The Peter Principle, as demonstrated by Jeff Sessions

Source:  Wikipedia

Justice Dept. Rank-and-File Tell of Discontent Over Sessions’s Approach.  (The New York Times, 10/19/2018)
Multiple offender?  Now, discontent and infighting have taken hold at the Justice Department, in part because Mr. Sessions was so determined to carry out that transformation that he ignored dissent, at times putting the Trump administration on track to lose in court and prompting high-level departures, according to interviews over several months with two dozen current and former career department lawyers who worked under Mr. Sessions. Most asked not to be named for fear of retribution.

Peter Principle defined.
