Report: Rick Perry To Resign As Energy Secretary

Another White House official is out, with Energy Secretary Rick Perry reportedly informing President Trump on Thursday that he will resign.

Perry has been under scrutiny as part of the investigation into the Ukraine scandal, after President Trump said his now-controversial phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky was Perry’s idea.

Earlier this month, Perry denied reports that he was planning to leave the job in November. No official timetable has been given for Perry’s departure.
