Dismayed by Trump, Head of Drug Enforcement Administration to Leave
 
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.

He likely knew Trump was going to fire him anyway for not backing his denigration of law enforcement and speaking out against him. The sad thing is he will not likely be replaced and another agency will be crippled...few want to risk working for our president or can afford the lawyers.

At this point do we even have a federal government? It seems to be judeds and the president's lawyers fighting it out and state governments trying to keep things running without any help. It doesn't seem tenable, at some point either Trump goes and his successor rebuilds the government or the whole thing comes crashing down.
