Wow this is big… Sarah Sanders and Raj Shah are leaving the Trump admin.
Two of the most visible members of the Trump administration are planning their departures, the latest sign of upheaval in a White House marked by turmoil.
Press secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are both heading for the exits, according to sources inside the White House and close to the administration. Sanders, who has become a confidante of President Trump since the departure of former communications director Hope Hicks, has told friends that she plans to leave the administration at the end of the year.
Shah is also considering his exit, but he has not yet settled on an exact date. Neither Sanders nor Shah immediately responded to repeated requests for comment.
Several other lower-level positions in the communications department left vacant in recent weeks are likely to remain unfilled, with more departures expected in the coming weeks, according to a former official.
I’m not sure what this says except that the Trump admin has a HUGE turnover rate – some of it for bad reasons, and some of it not. So it’s time for speculation – who will replace Huckabee Sanders? Let us know in the comments!!!
OK… so this is interesting – Sanders responds in a tweet:
Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future? I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my “plans to leave the WH” without even talking to me. I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) June 14, 2018
Notice – she doesn’t deny the report. But she doesn’t confirm it either. Very interesting.
Also it’s worth noting that they have denied these reports before, and then fired the person a week later LOL! Oh well, that’s MAGA! for ya!
