Now-former Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who has served North Carolina’s 11th congressional district for the last seven years, and was at one time the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, resigned from Congress on Monday to officially become President Trump’s chief of staff.

He delivered his formal letter of resignation to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“I write today to inform you that I will resign from the House of Representatives, effective 5:00 p.m. Monday, March 30,” he wrote in a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

“Serving the people of North Carolina’s eleventh congressional district for these last seven years has been the honor of my life. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity.”

Meadows’s resignation was demanded by Article I, Section 6 of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits individuals from holding other civil offices while also serving in Congress.

At the White House, Meadows will replace Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, who had served as acting chief of staff since December 2018. Trump announced the staff shakeup on March 6.

Meadows will start officially reporting for chief of staff duty on Tuesday.

    Hope another conservative takes his place; NC governor isn’t one.

    If only Piglosi would resign, and than drop dead.

    I hated to see him go but that is the choice he made. I think he was very professional and well like. A very good man and I wish him the best in his new position. God bless you Representative Meadows.

    Pelosi will be glad to lose Meadows as he is a thorn in her side.

    Don’t know who the troll is giving thumbs down to all these good answers but I have a guess. At any rate, Mark Meadows is a good choice and I believe he will be an asset to Trump and his administration.
