Donald Trump’s deputy national security adviser, Matt Pottinger, resigned Wednesday after the president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress began to affirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

Pottinger was among White House officials dismayed by the assault on the Capitol and Trump’s incitement of the protesters, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Pottinger bought a house in Utah and relocated his family there in October, and had intended to resign on Election Day regardless of the outcome, according to three people familiar with the matter.

He was persuaded to stay at the White House longer by his boss, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, the people said.
