White House chief of staff Ron Klain is expected to resign in the next few weeks, according to a report.
Klain, 61, has been telling colleagues privately that he is on his way out since the midterm elections in November, according to a report in the New York Times on Saturday. Klain has been President Biden’s chief of staff for the past two years.
It’s not yet clear if a successor has been chosen or when Klain plans to make the formal announcement of his imminent departure, although more information is expected after next month’s State of the Union address, the newspaper reported.
The resignation comes as President Biden faces probes into classified documents that were found at the Washington, DC office of the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC, as well as his residence in Wilmington, Delaware.
