwide to determine how rampant this problem is inside the FBI, sources said.
Why no national review by the Inspector General’s office?
Wray doesn’t want to go there, officials said.
