Stephen Akard resignsThe acting State Department watchdog Stephen Akard has resigned after serving in the role for less than 3 months following the firing of the previous inspector general by President Donald Trump at the recommendation of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

State Department Office of Inspector General (OIG) staff were told of Akard's decision in an email Wednesday morning from one of the department's top officials, a source familiar with the departure tells CNN.
It is unclear why Akard is resigning. The email from Akard's deputy, Diana Shaw, said that he would be returning to Indiana.
