WASHINGTON, Oct 17 (Reuters) - U . S . Energy Secretary Rick Perry has told President Donald Trump he will step down , though the exact timing of his departure was unclear, Bloomberg reported on Thursday.

In recent weeks, Perry had found himself engulfed in the largest scandal yet to threaten Trump's presidency, with White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney saying earlier on Thursday that Trump had directed Perry to work on Ukraine policy with Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

Trump's Ukraine policy is at the centre of an impeachment inquiry being conducted by the House that has stemmed from a July 25 call in which Trump pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate the family of one of Trump's political rivals in the 2020 election.

Critics have accused Giuliani, who was not a U.S. government official, of conducting a shadow Ukraine policy.

Perry had been a rare Trump Cabinet member who was virtually free of ethics investigations that weighed on other Trump officials, but he failed to achieve a goal of subsidizing U.S. coal and nuclear energy plants facing a rash of closures.
