Priebus Resigns

Reince Priebus

Amid numerous staff changes at the White House, Priebus resigns from his position as Trump’s chief of staff.

Reinhold Richard “Reince” Priebus was the chairman of the Republican National Committee during the 2016 election and served as President Donald Trump’s chief of staff for the first six months of his administration. During his time in the White House, Priebus said intelligence officials had cleared the Trump campaign of collusion with Russia and reportedly requested that the FBI refute allegations that Trump associates had been in communication with Russian intelligence officers. Special Counsel Robert Mueller interviewed Priebus as part of the investigation into the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia on October 13, 2017.
