Senior ATF official Scott Sweetow is coming under scrutiny.

The Hill reports that the Justice Department is investigating allegations he may have accessed the personal data of other agency employees and sent the info to his personal email account. The Hill cites CNN as the reporting the matter.

“It appears somebody is actively seeking to damage my reputation,” Sweetow said in a statement to CNN.

“While I respect your desire to look into items which may cross your desk, other than to confirm I am a SES [senior executive service] agent assigned to our National HQ and what limited details I place in social media, I am very guarded about my personal life, and any work products in which I may be working. Because of this, I would direct you to our office of Public and Government Affairs in our National HQ,” he added.
