US education secretary Betsy DeVos resigned Thursday evening, January 07, 2021. According to CNBC, DeVos’ resignation is directly related to “Donald Trump for rhetoric that fueled the invasion of the U.S. Capitol by a mob of Trump suppporters.”

On January 06, 2021, DeVos also tweeted the following statement:

Earlier the same day, transportation secretary Elaine Chou also resigned. Chou is the wife of Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell.

The two Cabinet resignations come as the idea of Vice President Mike Pence invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump is in the news— a removal that would require majority approval of Trump’s Cabinet (more on that here). As of this writing, Pence has expressed no intention to pursue this course of action.
