Bill Priestap, the assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, is retiring by the end of the year.

Priestap was among the bureau’s top officials tasked with overseeing investigations involving the 2016 presidential campaign, The Wall Street Journal reports

The 20-year veteran of the bureau began his career investigating organized crime and drug cases in Chicago before ascending the ranks following the Sept. 11, 2o01, terrorist attacks.

A person familiar with the retirement said Priest’s departure has nothing to do with the controversies surrounding the presidential election investigations.

He “became eligible to retire and has chosen to do so after 20 years of service,” the FBI said in a statement.

FBI Denies Russian Spy Was Getting Closer to Obama’s Inner Circle

A controversy is brewing over the Russian spy ring the feds busted up in 2010.

USA Today reports that the FBI is denying a report that the feds shut down the probe into the spy ring because one of the spies, the glamorous Anna Chapman, was “edging closer to President Obama’s inner circle.”

The FBI denied that allegation in a report that a top counter intelligence official during a BBC interview made that suggestion.

USA TODAY reported that the FBI issued a statement on the matter: “Mr. Figliuzzi’s comments to BBC were consistent with and confined to the information outlined in the criminal complaint that was filed nearly two years ago. There is no allegation or suggestion in the complaint that Anna Chapman or anyone else associated with this investigation attempted to seduce a U.S. Cabinet official.”
