Rick Perry Resigns Amid Ukraine Scandal
According to a new report by The New York Times, Energy Secretary Rick Perry has formally announced his resignation to Donald Trump after being caught up in the Ukraine Scandal.
Perry had been teasing his resignation for a while but ultimately made his decision on Thursday after throwing Trump under the bus.
Namely, Perry revealed that the president directed him to discuss all Ukraine issues with his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.
At a press conference in Vilnius, Lithuania, Perry confessed to making the recommendations to Ukraine’s state-owned natural gas company, Naftogaz, to hire new management and board. But Perry said he did so only at the request of the Ukrainian government.
