The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General’s Office, which is supposed to investigate wrongdoing and corruption within DHS, is itself under investigation by the FBI, with its chief investigator, Thomas Frost, and his deputy, John Ryan, placed on administrative leave March 29. At the same time, a federal grand jury in Washington, DC, has subpoenaed all ten DHS agents in the McAllen, Texas, field office over allegations they falsified reports ahead of a DHS inspection to show “investigative activity” on misconduct cases when in fact little or nothing had been done. Investigators suspect that Frost, Ryan or someone else in the DHS IG office directed the McAllen agents to fake the reports.
