Just another one of Trump's employees to leave. 

The Register explains:

The chief information officer of America's Department of Homeland Security has become the latest Trump administration appointee to resign.

Richard Staropoli, the former US secret service agent who at one time vowed to run the department "like a hedge fund," will be leaving at the end of the month. Staropoli had been appointed to the CIO position by the Trump White House in May of this year. Prior to that he had worked at hedge fund Fortress Investment group as the CISO and head of global security.

Staropoli had also spent 25 years working in the US Secret Service. According to his bio, Staropoli's duties included work with the Presidential Protective Division, the Counter Assault Team, and the Secret Service's Hostage Rescue Unit.
