From one of my long time (but now retired) AUSA pals: “David Laufman resignation is a big deal.

As Dep. Assist. AG for National Security Division, he was the Primary Supervisor over Counter-Intelligence work in Nat Sec. He would have had a hand in the approval of
the FISA application on Page.

He likely had a role in the decision making on the Clinton email investigation since his section handled cases involving leaks of classified information. The decisions on granting immunity, and allowing conditions to be attached to the examination
of computers, would have come from his office. I do not think those were conditions that the FBI would have wanted. On the immunity issue, FBI wouldn't have the authority -- that could only come from the prosecutors in Nat Sec.

The press reporting is that he offered his
resignation yesterday, effective IMMEDIATELY.

That's what happens when you are told that your are the subject of an OPR or OIG investigation.

He was in the post since 2014 -- under Carlin, Yates, and Lynch in the chain of command.” This source isn’t perfect. None are. But very
very accurate over many years.
