A retired admiral who berated President Donald Trump as "embarrassing" to the country has stepped down from his position on an influential Defense Department advisory body.
 
Pentagon spokesperson Lt. Col. Michelle Baldanza said, Admiral William McRaven, who supervised the 2014 Special Forces raid in Pakistan that killed Al-Qaeda kingpin Osama Bin Laden, resigned last month from the Defense Innovation Board.
 
The Innovation Board brings together top private sector technologists and scientists to advise the Pentagon and the Secretary of Defense.
 
The resignation was effective on August 20, four days after McRaven published a scathing open letter to Trump in the Washington Post.
