John McEntee, a personal assistant to President Donald Trump, was sacked and escorted from the White House on Monday.

McEntee is under investigation for "serious financial crimes", according to CNN. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation.

Aide John McEntee, whose slight public profile belies his relatively long service with Trump going back to the early days of the original campaign, told colleagues that he had had trouble gaining necessary security clearances, according to the Wall Street Journal, which broke the news.

McEntee has been one of Trump's few mainstays over his political career.
