President Reportedly Will Name Milley As Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman

Trump chooses new Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, against Mattis wishes

A separate report from ABC says a White House senior staff meeting this morning was cancelled.

Trump ignored the rumors as he left the White House, but teased reporters with an important announcement about the future of his Joint Chiefs of Staff. Kelly is a retired four-star General.

According to Axios, Kelly will be replaced by Nick Ayers, who now works as chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence.

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.

"Sure, Trump says he wants him gone, and Kelly swears and leaves and says he's not coming back".

Kelly's tenure working for Trump was pocked with controversies, and officials were often amazed at how he managed to survive.

TBD! The source further added that "nothing will stop" the Good American designer from expanding her family with Thomson. Tristan Thompson has been fined $15,000, for flipping off fans during a game earlier this week.

Kelly is the latest high-ranking White House official known to have given information for Mueller's probe. Trump has chafed at Kelly's management style and resisted some of his moves to instil discipline in the West Wing and contain chaos.

This is is far from the first time Kelly has been rumoured to be on the brink.

Kelly, a decorated Marine Corps general, is widely regarded as one of the most well-respected and qualified members of the Trump administration. But he has a number of detractors who have been trying to convince the president he'd be a disaster.

Barr, who also worked as AG for former President George HW Bush, replaces Jeff Sessions.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert has been nominated as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. As we reported right after the midterms, Ayers' backers have been telling the president he has the sharp political instincts to remake the West Wing to better combat the hazards ahead.

Nauert, 48, joined the State Department past year with no government experience after a career as an anchor and correspondent at Fox News.
