Elaine Chao

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is resigning citing Wednesday’s chaos at the US Capitol.

“Our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed. As I’m sure is the case with many of you, it has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply cannot set aside.” Elaine Chao said.

Elaine Chao is Senator Mitch McConnell’s wife and served as Secretary of Transportation since January of 2017.

Chao’s departure marks the first cabinet secretary resignation.
