Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, who is the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, announced Thursday that she was resigning her Cabinet post, citing Wednesday’s chaotic violence at the U.S. Capitol as her reason.

“Yesterday, our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed,” Chao said in a statement issued on Twitter and addressed to colleagues at the Department of Transportation.
