Multiple Staffers For House Speaker Mike Johnson Reportedly Resign

By Danielle

Three of House Speaker Mike Johnson’s top policy staffers have reportedly resigned six months into his speakership.

According to Punchbowl News, the aides will leave Johnson’s office by the end of May.

“Brittan Specht, Jason Yaworske and Preston Hill — all of whom also worked for former Speaker Kevin McCarthy — are heading to Michael Best Strategies, a lobbying firm with offices in D.C. and around the country,” the outlet stated.

Punchbowl News reports:

The departure, which is striking in size and in experience, strips Johnson of a significant amount of expertise in his domestic policy shop. Specht was McCarthy’s policy director and was key in crafting the Fiscal Responsibility Act, which raised the debt limit and set budget levels for two years.

Yaworske is a well-respected adviser to the speaker on the appropriations and budget matters. As the House Appropriations Committee begins marking up the FY2025 spending bills, Yaworske’s expertise on government spending is in demand.
