Trump Quietly Searching for New Chief of Staff
Reince Priebus is toast. President Donald Trump is quietly looking for a new Chief of Staff.
A source close to the White House told us Thursday that the president has asked his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and Vice President Mike Pence to look for someone with legislative experience to replace Reince Priebus.
Our source said President Trump is furious with Reince Priebus for not stopping the appointment of a special prosecutor by the Department of Justice to probe his campaign team’s dealings with Russia.
“Trump is furious with everyone but especially Reince Priebus. He thought Reince should have seen the special prosecutor appointment coming and may be figured out a way to stop it,” our sources said.
To avoid further disruptions, the president is said to have told Kushner and Vice President Pence to go about the search quietly.
‘The White House is afraid of the news leaking out so they are going about the search quietly,” our source added.
President Trump has not been able to move his agenda forward because of all the negative information coming from the White House and the intelligence community, and the president blames his staff.
“He (President Trump) believes his staff has not managed the situation well. For example, he was told by Reince Priebus that there will be no problem with firing FBI Director James Comey and that is not the way it turned out,” our source said.
Our source said Reince also told president Trump that the Russian issue would blow away quickly and he needed not concern himself with it.
“He was wrong in both instances. That is why his job is now on the line.”
