California Rep. Devin Nunes Resigns and Joins Trump's Powerhouse Media Company-ss-Featured

U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif) has formally tendered his resignation from his seat in the House of Representatives this week following his announcement that he had been named CEO of former Pres. Donald Trump’s new media company.

In a letter that was read on the House floor on Monday, as reported by Fox 26 of Fresno California, Nunes stated that representing the people of San Joaquin Valley in California “has been the honor” of his life.

In December, the then-California representative stated that he planned to resign from Congress at the end of the year to join Trump Media & Technology group, which was established last January “to even the playing field” against liberal media.

The said media company is expected to debut “TRUTH Social,” which is a social media platform that people can use as an alternative to Facebook and Twitter.

Nunes first got elected to the House back in 2002. He has also been one of Trump’s allies since before the former president was elected.

Last year, Trump awarded the former representative with the Presidential Medal of Freedom shortly before the end of his administration.

Trump: Nunes is “a fighter and a leader”

In a statement released last month, Trump described Nunes as “a fighter and a leader.” He added that the former congressman “will make an excellent CEO of TMTG. Devin understands that we must stop the liberal media and Big Tech from destroying the freedoms that make America great.”

As a congressman, Nunes served as the House Intelligence Committee’s chair from 2015 to 2019. He remained the top Republican member on the committee until his resignation.
