Thursday's HOT MIC
David Laufman, who leads the Justice Department’s counterintelligence division, announced his resignation for “personal reasons” on Wednesday, The Daily Caller reported.
Laufman worked with FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok on both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Russia investigation. He and Strzok interviewed Clinton as part of the investigation into her emails.
In addition to working on the investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information, Laufman has also worked on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
On the Clinton investigation, he sat in on interviews with the former secretary of state and several of her aides, including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan.
