‘I can’t do it’: Former White House Chief of Staff resigns


WASHINGTON (KLKN) — Former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney has resigned from his position as U.S. special envoy to Northern Ireland.

Mulvaney made the announcement during an on-camera interview with CNBC this morning.

Mulvaney said he had spoken with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last night about his resignation.

“I can’t do it. I can’t stay,” Mulvaney said. “It’s a nothing thing. It doesn’t affect the outcome. It doesn’t affect the transition. But it’s what I’ve got, right, and it’s a position I really enjoy doing. But you can’t do it. And I wouldn’t be surprised to see more of my friends resign over the course of the next 24 to 48 hours.”
