On April 5, 2018, Simon Edelman, a former chief creative officer at the Department of Energy, filed a complaint with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, which protects federal employees from reprisals for whistle-blowing. In the complaint, Edelman and his attorneys—John Tye, of the nonprofit law firm Whistleblower Aid, and Michael Ronickher, of the firm Constantine Cannon—allege that Edelman was fired from the D.O.E. for sharing “evidence of criminal corruption, obstruction of justice, and ethics violations” with the press.
