Donald Trump said Thursday that Energy Secretary Rick Perry, who has been caught up in the impeachment probe engulfing the US president, was standing down, marking the latest departure of a senior administration figure.
“Rick has done a fantastic job at Energy but it was time — three years is a long time,” Trump said, speaking in Texas. “We already have his replacement.”
The announcement came a day after the publication of an interview in which Perry said that — on Trump’s orders — he had communicated with the president’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani over alleged corruption in Ukraine.
