Gotta admit, that's pretty damn funny. You would think he would learn.... Nope. Typical democrat.

A senior Justice Department official recently flagged by a U.S. senator in an FBI whistleblower probe into alleged politicization of prosecutions played a key role in the Lois Lerner IRS scandal a decade ago in which conservative Tea Party groups were improperly targeted for scrutiny, government emails and congressional evidence shows.

So Richard Pilger resigned from the DOJ in 2020 but is now back in the same position? Nothing fishy there.

Gubmint jobs.... Gotta love them...

Almost 20 years ago I had a job in Career Field Management for a government agency. What I found out is that while we put forth recommendations from on high about career progression and suggested gates/standards for people to hit along the way during their careers in order to progress and be promoted, ultimately even in the government all hiring is local. It only takes one hiring authority to not play along for stuff like this to happen and no one wants to limit the ability to hire talent from outside the government so recommendations never become requirements. That isn't even bringing unions into the picture. For government jobs that are political it is even worse. Any machine with as many moving parts as the government has is going to have a bunch of them hanging loose. The only way to reign it in IMO is to make it smaller.
