US Energy secretary Rick Perry is expected to announce his resignation next month

U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry is expected to announce his resignation in November, Politico reported on Thursday, citing three unnamed people familiar with his plans, ONA reports citing CNBC.

It said while Perry’s contacts with Ukraine have drawn him into the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump by House of Representatives Democrats, the three people said his expected departure was not related to the Ukraine controversy.

Deputy Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette is expected to replace Perry, three people familiar with the matter told Politico.
