Alleged Security Violation Found During DHS Office Search

Brian Sulc, executive director of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Transnational Organized Crime Mission Center in the Office of Intelligence and Analysis, was placed on administrative leave and is under investigation, reports MSN, quoting a story in Rolling Stone. Sulc allegedly brought a personal device into the secure office, where it is not permitted. Sulc has not been charged with a crime. Sulc was responsible for assessments for some of the top matters the department handles, including border security and the opioid epidemic.


The Rolling Stone report says that Sulc was escorted from his office once law enforcement arrived after 4 p.m. on Monday and was brought to a different part of the DHS complex to be questioned. Sulc's office was reportedly sealed with police tape, and evidence seals were put around the door and its keyhole. DHS has been under scrutiny from Congress for its handling of immigration and policy on border security. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday while House Republicans appeared to lay the groundwork for his impeachment.
