Did anyone else hear about David Laufman quitting a week ago? I heard about him from a Hugh Hewitt podcast from Hewitt’s Friday show with a representative of Hillsdale College.
Who is David Laufman? He’s the Dept. of Justice, National Security Division, Deputy Asst. General in charge of counterintelligence, cyber security, counterespionage and export controls. And why does that matter? As The Conservative Treehouse explained, Laufman was involved with most aspects of the current controversy surrounding Robert Mueller’s investigation:
In his former position, Laufman would have been involved and hold knowledge of the FISA “Title-1” surveillance program initiated on target Carter Page and the “incidental” Trump campaign officials. Laufman would also have close contact with former Asst. Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr; husband of Fusion GPS employee Nellie Ohr.
