One of the White House’s top attorneys plans to leave the administration by the end of the summer, according to four people familiar with his plans.
The departure of Stefan Passantino, the deputy White House counsel responsible for policing ethics for Trump officials, will leave a huge hole in the White House’s legal operation, where the 51-year-old has operated as the number two to top attorney Don McGahn.
The article goes on to state the following:
He’ll join the steady exodus of top White House officials who have left the Trump administration recently, after a grueling year-and-a-half. In Passantino’s case, the lawyer has been commuting between Washington and his family in Atlanta, friends say, and he had always planned to return home at around this point.
A longtime lawyer to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and partner at the law firm Dentons, Passantino joined the administration in its infancy in January 2017 and took on what many Trump allies have viewed as the unenviable task of enforcing ethics rules, including educating his colleagues – many of them new to government – about the multitude of requirements governing public servants.
