Meadows set to resign from Congress as he moves to White House


Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) is expected to resign from Congress on Monday as he heads over to the White House to become President Trump's next chief of staff, a Meadows aide told The Hill.

A letter announcing his departure from Capitol Hill is expected to be released later Monday, the aide said.

After five terms in the House, Meadows will replace his former colleague and Freedom Caucus member, Mick Mulvaney, who served as Trump's acting chief of staff for a little more than a year. Trump had two other chief of staffs before Mulvaney took on the interim role.

Meadows will be coming into the high-profile role as the White House is grappling with the coronavirus pandemic, which has reached more than 140,000 cases in the U.S. as of Monday morning, according to a New York Times database. Trump has come under scrutiny for initially downplaying the outbreak at a time when the administration could've been preparing for the pandemic, by seeking key equipment and supplies.

Can't wait to see what great things happen from hiring only the best!

I know he's an idiot, but he's taking what increasingly looks like an 8 month gig.
If he's safe in his seat, this seems dumb.
