List of Trump administration dismissals and resignations

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Many political appointees of Donald Trump, the 45th and current President of the United States, have resigned or been dismissed. The record-setting turnover rate in the Trump Administration has been noted in various publications.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9]

Several Trump appointees, including National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price have the shortest-service tenures in the history of their respective offices.[a]

For completeness, the list below includes, in addition to dismissals and resignations, routine job changes such as promotions (e.g. Gina Haspel from CIA Deputy Director to Director), officials moving to a comparable position (e.g. John Kelly from Secretary of Homeland Security to Chief of Staff), and acting or temporary officials being replaced by permanent ones.

James Comey official portrait (cropped).jpg James Comey Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation September 4, 2013 May 9, 2017

Statements from Trump and the White House suggested that he had been dismissed to ease the "pressure" Trump was under due to the Russia investigation.[103][104][105] Later that month he arranged for a friend to tell the press about a memo he had written after a February 14 private meeting with the president. It said Trump had asked him to end the FBI's investigation into Michael Flynn, the former National Security Advisor. His dismissal, the memo, and Comey's subsequent Congressional testimony were interpreted by some commentators as evidence of obstruction of justice and became part of a widening investigation by Robert Mueller, the Special Counsel appointed to probe Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.[106]

McCabe denied that he had ever been dishonest and charged that his firing was politically motivated.[112][113][114]
