A former top official at the Department of Justice’s Fraud Division said she resigned from her post because President Donald Trump failed to abide by the ethics standards she was tasked to uphold and expressed her frustration on her LinkedIn page, The Daily Caller reports.
Last week, Hui Chen ended her silence about her decision to step down from her job as a corporate ethics consultant last month.
In her post, Chen said that she was not able to stomach the probe into President Donald Trump’s links with Russia and the president’s decision to dismiss FBI Director James Comey.
She said that the decision to resign was not easy because she “liked the importance of the work” and she “loved the people” she worked with at the DOJ.
She also said she left the agency so she could participate in protest activities, which she could not do as a government employee because of the Hatch Act.
Chen wrote, “I believe it has never been more important for every individual to speak and act on their conscience and belief.”
