Lynne Bernabei, Partner, Bernabei & Watchel

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.

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

For about eight years, Jimmy Sones was the top financial official at the Defense Information Systems Agency. He's still a member of the Senior Executive Service, but his only real job these days is co-chairing an obscure Pentagon study group on financial management software. A pair of senators think there's reason to believe his reassignment was in retaliation for blowing the whistle on financial irregularities at DISA. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu tells In Depth with Francis Rose about it as part of this week's Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

Earlier this month, the Defense Information Systems Agency announced a major reorganization. It says the changes would help drive cybersecurity into everything the agency does. But DISA will never have unlimited resources, so it's now moving toward a "risk management" approach to cybersecurity: Accepting risk in some areas so that it can make sure that what really matters is highly secure. The risk management executive is a new position within the agency's organizational chart. DISA Risk Management Executive Mark Orndorff talked about the new cyber philosophy with Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu.
