White House chief of staff Kelly to resign in days, reports CNN

White House chief of staff Kelly to resign in days, reports CNN

USA officials say President Donald Trump will nominate the Army chief of staff, Gen. Mark Milley, as his next top military adviser. He is weighing that advice, sources said at that time, more seriously than before the midterms.

West Wing officials widely believe that chief of staff John Kelly's departure is imminent and that Nick Ayers, chief of staff to Vice President Pence, will replace him.

Kelly answered a narrow set of questions from investigators in recent months after White House lawyers objected to Mueller's initial request to do the interview earlier this summer, the sources said.

He assumed his current position in July 2017 after being promoted from US Secretary of Homeland Security - a job he was appointed to after President Trump was inaugurated.

The news comes as Kelly and Trump experience their ugliest fallout yet, with the two reportedly no longer on speaking terms.

The White House senior staff meeting Friday morning was canceled, according to three officials.

Cobbs says people should always follow instructions and take precautions when using medical devices. Unfortunately, this woman became one of these fatalities, dying just one month after the surgery.

Kelly has seen his status as chief of staff diminished in recent months, with the President circumventing numerous policies and protocols the retired Marine Corps general put in place when he entered the West Wing past year.

Most of Mueller's other interviewees were part of the Trump election campaign or presidential transition.

Kelly's tenure working for Trump was pocked with controversies, and officials were often amazed at how he managed to survive. But the two men are generational peers, have a measure of respect for one another, and they have bonded over their shared ideology, especially on immigration issues, and their mutual grievances toward the media and political establishment.

Trump is further expected to announce Heather Nauert as the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations on Friday, replacing Nikki Haley. He was photographed looking grim-faced in the lobby of Trump Tower as the President declared there were "good people" on both sides of the racist violence.

"She's very talented, very smart, very quick, and I think she's going to be respected by all", Trump said.
