Brief Executive Summary
Starting in 2015, the Committee received credible allegations of misconduct involving senior-level officials, and retaliation against whistleblowers within the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). This majority staff report documents the Committee's findings of obtained documents and testimony substantiating many of the allegations that Senior TSA officials engaged in recurrent misconduct with minimal consequences. The committee also found TSA leadership inappropriately used involuntary directed reassignments to retaliate against disfavored employees and whistleblowers, among other tactics.
