Echoes of the USSR

This is reminiscent of the Soviet “political advisors” who were embedded in all departments of the government of the USSR and were paired with military officers at all units to ensure loyalty to the Communist Party. Cross a political advisor and you go to the gulag. Meanwhile the political advisors are not in the chain of command and are not responsible for the departments. They just ensured loyalty of all managers by turning in anyone with doubts about the system.
