Biden's most trusted advisor resigns amid intensifying Republican investigations

 August 21, 2023

One of President Biden's top advisors, Stuart Delery, who has been working in the White House since Biden first was sworn into office, announced his resignation ending three years of working under the commander in chief.

In response to Delery's resignation, President Biden issued a statement saying Delery was a "trusted adviser and a constant source of innovative legal thinking since Day One of my administration."

Biden's statement continued saying, "From his work during those early days on COVID-19 and efforts to get life-saving vaccines to the American public to the implementation of major legislative accomplishments such as the American Rescue Plan, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the Inflation Reduction Act, he has been an integral part of my team and will be missed throughout the Administration."

Now why would Biden's deputy counsel suddenly jump ship after three years of loyal service? The answer could lie in the intensifying Republican investigations of President Biden's business activities and mishandling of classified documents.

It's possible that the risks of staying with the Biden administration are beginning to outgrow the benefits.

Now Delery is free to go work for anyone else in politics who isn't at the center of multiple investigations, and his talents will be sought after by many Democrats.
