Description

CBS This Morning reported on allegations of a cover-up inside the State Department and revealed a practice by high level management at the agency of sweeping cases of alleged criminal behavior by employees under the rug. At the center of our story was an internal Inspector General (IG) memo obtained by CBS News that described in detail eight cases of alleged criminal misconduct where investigations were either never launched or halted by senior State Department officials. The author of the memo was upset that both senior State Department management as well as the IG's office was not acting on the quashed criminal investigations.
