CNBC: Biden fires Social Security boss, a Trump appointee who refused to resign
The White House said the Social Security commissioner, Andrew Saul, “undermined and politicized” the agency’s benefits.
The Washington Post reports, “Saul said in an interview Friday afternoon that he would not leave his post, challenging the legality of the White House move to oust him. As the head of an independent agency whose leadership does not normally change with a new administration, Saul’s six-year term was supposed to last until January 2025. The White House said a recent Supreme Court ruling gives the president power to replace him.”
