The mainstream media is falling over itself to report on the resignation of the U.S. Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, "on principle" saying he can no longer serve President Trump.

“As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies.

As Reuters reports, a State Department spokeswoman confirmed Feeley’s departure, saying that he “has informed the White House, the Department of State, and the Government of Panama of his decision to retire for personal reasons, as of March 9 of this year.”

And Lee provides more color suggesting Feeley was preparing to resign in September... Narrative busted!
