Michael Fanone, a D.C. Metropolitan Police officer who was working the day of Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol ― and who went on to question lawmakers about what happened that day ― has resigned from the police force.
Fanone, 41, submitted his resignation Monday, three months after he returned to duty.
The 41-year-old said he suffered physical and emotional injuries from the protests on Jan. 6, The Washington Post reports.
The 20-year police veteran will join CNN as an on-air contributor to discuss law enforcement issues, a CNN representative confirmed to HuffPost.
Fanone made frequent media appearances in the months after the Capitol protests, denouncing the people who participated and the lawmakers who hit back at his testimony. He claimed to the Post his candor did not sit well with fellow officers.
“Clearly there are some members of our department who feel their oath is to Donald Trump and not to the Constitution,” he said. “I no longer felt like I could trust my fellow officers and decided it was time to make a change.”
It’s not clear when he will begin at the network.
