America is a police state. The FBI is the nation’s Gestapo. It’s an instrument for systematically violating civil liberties. It’s a rogue agency operating unconstitutionally. Bureau secrecy and cover-up make it impossible to know the full extent of its lawlessness.…

Suspected thefts

These are among the cases in which a grand jury indictment says fired FBI agent Scott M. Bowman stole money after an anti-gang task force served search warrants on suspected drug dealers:
June 13, 2014: A task force searches an Azusa residence and seizes $10,982, which is turned over to Bowman the next day.
June 25, 2014: $4,600 is seized at an apartment in Ontario and turned over to Bowman.
Aug. 19, 2014: Hundreds of thousands of dollars are seized from a residence on Lakewood Drive in San Bernardino. Bowman stole thousands for himself, the indictment says, before turning over $366,800.

SPENDING SPREE

A grand jury indictment of fired FBI special agent Scott M. Bowman spent stolen drug money on these items:
$43,850: A used 2012 Dodge Challenger coupe
$27,500: A used Toyota Scion FR-S coupe
$17,000: New sound system, rims, tires and muffler for the Dodge
$9,612: New speakers, rims and tires for the Toyota
$15,000: Cosmetic surgery for his wife. Justice officials would not disclose the nature of the procedure.
Unknown amount: Bowman and his girlfriend reserved a suite at a luxury Las Vegas hotel/casino and paid $1,000 for tickets to a boxing match.
$2,353: New rims and a suede headliner for his personal vehicle
As an FBI special agent working in an anti-gang task force, Moreno Valley resident Scott M. Bowman had access to the stacks of cash that authorities seized in raids on drug dealers in the Inland and Los Angeles regions.
On Aug. 19, 2014, a grand jury indictment says, after securing hundreds of thousands of dollars discovered during the search of a San Bernardino drug house, Bowman and another FBI agent placed the cash in a safe in the FBI’s Riverside office.
But the next day, according to the indictment, instead of taking the entire haul to a company that counts such cash for law enforcement, Bowman stole a “substantial amount” for himself, which he later spent on a shopping spree that included cars, cosmetic surgery for his wife and a luxurious vacation for him and his girlfriend.
Bowman, 44, pleaded not guilty Thursday, June 4, in federal court in Riverside to three counts of conversion of property by a federal employee, three counts of obstruction of justice, two counts of money laundering, one count of falsification of records and one count of witness tampering, according to a news release from the Department of Justice.
He was released after posting $80,000 bail, a DOJ spokesman said.
Bowman’s actions could affect the outcomes of cases against the drug defendants, the U.S. Attorney’s Office acknowledged in a March letter to defense attorneys. One of those attorneys said he’s been contacted by people who have pleaded guilty and now want their cases re-examined.
“As alleged, former Agent Bowman put his own greed above the trust placed in him by the FBI and the American public,” said Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell said in a news release Thursday. “Corrupt law enforcement agents not only compromise those investigations in which they are involved, but also damage the reputations of fellow law enforcement officers who are dedicated to public service and the protection of all Americans.”
FALSE STORIES
Authorities believe that Bowman stole more than $100,000 that was seized while serving search warrants with the San Bernardino-based Gang Impact Team.
Bowman explained his purchases to law enforcement colleagues by saying that he had received a $97,000 advance on his inheritance from his sick father, the indictment said. But he had received no such gift, according to the indictment.
Bowman was fired March 1.
David Bowdich, FBI assistant director in charge in Los Angeles, said in an emailed statement that the FBI “took immediate steps to address the matter” when they received the allegations against Bowman. “FBI personnel are held to the highest standards, and misconduct of any kind is taken seriously, up to and including the potential for criminal charges.”
In the San Bernardino case, Bowman falsified an FBI accounting form and emailed an unidentified San Bernardino police detective in the task force “a false cover story” about the cash being mixed in together with cash from another seizure, in case the detective was asked to explain any discrepancies in the money Bowman turned in, the indictment said.
Bowman also gave the detective $2,000, the indictment said.
San Bernardino police Lt. Vicki Cervantes said Thursday that the FBI had informed Police Chief Jarrod Burguan that the FBI had not found any wrongdoing on the part of its detective.

Review: ‘J. Edgar Klezmer: Songs From My Grandmother’s F.B.I. Files’ Tells All at Here Arts Center

1 Share
The klezmer bandleader Eve Sicular is hardly a fan of J. Edgar Hoover, the F.B.I.’s first director, whose Cold War hunt for Communists put her grandmother in his sights. But he did keep meticulous records, and she can’t help being grateful for that.
“In a twisted archival way, Hoover did me a favor, making a scrapbook about Grandma,” Ms. Sicular says in her clever show “J. Edgar Klezmer: Songs From My Grandmother’s F.B.I. Files” — and could we pause for a moment, please, to savor that stellar title?
Featuring musicians from Ms. Sicular’s band, Isle of Klezbos, “J. Edgar Klezmer” is a kind of scrapbook, too. By turns playful and serious, it’s a musical piece of documentary theater assembled from old newspaper clippings, family photos, government documents and scavenged recollections about Adele Sicular, a New York physician who died in 1976, when her granddaughter was 14.
To the midcentury F.B.I., there was a whiff of subversion to this Russian-born Jewish doctor’s involvement with the Citizens Committee of the Upper West Side, a group whose name reliably cracked up the audience at Thursday night’s performance at Here Arts Center. Investigators interviewed neighbors and colleagues about Dr. Sicular’s loyalty to the United States.
A lively score — klezmer, jazz, boogie-woogie — is woven through the 60-minute show’s text, and when redacted documents are read aloud, blasts of musical notes replace the missing names. Smartly written and well structured, “J. Edgar Klezmer” draws clear parallels between the surveillance of Hoover’s America and our own, and it neatly avoids hagiography, thanks to a startling revelation by Ms. Sicular’s father, a character briefly in the show, that helps broaden the scope.
But the production, directed by Gwenyth Reitz, flattens the script. When Ms. Sicular is at her drum kit, playing with Shoko Nagai (piano) and Debra Kreisberg (clarinet and saxophone), she is in her element. But she is not an actor, and her discomfort at speaking her many lines is evident. The same is true of Melissa Fogarty, a lovely vocalist who is called on to act in multiple parts as well as to sing.
Yelena Shmulenson is the one actor in the cast, and she’s terrific. Her supple performance in a variety of roles suggests what this show could be, if actors were doing all the acting.

A serial sniper may be on the prowl in the Denver suburbs, where three people have been shot — two fatally — in the past six weeks, police said.
The latest attack occurred Wednesday night in Loveland, Colo., when William Connole, a 65-year-old cancer survivor, was fatally shot in the neck during a late-night walk.

FBI raids Aaron Schock's campaign office

1 Share
U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock speaks to reporters before meetings with constituents after a week in which he faced twin scandals Friday, Feb. 6, 2015, in Peoria Ill. AP
About a dozen law enforcement officials descended upon the local campaign office of former Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Illinois, on Thursday afternoon, removing boxes and other materials from the building.
According to local media reports, federal agents wearing FBI gear raided the central Illinois office over the course of six hours. They loaded boxes of documents, a computer, and other miscellaneous objects into trucks.
Officers on the scene reportedly referred all media queries to the U.S. attorney for the Central District of Illinois. The U.S. attorney's office declined to comment.
The FBI and the Justice Department opened an investigation in March into the former lawmaker's use of campaign and federal funds after months of press scrutiny over Schock's spending habits.
Schock, well-known for his social media accounts detailing costly travel, was considered a rising star in the Republican party. But the ex-congressman came under fire earlier this year after allegedly receiving reimbursements from the government after irregularities in reporting travel mileage and also for accepting improper gifts as a public official -- including a Capitol Hill office makeover inspired by "Downton Abbey" (Schock later said he would pay the interior decorator).
A federal grand jury convening in the state's capital is currently hearing testimony from former Schock aides about the ex-lawmaker's office and campaign expenses, as well as his relations with donors and other business dealings.
One aide, who was responsible for handling the lawmaker's travel and expense vouchers, testified this week in Springfield. A former paid intern has also been subpoenaed to testify in the criminal probe.
Schock resigned from Congress in late March after six years in office.
"The constant questions over the last six weeks have proven a great distraction that has made it too difficult for me to serve the people of the 18th District with the high standards that they deserve and which I have set for myself," Schock had said in a farewell speech on the House floor.
A primary election to fill Schock's seat is expected to conclude on July 7. A special general election will be held September 10.

Former FBI Special Agent Indicted for Theft of Drug Proceeds and Obstruction of Justice | OPA

1 Share
A former special agent of the FBI was indicted yesterday for allegedly stealing over $100,000 of drug proceeds seized during the execution of search warrants and obstructing justice by taking steps to hide his alleged theft.
Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Special Agent in Charge Angel D. Gunn of the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General’s Los Angeles Field Office made the announcement.
“As alleged, former Agent Bowman put his own greed above the trust placed in him by the FBI and the American public,” said Assistant Attorney General Caldwell.  “Corrupt law enforcement agents not only compromise those investigations in which they are involved, but also damage the reputations of fellow law enforcement officers who are dedicated to public service and the protection of all Americans.”
Scott M. Bowman, 44, of Moreno Valley, California, was charged in the Central District of California with three counts of conversion of property by a federal employee, three counts of obstruction of justice, two counts of money laundering, one count of falsification of records and one count of witness tampering.
According to allegations in the indictment, which was unsealed today, Bowman misappropriated over $100,000 of drug proceeds seized in June and August 2014 during the execution of three search warrants.  The defendant allegedly misappropriated these funds after they were transferred to his custody in his official capacity as a federal law enforcement officer.
The indictment alleges that Bowman used the stolen money for his own purposes, including spending $43,850 in cash to purchase a 2012 Dodge Challenger coupe, $27,500 in cash to purchase a 2013 Toyota Scion FR-S coupe and approximately $26,612 in cash to outfit these vehicles with new equipment including speakers, rims and tires.  According to the allegations in the indictment, the defendant also used approximately $15,000 of the misappropriated cash to pay for cosmetic surgery for his spouse, and opened a checking account into which he deposited approximately $10,665 of the stolen funds, a portion of which he used to pay for a weekend stay at a luxury hotel, casino and resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
According to the indictment, to conceal his misappropriation of the drug proceeds, Bowman allegedly falsified official FBI reports and other records.  Specifically, in connection with one of the seizures, Bowman allegedly endorsed an evidence receipt knowing that it did not accurately reflect the amount of cash seized and altered the same receipt by forging the signature of a police detective next to his own.
The indictment further alleges that Bowman made false representations to his colleagues regarding the disposition of certain seized drug proceeds.  In addition, Bowman allegedly sent an email to the detective whose signature Bowman had forged setting forth a detailed cover story that the detective should offer if asked about Bowman’s activities with respect to the seized drug proceeds.  According to the indictment, Bowman also allegedly provided the detective with a copy of the forged receipt so that the detective falsely could claim the forged signature as his own, if asked.
The charges contained in an indictment are merely accusations, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
This case was investigated by the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General and is being prosecuted by Trial Attorneys Robert J. Heberle and Lauren Bell of the Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section.

Cases dropped, more in trouble after FBI agent Scott Bowman arrested on theft charges

1 Share
LOS ANGELES – Drug charges against 14 people have been dropped and cases against dozens more defendants in California are in jeopardy following the arrest of an FBI agent who prosecutors say stole more than $100,000 of seized drug money, buying cars, plastic surgery for his wife and a trip to Las Vegas with his girlfriend.
Active cases against at least 61 defendants are currently under the microscope because of Scott Bowman, the former FBI special agent charged with obstruction of justice, money laundering, falsifying records and witness tampering, among others. Bowman, who was fired from the FBI in March, pleaded not guilty in federal court on Thursday.
Bowman’s attorney, Tony Raphael, didn’t respond to a message Friday.
One case that Bowman investigated – charging 14 people with a slew of drug and gun counts – was dismissed in December at the request of the U.S. Attorney’s Office. A defense attorney in the case said many of the defendants had been about to enter guilty pleas when the government asked that it be dropped without explanation.
It was only three months later that defense attorneys knew why: The U.S. Attorney’s Office sent out letters to dozens of attorneys in March saying Bowman was under criminal investigation.
“Here we had a rogue agent,” defense attorney David Kaloyanides said. “Clearly that’s a problem.”
Not only are current cases threatened, but any case Bowman has worked in 10 years as an agent in Southern California could result in overturned convictions, Kaloyanides and other defense attorneys said.
Neither the U.S. Attorney’s Office nor the FBI has released the number of investigations in which Bowman played a key role, though defense attorneys are actively seeking that material.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles declined to comment.
David Bowdich, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office, said in a statement that the agency took immediate steps after learning the allegations against Bowman. “FBI personnel are held to the highest standards, and misconduct of any kind is taken seriously, up to and including the potential for criminal charges,” Bowdich said.
According to the indictment against Bowman, which was unsealed Thursday, the agent had ready access to hundreds of thousands of dollars of cash seized during drug investigations.
In one instance on Aug. 20, Bowman is charged with stealing substantial amounts of drug money from sealed evidence bags locked in a safe at an FBI facility in Riverside, California. When the remaining money was counted, $366,800 was left, according to the indictment.
Later that day and continuing for about three weeks, Bowman went on a spending spree, the indictment says.
Bowman, 44, paid for two cars in $71,000 in cash and spent more than $26,000 on new speakers, rims, tires, suede lining, a muffler and other extras for the vehicles.
In early September, Bowman paid $15,000 in cash for cosmetic surgery for his wife. That same month, he took his girlfriend to Las Vegas, paying for a three-day stay at a luxury hotel suite and spending more than $1,000 for tickets to a boxing match, the indictment says.
When his colleagues starting asking questions, Bowman told them he got a nearly $100,000 advance on his inheritance from his sick father, the indictment said.
Bowman tried to cover up the thefts by falsifying official FBI reports and in one instance, forging a detective’s signature on a receipt, the indictment said.
Bowman, who had been assigned to a San Bernardino, California-based task force targeting gang-related crime, was fired in March while on an 18-month supervisory special agent assignment at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. Such positions are competitive and considered a promotion.
“This is an amazing turn of events,” said Ron Kaye, a defense attorney representing a client charged in a current drug case investigated by Bowman.
Kaye said he’s considering his options in the wake of Bowman’s indictment, including going after wiretap evidence that was secured on the word of Bowman.
“Essentially, (Bowman) is now unequivocally believed by the government to be a thief and a liar,” Kaye said. “Everything he has touched is now under the microscope.”
