Mick Mulvaney Resigns After Capitol Siege: ‘I can’t stay’

Mick Mulvaney, former White House chief of staff and current special envoy to Northern Ireland, announced he is stepping down in what appears to be the latest in a stream of resignations following the chaos that was unleashed at the US Capitol by supporters of President Trump.

“I called [Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo last night to let him know I was resigning from that. I can’t do it. I can’t stay,” Mulvaney told CNBC in an interview Thursday.

“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,” Mulvaney said.

Already, several White House staffers — including Stephanie Grisham, first lady Melania Trump’s chief of staff, and deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews — have said they would step down.

White House social secretary Rickie Niceta and deputy national security adviser Matt Pottinger also reportedly stepped down Wednesday. …

    The President called for a peaceful protest. I do not hold him responsible for the actions of a very small number of bad actors. His legacy of accomplishments are not erased.

  2. Pick a lane…CCP/City Of London or America. I guess we know Mick now.

    Another swamp dweller exposes himself. Thanks Mick.

    I’m glad we have an opportunity to see all the SWAMP creatures leaving. Poor President Trump has been betrayed from the very beginning by so called conservatives, Good riddance to bad garbage!!

    Sooo Mick,
    Why didn’t you make sure that the thugs were the left ANTIFA that has been paid by Soros for a long time?
    Good grief they and their ILK have been doing this sort of thing for these last 4 years -haven’t they?
    They and their ILK still need to be under arrest as well. Best solution is to start taking them out! Why not?

    Now Mick you are leaving the conservatives because you are not going to get paid either and that’s why we know now that you are siding with the LEFT. if you dare to return then I hope you get tarred and feathered!

    Thank you police officers and the one who shot the woman going in the window probably thought she was breaking the LAW–OMG you leftists do not recognize right and wrong!

  6. Democrats spent four years relentlessly trying to break Trump. And exploiting this country to a dual system of justice and rhetoric. I cut Trump a lot of slack for these final days of his besieged administration. The election was stolen, which means all future elections now belong in the hands of the thieves, the very ugly Democrat party and their insider deep state henchmen. Pray for America, indeed she was lost today.

    I am tremendously grateful to President Trump for all the good he has done.
    One of the innumerable good things he has done, by his great courage, is to expose the
    people who care more about enriching themselves than about advocating for
    everyday hardworking Americans of all races, religions and backgrounds.
    Better than anyone else I know, President Trump has answered President Kennedy’s
    call: “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country!”

    Dear Mr. Mulvaney,

    Your departure is unfortunate in that you did so much for Northern Ireland. Your list of accomplishments there can be counted on no hands so I’m sure the people of Ulster will go into apoplectic shock when they realize you’re gone. I’m certain that Joe Biden will replace you with someone prominent like Joe Sestak or Beto O’Rourke so they can continue your fine work.
