The Trump administration withdrew the nomination of Chad Wolf to run the Department of Homeland Security, announcing the move on Thursday shortly after he had issued a statement calling the attempted coup at the US Capitol "sickening" and imploring the president to condemn the violence.

Congressional records show Wolf's nomination was withdrawn on Wednesday before his statement was issued, and White House officials said the move was not connected.

"The withdrawal occurred yesterday and was not related at all to Wednesday's events or the Acting Secretary's comments this morning. Acting Secretary Wolf remains the acting secretary and continues to perform the duties of his office," White House spokesperson Judd Deere said.
