Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) officially resigned from Congress Monday, weeks after he announced his intention to leave in order to head up former President Donald Trump’s new social media company.
During a pro forma House session, Nunes’s resignation letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was read aloud from the chamber floor by a clerk.
“I write to inform you that I have notified California Governor Gavin Newsom of my resignation from the US House of Representatives, effective today at 11:59 p.m.,” Nunes’ letter read.
“It has been the honor of my life to represent the people of California’s San Joaquin Valley for the last 19 years,” it continued. “Please let me know how I can be of help during this transition.”
