WASHINGTON - Two officials in the D.C.'s Office of the Chief Technology Officer have been arrested in a federal bribery sting, sources tell WTOP.
D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer employees Sushil Bansal and 40-year-old Yusuf Acar have been arrested, sources tell WTOP.
Acar was taken into custody Thursday morning by FBI agents at his home in Northwest D.C.
The FBI is now serving a search warrant at the office of D.C.'s Chief Technology Officer, WTOP has learned.
"We are there as part of a continuing ongoing criminal investigation," FBI Washington Field Office spokesperson Katherine Schweit tells WTOP.
Schweit would not comment on the details of the investigation.
More than a dozen FBI agents - including evidence technicians - at the office, located at 1 Judiciary Square on 4th Street in Northwest, WTOP's Mark Segraves reports.
Most of the employees have been told to go home. Other employees have been segregated into a waiting room.
Segraves reports the FBI's search has expanded from 9th floor offices to 10th floor offices.
A spokesman for D.C.'s U.S. Attorney tells WTOP he cannot discuss the investigation, as it is currently sealed.
On March 5, President Barack Obama named D.C. Chief Technology Officer Vivek Kundra as the federal government's chief information officer.
Kundra's last day was March 4.
Kundra, who was in charge of technology in the District since 2007, has been a consultant to Obama since he won the election.
Next on the list 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue???
What was it Hillary Clinton always used to say? “I don’t know anything about that.”
It seems, however, that Obama’s “scientists” are crooks!
Meanwhile Øbama is out to lunch, having some wagyu beef no doubt.
I don’t recall.....
Chief Technology Officer have been arrested in a federal bribery sting,Yep sounds like the obama team.
Well well, wouldn’t that be nice if Obama’s stinking paw prints are found all over this?
Impeached after 3 months in office... Sounds nice!
Yep,, change alright...
Anyone with a brain saw this coming.
Oh no! This is gonna stress Obama out so bad, he’ll need to take three weeks off and piss off the Canadian Chief of State.
This is confusing because it’s poorly written. Kundra WAS chief technology officer until March 4; now he’s chief information officer as of March 5? Thus, he’s no longer associated with the office that was raided? If so, the raid wasn’t “at Obama appointee’s office” but at his former office. Am I right, or am I missing something?
Gotta follow the money on this one. It may bring in a much bigger prize.
The most transparent administration in history huh? Tax cheats, officials engaged in bribery scandals.
Oh well, America has gotten what she voted for, THE CHICAGO WAY!
I seriously doubt it. The Chief Sock Puppet doesn't even get to pick out his suit in the morning let alone make adult decisions.
Only problem is:
He’s been out to lunch for some 52 days.
Change we can believe in.
He was DC’s chief technology officer, before Obama appointed him to be federal chief technology officer. Two different offices and posts.
