Justice Department Official and crime expert, Hui Chen announced she quit, reasoning it’s too difficult to hold suspected criminals to standards the President will not meet himself.
Hui Chen, who was a member in the fraud unit in the Department of Justice laid her reason flat out for quitting her position as compliance counsel. Chen posted on LinkedIn days ago saying demanding a basic standard of behavior that is not enforced in the White House is impossible.
“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,” Chen said in a post.
“Even as I engaged in… 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,” Chen wrote. “Those are conducts I would not tolerate seeing in a company, yet I worked under an administration that engaged in exactly those [conducts]. I wanted no more part in it.”

“Nothing matters to me more than working to restore the notions of integrity, decency, and intellect back into our government,” Chen concluded.
