Former Chief of FBI’s Financial Crimes Section Joins House Probe of Trump’s Business Dealings

Patrick Fallon, the former chief of the FBI’s Financial Crimes Section, has been hired to help the House Intelligence Committee investigate President Trump’s financial dealings, two sources familiar with the move told The Daily Beast.

Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., hired Fallon, who started this week.
The committee is investigating whether Trump’s business dealings are influencing his decision as president, Schiff announced earlier this year.

“That pertains to any credible allegations of leverage by the Russians or the Saudis or anyone else,” Schiff told CNN.

Hiring Fallon was significant, said Frank Figliuzzi, former assistant director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division.

“The fact that the Committee has hired someone at the former senior executive service level from within the FBI’s Financial Crimes Section is significant, and to me denotes an effort to apply significant resources to examining and analyzing financial findings,” Figliuzzi said. “By the time you got to the head of the Financial Crimes section, you would have substantial white collar crime and global financial crime experience, both at the street level and the supervisory level. And his role at headquarters would have had him overseeing the bulk of all financial crime cases in the FBI.”
