Rats running away from a sinking ship.
Labor Secretary Marty Walsh is leaving the Biden administration.
Walsh is stepping down from his position to lead the NHL Players Association.
Running: J6 defendant Victoria White — who was punched in the face by police with their bare fists and batons more than 40 times on Jan. 6 — arrived in DC this week for an upcoming trial.
Labor Secretary Marty Walsh is leaving the Biden administration to run the NHL Players Association, a person familiar with the matter confirmed.
Walsh’s departure comes amid a wide shake-up within the Biden administration as it begins the tail end of his first term in office and prepares for a possible re-election campaign.
A former union official — he previously led the Building and Construction Trades Council in Boston — Walsh will return to his roots in organized labor after giving some consideration to another run for elected office in his home state of Massachusetts.
News of Walsh’s departure was first reported by The Daily Faceoff. It was not immediately clear what the date of his departure would be, and neither the White House nor the Labor Department immediately returned requests for comment.
Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klein, recently left the administration.
Brian Deese, Joe Biden’s top economic adviser, is also stepping down from his role.
Joe Biden has not yet announced plans to run for re-election in 2024.
Biden had been scheduled to make the announcement after the holidays but a leak to CBS about classified documents stolen from his personal office derailed his plans.
