Former Michigan U.S. Representative and national security expert leaves Trump team
There are early signs of strain seen within President-elect Donald Trump’s transition effort. One man who is now out of the picture is a former Michigan Congressman and national security expert.
The work of putting together a Donald Trump administration has been continuing in Trump's Manhattan high-rise. Tuesday he held meetings with Vice President-elect Mike Pence. But the transition team may be straining under the enormous challenge.
Former U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers of Lansing, who is also former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a respected voice on national security issues, announced that he's stepping down from the Trump coalition.
Rogers issued a statement on his Twitter account, “It was my privilege to have worked on the Trump Transition Team.”
