Thompson Statement on John Kelly Departing the Trump Administration

(WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member and incoming Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the following statement on former Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly’s departure today from the Trump Administration:

“It is truly sad that John Kelly, who served the country admirably in the military, has had his reputation and service tarnished by serving President Trump both at DHS and the White House. Over the past two years, General Kelly seemed completely unable or unwilling to stand up to the President as he continues to take the country down a dark path. He has little of substance to show for his tenure in this Administration. General Kelly is no victim however - and it is clear that history will not be kind to his complicity and willingness to blindly serve this President.”
