Deep state FBI spokesman bribed with baseball tickets?

The Daily Caller News Foundation has a Freedom of Information Act scoop about the FBI spokesman who was exposed earlier as having taken baseball tickets from a CNN reporter, something that violated the FBI’s tough standards on taking gifts.

The FBI’s top press officer during the Hillary Clinton and Trump-Russia investigations accepted tickets to a Washington Nationals game from a CNN correspondent and lied about it repeatedly during interviews with the Justice Department’s inspector general, according to a report obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Michael Kortan, who served as assistant director of public affairs, displayed a “lack of candor” during multiple interviews under oath with the DOJ watchdog about how he obtained the tickets, who he went with, and whether he reimbursed the CNN journalist, according to the report.
