The Department of Defense’s chief of staff Rear Adm. Kevin Sweeney, who served as chief of staff to former Defense Secretary James Mattis, has become the latest top official to resign from the department in recent weeks.
Sweeney said in a brief statement that he planned to return to the private sector. He provided no reason for his departure.
“After two years in the Pentagon, I’ve decided the time is right to return to the private sector. It has been an honor to serve again alongside the men and women of the Department of Defense,” Sweeney said in his announcement.
His resignation comes just days after Secretary of Defense James Mattis, for whom Sweeney previously served, left the agency after announcing his resignation earlier in the month.
The resignation also comes less than a week after another top Mattis ally, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White, announced her resignation at the end of December.
“I appreciate the opportunity afforded to me by this administration to serve alongside Secretary Mattis, our Service members and all the civilians who support them. It has been my honor and privilege,” White wrote on Twitter last month. “Stay safe and God bless.”
He was part of the Deep State so we are glad that he is gone!
