President Donald Trump’s former Chief of Staff and special U.S. envoy to Northern Ireland, Mick Mulvaney, has joined the growing list of senior officials who’ve resigned from their positions.
In a statement this morning Mr. Mulvaney said he informed Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo of his resignation after the chaos in the Capitol last evening.
In a later interview Mr. Mulvaney also hinted of more resignations to come soon.
There’s also news that National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien is considering resigning over the insurrection.
Along with Mr. Mulvaney, Deputy Security Advisor, Matthew Pottinger, has resigned so too has First Lady Chief of Staff Stephanie Grisham, and White House Deputy Press Secretary, Sarah Matthews.
Mulvaney also added that Trump was not the same as he was eight months ago.
The former congressman from South Carolina says there’re many choosing to remain in office out of fear that the President will replace them with someone who will make the situation worse.
