As House Republicans continue to investigate the president and his family, the White House has now reportedly announced that its chief counsel will depart next month after nearly three years of service to Vice President Biden.
Prior to acting as deputy counsel, Stuart Delery originally joined Biden’s transition team in November 2020. In 2022, after Dana Remus, Biden’s first counsel, left the White House, he was elevated to the position of chief.
“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.” President Biden announced in a statement.
Delery and his family were also praised by Biden for their service.
Who will take his place as counsel was not disclosed by the White House.
Delery’s resignation comes as House Republicans have started many inquiries into Hunter Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, and the beginnings of COVID-19. Other Republican members are pressing for the impeachment of the president, although this idea is not widely accepted.
A special counsel has been appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to look into the existence of secret materials that were discovered in Vice President Joe Biden’s possession at two distinct locations, including the garage at his Delaware home and his former Washington, D.C., office.
