The letter declares the current culture in the State Department – a topic that was prominently displayed during the impeachment procedure of the Democratic Parliamentary Parliaments. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has received criticism for not adequately defending the career diplomats encircled in the impeachment investigation. President Donald Trump labeled several of them "never trumpers."
"In difficult times, the State Department is experiencing what I and many consider to be the worst and most profound moral crisis facing career professionals and politically-appointed Department History," Chang wrote. "The department's morale is at its lowest, and professionalism and collegiality ̵
Chang also takes on the task of the State Department not to protect it.
"The murder of characters based solely on allusions was initiated against me, which attacked my powers and character," she said. "My department heads refused to defend me, defended the truth, or allowed me to answer false allegations against me."
A State Department spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Chang's spokesman said she had no comment other than the letter and the rebuttal she wrote about NBC's history . NBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment about pushing Chang back.
NBC reported last week that Chang was misleading in her official biography that she was a "graduate" of Harvard School when she actually only attended a seven-week course there. He also reported that Chang even created a fake cover of Time magazine presenting her own image.
In her denial, Chang notes that she never claimed to have earned a degree from Harvard. A spokesman for Harvard Business School told NBC that the school allows people who attend certain college education programs to apply for "graduate status" even if they have not earned a degree.
Chang's rebuttal also says that Time's cover came when a friend of hers commissioned artist Pierre-Yves Deigot to create "a piece with her on the cover of Time magazine." The friend acted without telling Chang, he says. in the document.
Then, the rebuttal says, "an enthusiastic online fan went one step further and used an app to make a fake cover of the magazine with Ms. Chang's actual image superimposed on the cover, which was subsequently circulated online."
The document further states that Chang did not give any permission or knew that the false cover would be used during a public access interview at Houston Community College.
Chang joined the State Department in late April and was later nominated for a job at the US Agency for International Development, where it would exceed the $ 1 billion budget and development agency in Asia.
But she withdrew her application for the job in early September without public explanation. NBC announced that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has asked for more documents and information on career background.
Chang says that when MPs raise questions, the State Department revisits the materials of her request and "finds that he did not in any way mislead employees during the investigation."
