The British Ambassador to the United States Sir Kim Darroch resigned from his position on Thursday  following the leak of his secret e-mail to the media.

The leaked e-mail that weekend criticized President Donald Trump’s government and called the White House “careless and incompetent”.

This letter leaked to the Mail on Sunday newspaper, and immediately received broad responses, including from Donald Trump who stated “we won’t deal with it”, referring to Kim Darroch.

Trump also called him “a very stupid man”.

The official investigation was carried out by the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Parliament also called for an official investigation from the police amid anger over deteriorating diplomatic relations.

Resignation  of Kim Darroch occurred three days after the leak of this email.

In his letter to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Darroch stated that “it was impossible” for him to continue to carry out the duties in that position.

What exactly is this leak and what are the possible consequences?

Leaks or hacking?

The British Foreign Ministry repeatedly called this event a “leak” instead of “hacking”. Initially, this incident was described as a “crime” but the Ministry of Foreign Affairs just launched an official question on Sunday.

Minister of State for European Affairs and America Alan Duncan denied that the disclosure of the e-mail was part of a conspiracy or “Brexit plan” and said the leak was “despicable”, adding that “the first premise of the leak came from within”.

British Ambassador to the United States Sir Nigel Kim Darroch described US President Donald Trumpas “incompetent”This came in a memorandum sent by Darroch to the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office and leaked to the British newspaper.

“We do not really believe that this administration will become more normal, less dysfunctional, less moody, less cracking, worse diplomatically,” the British newspaper The Hill reported on Sunday, citing reports that the British ambassador wrote in a memorandum to senior politicians in Britain.

It was also reported that ambassador Darroch warned his country’s officials that the career of the US president could end in shame.
