Obama technology official’s office raided by FBI; employee charged in bribery sting

WTOP reporting:

The FBI is 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.

There are at least 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.

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.

Here’s the DC OCTO website.
The WaPo called Kundra D.C.’s “kinetic tech czar.”
Here’s the announcement of his appointment to the Obama administration
