US Energy Secretary Rick Perry resigned. He completed his work in the department on December 1.
вЂњToday I say goodbye to the Department of Energy. It was an honor and a privilege of my life to serve in the administration of President Donald Trump as a minister. Thanks to my wife, my children, and the American people for letting me serve,вЂќ Perry wrote on his Twitter.
Recall, the resignation of Perry Trump announced at a cabinet meeting in October. After that, the president said that the department will be headed by Deputy Energy Minister Dan Bruyette.
Recall that earlier Trump said that in July he called Zelensky to congratulate him on the holding of parliamentary elections, precisely at the request of Perry. It was this call that became the reason for the Democrats to accuse the White House of pressure on Ukraine to resume the investigation against the son of former US Vice President Joe Biden.
Perry himself does not hide what he discussed with American officials, including President Donald Trump, Ukraine, but denies that he ever mentioned Biden or his son in this context.
