How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Justice Department Blocks FBI from Conducting Full Investigation of 2 U.S. Senators

FBI agents investigating corruption have uncovered allegations of wrongdoing against two key U.S. senators – Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican Sen. Mike Lee – but there’s a big problem.

The Justice Department has prevented the FBI from launching a full investigation, the Washington Times reports.

The investigation, rather, is being led by one Republican and one Democratic state prosecutor in Utah.

Typically, corruption cases involving elected officials involve the Justice Department’s public integrity section.

But the Justice Department is declining the FBI’s request to use a federal grand jury and subpoenas to determine the accuracy of the allegations.

“There are allegations, but they are very serious allegations and they need to be looked at by somebody,” Sim Gill, a Democrat who is the elected chief prosecutor in Salt Lake County, told The Times. “If true, or even if asserted, they truly should be investigated and put to rest, or be confirmed.”
