The U.S. Department of Justice’s Fraud Section is advertising for a new compliance counsel to replace Hui Chen, who was hired nearly two years ago as a contract adviser to bring an in-house compliance counsel viewpoint into the department. Chen was the first lawyer to hold the post.

Her departure might come as no surprise, since she has been tweeting out her unhappiness with the Trump administration since May 10, one day after the president fired then-FBI director James Comey over his investigation into possible interference from Russia into the presidential election.

Chen declined to comment on her impending departure and her tweets. A Justice Department spokesman, Wyn Hornbuckle, said Chen’s contract was due to expire in September.
