Cousin Ryan just couldn't put up with the BS. anymore, and says he didn't want to waste "thousands of dollars" fighting the harassing investigations that are certain to only worsen when the Dems take control of the House in January.
Ryan Zinke to leave Trump administration at end of the year - CNNPolitics

Sorry to use a link to the Communist News Network, but the Fox link won't work at this moment.

[This is a duplicate post of what I put on LVR's post above, in case you missed his post as I did]
Death by a 1,000 cuts for Trump. Make it so dangerous and expensive to work for the Trump administration that NO ONE in their right mind would want to risk working for him.
In this way, the government will revert to professional political class only, how dare we serfs think we can work in government?
Go back to work and pay your taxes, serfs! Stay in your place!

This sort of thing is what makes me believe that any future American Revolution will look more like the French Revolution on steroids than the original American Revolution. There's a reason all the upper level establishment politicians have offshore accounts (and probably own real estate in Switzerland).

All political class members, regardless of party, do this. You may have heard of or read, even seen the movie, "The Odessa File", based on a spy thriller by Frederick Forsyth. But "ODESSA" was a very real entity. Organisation der ehemaligen SchutzStaffel Angehörigen. "Organization of former SS members". Around 1941 some of the more intelligent members of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis) saw the writing on the wall and started discreetly moving their ill-gotten gains to Switzerland and South America. I know the granddaughter of one such couple personally. By war's end the big wigs in the Nazi party had themselves set up to live out their lives far, far away from the Allies' trials and executions. My classmate who got her M.A. with me was at MSU studying because her husband was doing research for the ag ministry of Argentina. Her grandparents had to leave Austria because of the imminent approach of the Soviets. They were very high-ranking Nazis. She attended school K-undergraduate degree in her community in Argentina where German was the lingua franca. Spoke fluent German and Spanish, and her English was pretty decent but we mostly spoke German, too much English gave her a headache.
Anyway my point is, the political class, regardless of party or country, always give themselves an "out". When Putin came to power, he wrote how he expected them (himself and other former KGB) to be hounded out of government in a few short years, and has done the same as the Nazis of the 1940s...and is reputedly astonished that the Russian people haven't run him out of power.

To clarify: Putin (who was KGB station chief in Dresden, DDR (communist East Germany) when the protests began which ultimately led to the opening of the Berlin Wall, and the collapse of East Germany, reunification, then 2 years later the collapse of eastern European communism-we watched the execution of the Romanian dictator and his wife on German television in December 1989 - and the dissolution of the USSR. Putin was in full panic and started "stashing" way back then...
