Findings buried of sexual misconduct by federal enforcement

An inspector general appointed by then President Donald Trump ordered the omission of findings of domestic violence and sexual misconduct by officers in a report on the enforcement agencies of the Department on Homeland Security. One agency settled a complaint with a hefty payment, $255,000 in one case, but there was no evidence of an investigation or discipline of the person responsible.

The same inspector general, Joseph V. Cuffari, also stymied investigations of the Secret Service’s role in riots outside the White House in 2020 and the spread of Covid-19 in the service. (Rolling Stone, April 8, 2022, by William Vaillancourt)
