On June 17,2015, the Department of Justice recognized David Margolis on his 50 years of service to the Department. See our June 23 post here: Margolis Celebrates 50 Years of Service. On July 15, The Washington Post published an article entitled David Margolis’s 50 years of quips and controversies at Justice Department, writing:
Margolis is the senior-most career employee in the department and one whose tenure out-clocks that of J. Edgar Hoover, the legendary FBI director. A tall, shambling bear of a man, Margolis has been the consigliere to a succession of deputy attorneys general, with a Forrest Gump-like knack to be involved with a number of the most politically controversial issues of the department’s past 25 years.
