DOJ Corporate Crime Watchdog Quits Over Trump Administration’s Conduct

A top Justice Department official who served as the corporate compliance watchdog has resigned because she said President Trump’s administration is violating the same government ethics laws that she’s expected to enforce on other businesses.

Hui Chen resigned in June, saying she can’t force companies to comply when Trump’s administration is doing the same thing.

She recently broke her silence in a LinkedIn post, first revealed by International Business Times

“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 wrote. “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 chair 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.”

Chen joined the Justice Department in 2015 to help the agency enforce criminal laws against corporations.
