Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos resigns amid controversy

DeVos, the nation’s top education secretary, resigned on Tuesday after the Department of Education released a report accusing her of sexual harassment and assault.

The report, commissioned by the Senate, said DeVos violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution by accepting gifts from businesses that had political and business ties to President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization.

The Emolument Clause prohibits foreign governments from accepting gifts or benefits from U.S. officials or agencies.

“It is clear that the Department’s investigation of Ms. DeVos was motivated by a desire to distract from the misconduct of a few people in the Trump administration,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement Tuesday.

“I was unable to do so and resigned effective immediately.”

DeVos’ resignation came after the department’s inspector general said she had violated federal ethics rules and that she had lied about her knowledge of her responsibilities as secretary.

The department said it would conduct an internal review of the findings and a criminal investigation.

The IG report said DeVos had “misrepresented her knowledge” of her duties to her bosses, the president and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The watchdog said she made false statements about her interactions with senior department officials.

The Office of Government Ethics later launched an investigation into her conduct.

She has been the subject of numerous ethics investigations and investigations by the House and Senate, but none has resulted in charges.

DeVos is the second female Cabinet secretary to resign since the Trump presidency, joining former Vice President Mike Pence, who stepped down after the FBI and Office of Congressional Ethics found he had violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits lawmakers from accepting government money or gifts.

The Hatch Act prohibits members of Congress from accepting any salary or other compensation from a federal agency or official unless they receive approval from Congress, and it has been used to hold prominent government officials accountable.

Trump also fired FBI Director James Comey, who was overseeing the Russia investigation.

Trump has repeatedly defended Comey, calling him “a fine man” and “a man of honor.”

But Comey has not faced the same level of scrutiny as DeVos, who has been under intense scrutiny as she prepares to lead the nation for the first time.

“The fact that she has the power to take these kinds of actions shows that she is a person who has a very strong grasp of how to use that power,” former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said on “Fox & Friends.”

“That means she knows how to make these kinds [actions].”

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who served as a foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign, has also been accused of sexual misconduct.

“He’s not going to be in the White House again, but it is going to affect him and others,” Giuliani said.

The White House has not commented on the report.

“We will continue to pursue these matters with the Department,” said a White House official, who declined to comment further.

The investigation comes after multiple women have accused Trump of inappropriate sexual behavior, including former campaign chair, former New Hampshire senator and current Florida governor Jeb Bush, who resigned last month over allegations of sexual assault.

“There are women who are willing to come forward,” Trump said during a campaign rally in Wisconsin last month, as he was attacked by a protester.

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, has been criticized for failing to address allegations of inappropriate behavior in the workplace.

In a statement to The Associated Press, Ivanka Trump said the accusations were “without merit and we have been clear that they are completely false.”

“We have seen tremendous support from our family and friends, including our daughter, and they have done everything in their power to make sure this never happens again,” she said.

Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said the allegations against her father are “completely false” and that the campaign was “doing everything they can to get to the bottom of it.”

Trump’s attorney, Mark Corallo, said the Trump organization is cooperating with the Justice Department.

“President Trump has been fully cooperating with and cooperating with all relevant authorities,” Corallo said in the statement.

“No one is above the law and the President is fully cooperating.”

In a letter to DeVos and her staff, the Justice and Treasury Departments said they will work with the Office of the Special Counsel to determine whether any laws or regulations were broken.

DeVos, meanwhile, has denied any wrongdoing.

“These allegations are completely untrue and false and false allegations, and I have not engaged in any wrongdoing,” she told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview on Monday.

“My name is on that memo.

I signed it.

I have never done anything like that.”
