One of the vice president’s senior aides is departing the White House.
According to administration sources quoted by Axios, Josh Hsu, the Vice President’s top legal counsel, is to depart his present position before the end of the year.
Wednesday brought word of Hsu’s intended resignation.
According to Axios, the Democratic attorney has worked for Harris since the Vice President was a California senator.
He is leaving the Biden-Harris administration to resume his career as an attorney in private practice.
In a statement sent to Axios, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain praised Hsu’s services to the administration.
“Josh is an incredible legal mind and this entire White House has greatly benefited from his talent,” Klain said.
Klain also praised Hsu for what many perceive to be Biden’s most tangible achievement to date.
“I’ve been through many judicial confirmations, and Josh’s perspective on the White House’s Supreme Court confirmation team ensuring the historic confirmation of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, was very impressive.”
Hsu played a part in the confirmation of Brown Jackson, a progressive judge who became the first Supreme Court Justice appointed by President Joe Biden.
Even at the highest levels, the Biden administration has at times battled to retain employees.
Politico reports that the administration’s struggle to retain black professionals at the top levels has caused alarm among Biden’s team.
