A former consultant in the Department of Justice's Fraud Section said in a LinkedIn post that she resigned last month, because she felt "hypocritical" working in the administration of President Donald Trump.

Hui Chen wrote that "To sit across the table from companies and question how committed they were to ethics and compliance felt not only hypocritical, but very much like shuffling the deck chair on the Titanic."

She explained that "Even as I engaged in those questioning and evaluations, on my mind were the numerous lawsuits pending against the President of the United States for everything from violations of the Constitution to conflict of interest, the ongoing investigations of potentially treasonous conducts, and the investigators and prosecutors fired for their pursuits of principles and facts."

Chen stated that she did not want to be a part of it, because "Those are conducts I would not tolerate seeing in a company, yet I worked under an administration that engaged in exactly those conduct."

Before resigning, Chen had posted tweets critical of Trump, and she said that management in her office tried to keep her from publicly speaking out against the administration, The Hill reported.

Chen's contract was scheduled to expire in October.

She was the first lawyer to hold the position of in-house compliance counsel for the Justice Department when she started in 2015, according to a Justice Department press release at the time.
