Republican Congressman Charlie Dent (PA-15) announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he is stepping down from Congress within the next couple of weeks.


In September, Dent said that he would finish out his term, but would not seek reelection in 2018.

With the latest developments in the Trump White House it looks like Dent has had enough. In an interview with CNN, anchor John Berman said, "This congressman here, no fan of the president, basically saying I can't take anymore of this. I'm leaving earlier than I thought."
