36. According to MSNBC, Mattis' letter was NOT released by the White House,

but instead it was released by the Pentagon. My belief and seemingly by most of the commentators on MSNBC and CNN is that tRump's unilateral announcement that we were pulling our troops out of Syria and also info leaking out of the White House that tRump is seriously pulling troops out of Afghanistan as well, caused Mattis' resignation because tRump crossed his personal red line and he could not, in good conscience, continue as SecDef.

Rachel just said '...the Secretary of Defense resigning'.
