DEA boss quits, says Trump “[has] little respect for the law”
The acting head of the Drug Enforcement Administration will resign at the end of the week, according to law enforcement officials, who said he had become convinced that President Trump had little respect for the law.
The official, Chuck Rosenberg, who twice served as chief of staff to the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey and remains a close confidant, had grown disillusioned with Mr. Trump. The president fired Mr. Comey in May, and then in July told law enforcement officers “please don’t be too nice” when handling crime suspects.
Keep in mind that there are many Americans who, for good reason, are not positively disposed toward the main federal enforcer of the so-called “war on drugs”:
