– Former chief of staff to President Donald Trump, Mick Mulvaney, has tendered his resignation
– Mulvaney’s resignation came hours after Trump’s supporters attacked Capitol
– The ex-envoy said that he could no longer work with Trump’s administration
Mick Mulvaney, President Donald Trump’s former chief of staff and current special envoy to Northern Ireland has resigned.
CNN reports he told CNBC in an interview this morning that he called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last night and resigned.
Legit.ng gathered that he called Pompeo on Wednesday, January 6, to notify him of his resignation, stressing that he could no longer stay.
“I called Mike Pompeo last night to let him know I was resigning from that. I can’t do it. I can’t stay.
“Those who choose to stay, and I have talked with some of them, are choosing to stay because they’re worried the President might put someone worse in.”
The report stated that Stephanie Grisham, former White House communications director and press secretary and current chief of staff for first lady Melania Trump, submitted her resignation Wednesday, January 6, as did President Trump’s deputy national security adviser Matt Pottinger.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Donald Trump may be removed from office as the United States president a few weeks to the end of his tenure, following the invasion of the US Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, by his supporters.
It was reported that some members of President Trump’s cabinet have been discussing the possibility of invoking the 25th Amendment.
The 25th Amendment is another constitutional means of removing a US president, apart from impeachment through the legislature.
In a related report, Marc Short, the chief of staff to the outgoing vice president, Mike Pence, was banned from entering the White House following the VP’s refusal to overturn Joe Biden’s win.
Trump has been delusional with his claims of victory as the US president is continuing wielding all the state instruments to stop Biden’s inauguration.
The US congress met on Wednesday, January 6, to certify the former senator, 78, as the winner of the election but the process was met with an attack as pro-Trump supporters invaded the Capitol to disrupt the democratic process, Sky News reported.
