The Justice Department is investigating whether hundreds of FBI agents cheated on a test of new rules allowing the bureau to conduct surveillance and open cases without evidence that a crime has been committed.
The director of the FBI's Washington Field Office has rebuked former CIA analyst Robert Sutter for his recent refusal to help the FBI better understand China's intelligence activities.
Joseph Persichini said: "That's his personal opinion, and he's just one person in a community of thousands."
Mr. Persichini said the FBI will continue to seek information from multiple sources and will continue to request help from other academics and specialists.
