James Baker, the FBI's leading lawyer who was a confidante of fired FBI Director James Comey, has been reassigned from his post, as the agency's top personnel are under high scrutiny.
Baker told colleagues he will assume different duties for the bureau, the Washington Post reported.
Baker oversees the bureau's Office of General Counsel, and has received such awards as the George H.W. Bush Award for Excellence in counter-terrorism in 2006.
He also was the subject of a leak investigation over the summer after Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a crackdown on leakers.
