Donald Trump's Body Man John McEntee Leaves White House; Rejoins Campaign

Lost in the chaos of Rex Tillerson's unceremonious firing via Twitter today was a close Trump aide getting expelled from the White House "without being allowed to collect his belongings".

The Wall Street Journal reported the White House fired him over security issues.

A longtime personal aide to the president, McEntee was sacked from the White House on Monday over an investigation led by the Department of Homeland Security into "serious financial crimes", according to CNN. WSJ wrote that the aide "indicated to colleagues that it was an issue in his background". It must be nice for any White House employees who-and this is just a hypothetical-wake up every morning wondering if the day might end, for them, in handcuffs, to know that if and when their sins are found out, the boss will just quietly shunt them to another organization he controls, where they can say whatever without having to worry about running afoul of those pesky "federal laws" anymore. Kelly said last summer that "he realized a large number of staffers still held interim clearances after more than seven months in the administration".

President Donald Trump's longtime personal aide John McEntee was sacked because he is now under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes, a source familiar with his firing told CNN. It also comes after communications director Hope Hicks and economic advisor Gary Cohn left their posts.

Trump's campaign hired him soon after he was sacked from his White House job.

"It was announced today by the Trump Campaign that John McEntee will re-join the team and serve as the new Senior Advisor for campaign operations based in D.C." he tweeted. McEntee joined the president's small team three years ago during the earliest days of the campaign.
