(WTRF)- According to NPR, Four commissioners including the chair of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts have been asked to resign or be fired.

NPR received a copy from the chair of the U.S Commission of Fine Arts, Justin Shubow, who received a letter from  from Catherine M. Russell, director of the White House Office of Presidential Personnel, requesting his resignation.

NPR says the letter states, “Should we not receive your resignation, your position with the Commission will be terminated effective 6:00 pm tonight.” Dated on May 24.

Shubow was  appointed to chair the commission by former President Trump in 2018.

The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) is an independent federal agency that advises the president, Congress and the D.C. government “on matters of design and aesthetics.”

Shubow told NPR As chairman of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, I was shocked and dismayed to learn that three of my fellow commissioners, along with myself, have been asked to resign or be terminated by the President. In the Commission’s 110-year history, no commissioner has ever been removed by a President, let alone the commission’s chairman. Any such removal would set a terrible precedent.”
