Forced Out: Obama Announces Hagel's Resignation

President Barack Obama announced Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel's resignation at the White House Monday morning. Obama called Hagel "exemplary" and "a great friend of mine" who helped steer the military amid a time of great transition at the Pentagon. Hagel is stepping down amid criticism of the president’s national security team on a series of global issues, including the threat posed by the militant group known as ISIS. Hagel, the only Republican on the president's national security team, has served in the job since February 2013.

But it was announced Sunday that a judge would need to review the evidence that was presented before deciding what portions would be released. A legal expert said the uncertainty that comes with having a grand jury may bring “allegations of conspiracy between the police department and the prosecutor.” The jury has not yet decided whether or not to indict Wilson and are planning to reconvene on Monday, sources told NBC News.
