Greg Bower, a former top prosecutor who currently is the FBI’s top liaison with Congress during its investigation into Russian election meddling, has been cited for misconduct in an 8-year-old sex discrimination case.
While Bower was in charge of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Nevada from January 2008 to October 2009, a former female prosecutor was subjected to sexual discrimination and retaliation, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. 
An administrative judge said Brower acted hostilely toward a prosecutor after she alleged he had made a sexist comment.
“While acts of discrimination and retaliation are no doubt common within the federal service, it is extremely rare to see such a finding against the U.S. attorney’s office, which is charged with upholding the laws of this country,” said Las Vegas attorney Adam Levine, who has represented clients in the federal equal employment opportunity process. “If any agency should be aware of the prohibition against retaliation, it is the U.S. attorney’s office.”
Then-FBI Director James Comey hired Bower as deputy counsel last year.
