FBI Agent Blasts Congressional Oversight In NY Times, Doesn’t Mention He Was Comey’s Assistant

A man named Josh Campbell announced recently that he’s leaving the FBI. Of course, it’s all the fault of this darn memo and people in Congress asking too many questions. He even wrote about it in the New York Times:

Why I Am Leaving the F.B.I.

One of the greatest honors of my life was walking across the stage at the F.B.I. Academy and receiving my special agent badge from the director at the time, Robert Mueller. After 21 weeks of intensive training, my class swore an oath and became federal agents entrusted with the solemn duty of protecting Americans and upholding the Constitution.

After more than a decade of service, which included investigating terrorism, working to rescue kidnapping victims overseas and being special assistant to the director, I am reluctantly turning in my badge and leaving an organization I love. Why? So I can join the growing chorus of people who believe that the relentless attacks on the bureau undermine not just America’s premier law enforcement agency but also the nation’s security. My resignation is painful, but the alternative of remaining quiet while the bureau is tarnished for political gain is impossible.

Unfortunately, Campbell didn’t disclose the fact that he used to be a special assistant to Comey:

That seems like kind of an important thing to leave out.
