BREAKING: DOJ OIG Releases Report Showing FBI Spends $42 Million a Year on Secret Informants – And At Least One Was a Child Sex Offender!
A report released yesterday by the DOJ IG shows that the FBI is corrupt, mismanaged and sick. The level of FBI mismanagement under the past three FBI Directors (Mueller, Comey and Wray) is atrocious. The FBI spends on average $42 million a year on secret informants with at least one being a child sex offender.
The Department of Justice Inspector General released a report yesterday that covered FBI activities with special informants. The report entitled, “Audit of Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Management of It’s Confidential Human Source Validation Processes“.
IG Horowitz released a video of the report in a tweet yesterday –

The results of the report are simply shocking!
The FBI was led by crooked cops Robert Mueller and James Comey. Andrew McCabe was the interim FBI Director before the current FBI Director, Chris Wray, took the helm. It is no wonder with such corrupt leadership that the FBI is in such a mess.
The IG report states that the FBI has spent nearly $300 million between 2012 and 2018 on payments to Confidential Human Sources (CHSs). We don’t know the actual spend each year we only know that it averages $42 million a year. It could be that the FBI spent $250 million in 2016 and little the other years. We really don’t know how much was annually spent or to whom, we only know that the amount is extreme –
We also know that the FBI was not properly validating its CHSs. The FBI didn’t comply with its own policies and procedures for managing long-term CHSs. There wasn’t enough people to manage the validation process and so some long-term CHSs may have been assigned to one FBI individuals for years.
A committee consisting of DOJ and FBI individuals did not comply with guidelines regarding CHSs and put pressure on a few HSRC members to keep up. As a result of not reviewing FBI CHSs on a timely basis some CHSs remained active when they should have been closed. The IG states that one individual was a child sex offender and the FBI didn’t believe the individual’s benefits “outweighed the associated risks” –
One has to wonder if the child sex offender was the ‘star witness’ from the Mueller investigation that we pointed out in July, by the name of George Nader? We reported –
According to a 3-count indictment unsealed Friday, Nader was charged earlier in July for possessing child pornography and for traveling with a minor to engage in illegal sexual acts.
Nader is accused of transporting a 14-year-old European boy to the United States for sex in the year 2000….
If the individual referred to in the report was George Nader one has to wonder if the IG reported this because he was already a known informant and child sex offender?
The next item in the Executive Summary in the report related to the CHS validation process. The controls were so bad that there is a risk that the CHSs are not adequately scrutinized or prioritized –
A final highlight from the IG report related to phones provided by the FBI to informants. The practices varied amongst field offices on whether these phones were an acceptable method for communicating with CHSs –
This point makes you wonder about the recent phones that were reportedly recovered that were used by Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor. Two phones were recently reported as in the possession of the DOJ that were used by Joseph Mifsud. Mifsud is connected to General Mike Flynn and George Papadopoulos set ups in the UK in 2015 and 2016.
Finally, the FBI was scolded after its debacle with gangster Whitey Bulger who the Boston FBI used as an informant. Young Robert Mueller is related to this incident. The IG noted this in the report –
The FBI needs a total overhaul. Some rightfully suggest shutting it down and starting over. This may be the best thing to do. Certainly current Director Wray isn’t doing anything to address the massive corruption that exists in the FBI today.
