Patrick Shanahan ne sera pas le prochain secrétaire américain à la Défense.

Le Pentagone n'a donc pas été dirigé par un ministre confirmé par le Sénat depuis le début de l'année.

Cette décision avait été annoncée par Donald Trump sur Twitter.

Le président américain Donald Trump a annoncé mardi, en pleine période de tension au Moyen-Orient, le remplacement de Patrick Shanahan à la tête du Pentagone par le ministre adjoint chargé de l'armée de terre, Mark Esper. "J'aurais été très heureux de devenir ministre de la Défense, mais pas aux dépens de mes enfants", a-t-il ajouté.

Selon le quotidien USA Today, le FBI enquêtait, dans le cadre du processus visant à confirmer dans ses fonctions Patrick Shanahan aujourd'hui divorcé, sur des accusations de violences conjugales datant de 2010. Pourtant, rappelle USA Today, chacun des ex-conjoints assure avoir été frappé par l'autre.

Le Washington Post fait état, quant à lui, d'un incident particulièrement grave, au cours duquel le fils adolescent de Patrick Shanahan aurait frappé sa mère - l'ex-épouse de Shanahan - avec une batte de baseball, la laissant sans connaissance, baignant dans une mare de sang. "De mauvaises choses peuvent arriver dans les bonnes familles (.), et c'est une tragédie, vraiment", a déclaré Shanahan dans les colonnes du journal. Il ajoutait que la divulgation de cet incident "ruinerait la vie de mon fils".
