The firing of Reince Pribeus is far more shocking and likely to have greater ramifications within the Trump administration, and the public's confidence in Trump's stability as a leader. Hence, he wants to give Reince Priebus a chance to provide his reasons that would prove his innocence over the alleged leakage.
That brings me to the most significant leak in a lifetime: The Washington Post's Woodward and Bernstein reports that led to the resignation of Richard Nixon. "I think you'll see the three of these men coming to Trump as a prearranged united front".
Donald Trump has not said a word about Scaramucci's alleged rant, he has announced Friday afternoon that General John Kelly is the new Chief of Staff, which means Reince Priebus is out. He was forced to resign from his post in February amid claims he misled the administration over his communications with Russian Federation before Trump took office.
Kelly is now the secretary of Homeland Security. "He's been a true star of my administration".
"I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff". Congress does, and we will enforce the laws that are passed by Congress, and I am offended when members of this institution [the House of Representatives] exert pressure and often threaten me and my officers to ignore the laws they make and I am sworn to uphold, ' Kelly said.
But I guess it didn't work out.
"It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this president and our country", Priebus said.
Priebus is the second top Trump official to depart in a week. Kelly has been at the forefront of his mind because he's not a dramatic future and he has executed for the president on immigration policy. And, you know, the president was great.
Former chairman of the Republican National Committee, Priebus shook off the negative notion of his departure when he spoke with CNN Friday evening. He wasn't who was known for managing a large organization in a military-style fashion.
And it's important to note that Kelly has a strong relationship with Jared Kushner, the senior adviser, and actually Steve Bannon, the chief strategist. The White House did not respond to requests for an organizational chart. It will now be Kelly's job to try and right the ship and steady the chaos. Later in the day, the New Yorker magazine published a Wednesday interview in which Scaramucci said he had reported Priebus to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice for an alleged "felony".
How does that fit into all this?
Graham, R-South Carolina, also lauded Kelly's accomplishments, saying the general "will bring unparalleled leadership skills to the job".
The two men had travelled together earlier in the day to an appearance in Brentwood, New York. I'll get to the person who leaked that to you.
"That's the only way real tax reform is going to be adopted". "And so he has granted walk-in privileges to a lot of people, most of whom should not have walk-in privileges to the Oval Office".
Kelly will take over the position.
