A White House ethics lawyer reportedly resigned last week.
James Schultz, whose work included ethics and financial disclosure issues, is planning to go back to his private practice at Cozen O’Connor, a Philadelphia-based law firm, Politico reported.
“That was something Don [McGahn, the White House counsel] and I discussed very early on,” Schultz told the news outlet.
“I was interested in continuing with private practice and saw this as a tremendous opportunity to go serve and get things up and running and the plan was to move on about this time.”
He added that people typically stay in these positions for a year to 18 months.
