Top China adviser reported among White House resignations after Capitol violence

Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting

Even though Pence fully backed Trump for four years, Sanford said, when he would not use his position as president of the Senate tonullifythe Electoral College count, "the guy turns on him". "Yesterday, that culminated in violent sedition against the U.S. Congress for the purposes of overturning a legally recognized and valid election".

The White House could not be immediately reached for comment on the three women's abrupt resignations. CNN also reported that several other staffers resigned from the White House on Wednesday.

Top Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling, a Republican who angered the president when he refused to go along with his election fraud allegations, took aim at USA lawmakers planning to object to the electors, tweeting that they should resign.

But they had only tepid support from President Trump, who had inspired and encouraged the riot, and from some of their own leaders, who seemed frozen by the spectacle of an armed band roaming the Capitol corridors and occupying the chambers and offices. In a statement, Chao, who is married to Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, said the violent attack on the Capitol "has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply can not set aside".

Trump, long used to being humored and flattered by his ever-changing cast of White House aides, will now find fewer ready to stay by his side.

Financial Times: "Mike Pence defies pressure from Donald Trump to nullify election" - "President Donald Trump lashed out at Republicans refusing to back his last-gasp effort to cling to power as his vice-president Mike Pence defied pressure to nullify Joe Biden's victory at a joint session of Congress later on Wednesday".

Bloomberg News reported early Thursday morning that deputy national security adviser Matthew Pottinger had stepped down as well.

"Yesterday, our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed", Chao wrote in the Thursday statement.

In the aftermath of the election, Mulvaney stood up for Trump in a prominent way. "It's not good for the party", one Trump campaign adviser said.

Grisham entered the White House as deputy press secretary under Sean Spicer, but in March 2017, Melania Trump hired her for her East Wing staff.

Stephanie Grisham resigned as chief of staff to the first lady after supporters of President Donald Trump violently occupied the US Capitol.

Dan Kildee tonight issued a strong condemnation of his Republican colleagues whose rhetoric helped foment the attack the US Capitol on Wednesday, saying their names should be remembered forever. "So what you're seeing is definitely a rift, I would say, amongst the loyalist Trump supporter and conservatives who have supported Pence". "But go home. And go home in peace".
