A DOJ official named David Laufman has announced he’s stepping down for personal reasons. Does that make your ears go up a little bit? It seems like more than a coincidence, considering he worked on the Hillary and Russia investigations.
The Daily Caller reports:
DOJ Official Who Worked On Clinton, Russia Investigations Steps Down For Personal Reasons
The Department of Justice official who interviewed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as part of the investigation into her emails is leaving the agency, he announced on Wednesday.
David Laufman, who leads the DOJ’s counterintelligence division, is leaving the DOJ for “personal reasons,” according to The Washington Post.
In addition to working on the investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information, Laufman has also worked on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
On the Clinton investigation, he sat in on interviews with the former secretary of state and several of her aides, including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan.
He was joined in those interviews by Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who is currently embroiled in a scandal over politically charged text messages.
Strzok’s texts suggest a less than amicable relationship with Laufman, who served as chief of the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.
It really seems like there’s more to this story than we’re hearing.
