Ex-FBI Agent Tried to Sell Papers

We've seen enough leakers lately—but the attempted sale of documents is a new one. Authorities announced on Friday that former FBI special agent Robert Lustyik has been accused of attempting to sell confidential documents from the bureau to a Bangladeshi man seeking to harm a political rival. The plot, which Lustyik allegedly hatched with a friend, began in 2011, when he was still with the FBI. ““I will work my magic ...We r sooooooo close,” Lustyik texted his co-conspirator. The two documents—a suspicious activity report and a memo on the buyer's rival—were allegedly set to go for at least $1,000.
