BenSwann.com recently reported on a Department of Justice report that exposed the fact that Drug Enforcement Administration agents working in Colombia were caught engaging in sex parties in their taxpayer-funded living quarters with prostitutes funded by local cartels. Now, CNN is reporting that DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart, first appointed to her post in an acting capacity by former President George W. Bush and then confirmed under President Barack Obama, is planning to step down following what CNN‘s Evan Perez characterized as a “poor performance” at a congressional hearing concerning the sex party scandal. Leonhart made news back in 1997 when she became the first woman in DEA history to be appointed to the position of Special Agent in Charge.

At issue are the facts that Leonhart failed to produce a plan for weeding out the corruption at the core of the sex party scandal and dished out light punishments to the agents involved. CBS News notes that she expressed frustrations during her congressional testimony that it is too difficult to fire DEA agents under agency policy. Highlights from Michele Leonhart’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee during the hearing about the sex party scandal can be seen in the above-embedded video provided by CNN.

Leonhart also recently annoyed the Obama administration by contradicting the President’s policy of deferring to state-level marijuana laws and relaxing enforcement of marijuana prohibition in states where it has been legalized.

On Friday, Leonhart sent an email to DEA employees, which said, “This has been a very difficult week for DEA, with members of Congress and the media asking tough questions and sharing our outrage about the disgraceful conduct of a few individuals several years ago. This employee misconduct has upset me for many reasons, but especially because it calls into question the incredible reputation DEA has built over more than 40 years.”

According to CNN, Leonhart met with officials at the Department of Justice on April 20 to develop a plan for resigning her post and handing her responsibilities over to an eventual successor. The DOJ reportedly hopes to publicize Leonhart’s resignation before Loretta Lynch takes office as US attorney general, if Lynch prevails in her upcoming Senate confirmation vote.
