Econintersect: U.S. Investigation Services (USIS), a private corporation that advertizes itself as “the leader in federal background investigations” has been charged by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) of massive violations of the False Claims Act (FCA). The charges do not relate to the creation of falsified security clearance data for the government but for presenting the falsified work for payment. The company had supplied security data for Edward Snowden (NSA documents leaks) and Aaron Alexis (Washington Navy Yard shooter).
The DOJ claims that ISIS was paid for delivering 665,000 cases of falsified security data between 2008 and 2012. The specific charge in the DOJ complaint is that ISIS
“knowingly makes, uses, or causes to be made or used, a false record or statement to get a false or fraudulent claim paid or approved by the Government.”
So the possibility that the actions constitute treason is not part of the complaint. Only the attempt to get paid by the government for treason is being charged.
