Misconduct at the highest levels of the Pentagon declined over a five-year period, the Defense Department Inspector General told Congress on Wednesday, USA Today reported.

Glenn Fine told the House Armed Services Committee's personnel subcommittee that there were 590 substantiated allegations of misconduct among generals, admirals and top civilian personnel from 2013-2017, the newspaper reported.

Of those 590, there was a peak of 167 cases in 2013 and a low of 58 in 2017, USA Today reported.

Further, nearly 50 percent of those 590 allegations were personal misconduct or ethical violations, Fine told the subcommittee.

Fine, however, testified that inappropriate relationships between top brass and subordinates remains a cause for concern, USA Today reported.

"The negative effects are even greater," personnel subcommittee chair Rep. Mike Coffman said.
