The Body Count -- Two at the OMB

A Reoccurring Feature on Who's Jumping Off Luxury Liner Trump

Two officials at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) resigned this year partly because of their concerns about Trump’s decision to hold up congressionally approved security assistance to Ukraine. That's according to Mark Sandy, an official at the OMB, who told the House Intelligence Committee in a private interview this month that one of the officials “expressed some frustrations about not understanding the reason for the hold” before resigning in September. The transcript of Sandy's testimony was released by the committee yesterday.

A second co-worker, an official in the legal division of the office, also resigned after offering a “dissenting opinion” about whether it was legal to hold up the aid.
