A Defense comptroller reported wrongdoing at the Defense Information Systems Agency and was removed from his position. Now, Sens. Chuck Grassley and Mark Warner want Defense Secretary Ash Carter to launch a full investigation. They say Jimaye Sones' demotion from comptroller to working on accounting software is a clear case of whistleblower retaliation. As part of this week's Legal Loop, Lynne Bernabei, a partner at the law firm Bernabei and Watchel, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to further explore this case.

The Supreme Court stands by the government's expansion of federal jobs deemed sensitive to national security. A few weeks ago, the high court refused to hear an appeal in a case stemming from the demotion of a Defense Department employee. He managed a commissary and did not have access to classified information or a security clearance. But the government considered his job "sensitive," barring him from appealing the demotion to the Merit Systems Protection Board. Attorney Lynne Bernabei told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what the court's decision means for all federal employees.
