Wow. Acting Navy Secretary ThomasModly has submitted his resignation a day after a leaked audio showed him calling the ousted commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt "stupid" in an address to the ship's crew.

Modly should be removed unceremoniously for these shocking remarks—especially after failing to protect sailors’ safety & health. He has betrayed their trust. DoD IG must immediately launch an investigation.

"A defense official familiar with Modly's remarks offered his opinion of Modly's address, saying the acting secretary 'should be fired. I don't know how he survives this day'."

NEW TONIGHT: ThomasModly's trip to Guam didn't just cost him his job. It cost taxpayers more than $243,000, the Navy estimates. The executive jet that Modly traveled in costs about $6,946.19 per flight hour, Navy says. Round-trip flight: Some 35 hours.

Modly calls @IgnatiusPost ⁩ at 1 am to explain why he fired Capt. Crozier, saying he wanted to act before Trump did, knowing that his predecessor was fired for getting "crossways with the president. I didn't want that to happen again."

Captain Crozier spoke up to protect his crew Acting Navy SecretaryModly’s words and actions were insulting to those under his responsibility—It’s good he resigned We will continue to fight the Trump admin’s ongoing attacks on those who speak the truth

Scoop: Acting Navy Secretary ThomasModly has submitted his resignation a day after a leaked audio showed him calling ousted commander of USS Theodore Roosevelt "stupid" in address to ship's crew, a US official and a former senior military official tell me.

We’re demanding an Inspector General Investigation because the ongoing Pentagon inquiry is a whitewash—framed to justify Modly’s decision. He should have waited for the facts before firing Crozier. He & Esper must be the ones held accountable.

In a sign of losing the plot, a Navy official said Modly’s remarks — that he delivered to 4800ish people, who cheered Crozier as he departed the ship — “were intended to be private, between the secretary and each member of the crew.”
