In the first 24 hours following the attack on the Capitol, at least 12 staff in the Trump administration resign from their post.

Some leave in protest. Others, like Betsy DeVos, leave to prevent having to vote on using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

Those who resign include:

Betsy DeVos, Education Secretary

Hunter Kurtz, assistant secretary for public and Indiana housing at Housing & Urban Development

Elaine Chao, Transportation Secretary and Mitch McConnell’s wife

Tyler Goodspeed, acting chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisors

John Costello, deputy assistant secretary for intelligence and cybersecurity at the Dept. of Commerce

Ryan Tully, senior director for European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council and Trump’s top adviser on Russia

Mick Mulvaney, special envoy to Norther Ireland and former White House chief of staff who bragged about a scheme to remove liberals from government positions and aided in Trump’s Ukraine bribe

Matt Pottinger, deputy national security adviser with special focus on China

Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump’s chief of staff

Sarah Matthews, White House deputy press secretary under Kayleigh McEnany

Anna Cristina Niceta, White House social secretary

Eric Dreiband, assistant attorney general and head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division
