The acting head of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will step down at the end of this month, Fox News confirmed Tuesday.
Chuck Rosenberg will leave his position effective Oct. 1, a DEA source told Fox. A reason for his departure was not given.
Rosenberg's resignation was first reported by The New York Times, which claimed that he was "disillusioned" with President Donald Trump.
According to the paper, Rosenberg is a close confidant of former FBI Director James Comey, whose dismissal by Trump in May is the focal point of an ongoing investigation into alleged collaboration between Trump's campaign and Russian officials.
The Times also reported that Rosenberg sent an email to all DEA employees decrying comments Trump made in July about police treatment of suspects.
