A stunning investigation of bribery and corruption in Congress has spread to the CIA, ABC News has learned.
The CIA inspector general has opened an investigation into the spy agency’s executive director, Kyle “Dusty” Foggo, and his connections to two defense contractors accused of bribing a member of Congress and Pentagon officials.
The CIA released an official statement on the matter to ABC News, saying: “It is standard practice for CIA’s Office of Inspector General—an aggressive, independent watchdog—to look into assertions that mention agency officers. That should in no way be seen as lending credibility to any allegation.
“Mr. Foggo has overseen many contracts in his decades of public service. He reaffirms that they were properly awarded and administered.”
The CIA said Foggo, the No. 3 official at the CIA, would have no further comment. He will remain in his post at the CIA during the investigation, according to officials.
