Rick Perry: Trump energy secretary reportedly resigns amid Ukraine scandal

Rick Perry to resign amid Ukraine scandalEnergy  Secretary Rick Perry notified President Donald Trump that he plans to  resign from his post, two administration officials confirmed to White  House reporters on Thursday.

Asked about a Bloomberg report indicating that Perry notified the President of his impending  resignation in writing while Trump was aboard Air Force One on Thursday,  White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told CNN: “Can’t wave  you off.”

Perry has found himself as one of the players in the middle of the controversy stemming  from a whistleblower’s allegation that Trump asked Ukrainian President  Volodomyr Zelensky to investigate former vice president and 2020  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, and that the  White House attempted to cover up the conversation. There is no evidence  of wrongdoing in Ukraine by either Biden.
