FBI agents investigated for shooting at Oregon militia member | TheHill
An FBI agent who in January fired at a member of the militia group that took over an Oregon wildlife refuge is under investigation for possibly lying about the incident.
Four other FBI agents, officials said Tuesday, are also suspected of lying and helping to cover up the events surrounding the shooting, The Oregonian reports.
“The Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (OIG) is investigating the actions of the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team in connection with the shooting in Oregon on January 26, 2016,” Inspector General Michael Horowitz said in a statement.
“Under the Inspector General Act, the DOJ OIG has jurisdiction to independently review allegations of FBI misconduct. We look forward to working closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oregon, as well as state and local officials as we review this matter.”
This is a felony. But will anything be done?
