Horowitz’s team reviewed Paarmann’s communications from 2012 through 2017, which showed “extensive contacts” with members of the media, especially in 2016 and early 2017, laying out interactions with at least six reporters. These contacts included hundreds of texts, calls, and emails; over a dozen rounds of golf; private drinks and dinners; a media member’s housewarming party where Paarmann brought wine as a gift; and a $225-ticket dinner free of charge thanks to a member of the media, in violation of FBI rules.
