Top crime watchdog quits because she felt holding businesses accountable for ethical violations while Donald Trump is in office was hypocritical.

Courtesy of  New York Magazine:

Until late last month, former federal prosecutor Hui Chen worked in the Justice Department’s fraud section, ensuring that corporations followed federal ethics laws. She started the job in the fall 2015, but in the last six months it became impossible to conduct her duties without feeling as if she was “shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic,” she recently wrote on LinkedIn. So she quit, and she blames the White House: 

First, trying to hold companies to standards that our current administration is not living up to was creating a cognitive dissonance that I could not overcome. To sit across the table from companies and question how committed they were to ethics and compliance felt not only hypocritical, but very much like shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic. Even as I engaged in those questioning and evaluations, on my mind were the numerous lawsuits pending against the President of the United States for everything from violations of the Constitution to conflict of interest, the ongoing investigations of potentially treasonous conducts, and the investigators and prosecutors fired for their pursuits of principles and facts. Those are conducts I would not tolerate seeing in a company, yet I worked under an administration that engaged in exactly those conduct. I wanted no more part in it. 

As a compliance expert in DOJ’s fraud section, Chen essentially served as a corporate crime watchdog. She helped ensure that companies made changes to the policies that resulted in their prosecution and then monitored the effectiveness of those changes.

Totally get it. It's sort of like being a firefighter in a town where the fire chief is a pyromaniac.

Of course with Chen out that means that nobody is watching the candy store, and I think we all know that even IF Trump decides to replace her it will be with somebody who is completely blind to unethical behavior by corporations.  

If you ever before wondered just how much damage one president could do in only one term, sit back and watch, because you are about to have that question answered in spades.

    Don't be surprised if Tillerson ends up quitting without notice before long. He's had it up to his forehead.

    POTUS pushing to change plan from confronting PUTIN about election meddling to asking him if they did it. McMaster is not amused.

    Seeing as how it's only been six months, I can't even get my head around a term. Someone needs to stop this once and for all.

    Being mad because people are mean to you on twitter is not an excuse for having a bad attitude toward world leaders Mr. President.
