I suppose it would back up Garibaldi's viewpoint, that Sheridan is building his own little fiefdom and dictating matters to everyone. It just seems a little naive of Sheridan (or perhaps arrogant) to assume Lyta is under his command.
Yea, that's an excellent point. They had Marcus in their "inner circle". Ivanova had some issues with that at first, but she came around. There's no reason they couldn't have invented a position for Lyta. She certainly deserved to be on the payroll ...

his reasoning makes perfect sense!
I was thinking that too, on this last re-watch. It sounds reasonable enough when he explains his reasons for resigning. We, the audience, know what we know, and therefore it's suspicious to us, but it shouldn't necessarily be suspicious to them ... On the other hand, maybe it really is totally out of character for him to be behaving in that way. I don't know.
