full title - Rod Rosenstein’s Right-Hand-Man Who Oversees Mueller Probe Abruptly Resigning from Justice Department

The Justice Department’s senior-most career attorney, Associate Deputy Attorney General Scott Schools, is planning to step down for a job in the private sector, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Schools works under Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and has had a significant role helping manage special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

NPR previously reported his departure.

As the highest-ranking career official, Schools has served as a key adviser on many sensitive matters within the department, including the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and document production issues with Capitol Hill. Two other sources confirmed to CNN that Schools was not forced out of the department, but rather received a unique opportunity

“”As the highest-ranking career official, Schools has served as a key adviser””

Highest ranking - where? What does that mean?

Nobody puts in 27 years towards a government pension and walks away unless massive amounts of cash are offered.

The article is about the DOJ. The top people are all appointed, like Sessions and Mueller. He’s the highest one who is in a professional civil servant, not appointed by the President.

Bingo!

...received a unique opportunity

A unique opportunity to keep his mouth shut, take the money and enjoy his family.

The smart rats are the ones who leave the sinking ship before they’re sucked under with it.

Run. Hide, Burrow in. Take a low profile.

Anything to avoid answering investigators’ questions.

So few leaks out of the Muller project. They’re either airtight with their info, or they have nothing.

If people start leaving, it’s time for the size 22 woman to start singing.
