A federal agent on suspension since May is awaiting trial after being accused of damaging an FBI investigation by having a romantic relationship with a Syrian businessman who is suspected of being a terrorist, according to reports.
Authorities say the businessman threw a birthday party for the agent, identified as Leatrice Malika De Bruhl-Daniels, 45, and paid for her vacation in Greece, the Houston Chronicle reported.
