2 F.B.I. Officials, Once Key Advisers to Comey, Leave the Bureau

I wonder why? People usually stay for the duration at the FBI. Is there something wrong at the FBI?

(From The New York Times)

Two top F.B.I. aides who worked alongside the former director James B. Comey as he navigated one of the most politically tumultuous periods in the bureau’s history resigned on Friday.

One of them, James A. Baker, was one of Mr. Comey’s closest confidants. He served as the F.B.I.’s top lawyer until December when he was reassigned as the new director, Christopher A. Wray, began installing his own advisers. Mr. Baker had been investigated by the Justice Department on suspicion of sharing classified information with reporters. He has not been charged.

The other aide, Lisa Page, advised Mr. Comey while serving directly under his deputy, Andrew G. McCabe. She was assailed by conservativesafter texts that she had exchanged with the agent overseeing the investigation into links between President Trump’s campaign and Russia were made public.

Adios. Swampos.
