Energy Secretary Rick Perry said Monday he “absolutely” encouraged President Donald Trump to call Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in July to discuss energy issues, but not to pressure authorities there to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, and said he was not resigning.

Speaking in Vilnius, Lithuania, at an energy conference that included officials from Ukraine, Perry said he told Trump to call Zelenskiy.

“I asked the president multiple times, ‘Mr. President, we think it is in the United States' and in Ukraine’s best interest that you and the president of Ukraine have conversations, that you discuss the options that are there,’” Perry said, adding that he is not stepping down. “I’m here, I’m serving,” he said.

Several news organizations reported last week that Perry planned to resign by the end of November.

“and said he was not resigning” -  which probably means he’s resigning by the week’s end.

I’m betting on the late Friday afternoon news dump.

The question will be whether he’s allowed to resign or if Trump will not accept his resignation so he can then say he fired him ala John Bolton.
