Wasn't his boss who caught him, it was a IG audit who turned it over almost immediately.

But what were the details?  Was he caught because they questioned something like the travel expenses for his office, and the paper trail lead to his office door?

Guys are always doing that on TV shows to pick up chicks. Hey baby, did you know I'm an international spy?

While at the EPA, Beale claimed that he was secretly working for the CIA on the side, allowing him to miss days from work, take extravagant trips and stay in posh hotels across the world.
He must have been really essential at EPA. No one noticed whenever he wasn't at work?
