A HUGE new scandal is brewing within the FBI, as the Inspector General reveals that several employees may have taken bribes in exchange for leaking information to reporters.

Daily Caller Reports:

A bombshell inspector general report released Thursday revealed that several FBI employees improperly received gifts from reporters, in connection with possible leaks of sensitive information.

Although public details of these exchanges are scant, they could constitute prosecutable violations of federal gift-giving rules.

The gifts in question included “tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events.”

Gifting rules for executive branch officials are strict and exacting. The U.S. Office of Government Ethics provides that “executive branch employees may not solicit or accept gifts that are given because of their official positions or that come from certain interested sources (‘prohibited sources’).”

So far, it’s not clear whether anyone will be prosecuted by Sessions’ Department of Justice.
