Senior Justice Department Official Suddenly Resigns
February 8, 2018 • by streiff
A senior Justice Department official has decided to hit the bricks for “personal reasons.”
A Justice Department official who helped oversee the controversial probes of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russian interference in the 2016 election stepped down this week.
David Laufman, an experienced federal prosecutor who in 2014 became chief of the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section, said farewell to colleagues Wednesday. He cited personal reasons.
His departure from the high-pressure job comes as President Trump and his Republican allies have stepped up attacks on the Justice Department, the FBI and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III for their handling of the Russia probe.
“It’s tough to leave a mission this compelling and an institution as exceptional as the Department of Justice,” said Laufman, 59. “But I know that prosecutors and agents will continue to bring to their work precisely what the American people should expect: a fierce and relentless commitment to protect the national security of the United States.”
Laufman first came to the general public’s attention in September 2016, when it was revealed that he was a member of the team that interviewed Hillary Clinton, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin over their mishandling of classified information.
