Top DOJ Official Involved In Clinton And Russia Probes Steps Down

An senior Justice Department official who was involved in oversight of the Hillary Clinton email investigation as well as the Russian interference probe has stepped down, citing personal reasons.

David Laufman, 59, was the DOJ's chief of the National Security Division's Counterintelligence and Export Control Section - working his way up the FBI ranks after beginning his career in 1980 as a CIA analyst. Laufman obtained a law degree from Georgetown University.

“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.”

Im really sick and tired of seeing these individuals that have committed high crimes against America just walk away unpunished, unaccountable. Dosent this leave the door open for the next replacement to be even more vile, more corrupt?

I'm with you, 609, this should not "excuse" him from prosecution in any way, but it seems to becoming the norm. He should be tossed in jail with the rest of them.

Unpunished, yes but rich too! With another million dollar pension.
