Also, when you're attempting to clean up corruption, it takes special people. I can understand frequent firings, and resignations. If the hired person doesn't have the rare qualities that are needed, try someone else.

This is troubling! Attorney General William Barr (DOJ) declined to prosecute an (unnamed) top FBI official who broke several Federal Laws.
For all we know, this could be former FBI official Andrew McCabe, whom the Office of Inspector General (OIG) began investigating late 2017. After the below report was issued, McCabe began appearing on TV (CNN) once again...defending the FBI and bashing President Trump.
Here is the Inspector General's (Michael Horowitz) summary of findings:

Findings of Misconduct by an FBI Deputy Assistant Director for Unauthorized Contacts with the Media, Disclosing Law Enforcement and Other Sensitive Information to the Media, and Accepting a Gift from the Media
The Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated this investigation upon the receipt of information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), alleging that a then FBI Deputy Assistant Director (DAD) had numerous contacts with members of the media in violation of FBI policy.
Additionally, it was alleged that the DAD may have disclosed law enforcement or other sensitive information to the media without authorization.
This matter is among the OIG investigations referenced on page 430 of the OIG’s Review of Allegations Regarding Various Actions by the Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Advance of the 2016 Election (June 2018; www.justice.gov... ).
The OIG investigation concluded that the DAD engaged in misconduct when the DAD: (1) disclosed to the media the existence of information that had been filed under seal in federal court, in violation of 18 USC § 401, Contempt of Court; (2) provided without authorization FBI law enforcement sensitive information to reporters on multiple occasions; and (3) had dozens of official contacts with the media without authorization, in violation of FBI policy.
The OIG also found that the DAD engaged in misconduct when the DAD accepted a ticket, valued at approximately $225, to attend a media-sponsored dinner, as a gift from a member of the media, in violation of federal regulations and FBI policy.
Prosecution of the DAD was declined.
The OIG has completed this investigation and is providing this report to the FBI for appropriate action.
Unless otherwise noted, the OIG applies the preponderance of the evidence standard in determining whether Department of Justice (DOJ) personnel have committed misconduct.
Democrats, the Mainstream Media, and RINOs fear that Attorney General Barr's team of prosecutors and the Inspector General is coming for them.
Trump supporters are encouraged by Bill Barr's public statements, and the assigning of Federal Prosecutor John Durham to investigate alleged Spygate crimes, spearheaded by President Obama's administration.
BUT...if he is willing to let an Assistant FBI Director off the hook after numerous crimes are proven, what are the odds that he will indict a former FBI Director ( James Comey), CIA Director (John Brennan), Director of National Intelligence (James Clapper), or a former First Lady/Secretary of State (Hillary Clinton), even if it's determined that they broke Federal Laws?
Perhaps Attorney General William Barr also deep-state "protect our own", since he rose through government ranks in the same environment as the aforementioned individuals. I pray that this isn't the case! But if it is, government needs to be shut-down, wiped, and rebooted. (IMO)
