Trump fires White House assistant, who promptly rejoins Trump's campaign

WSJ: Another Trump insider booted — but why?

President Trump's personal assistant, John McEntee, was sacked Monday, because he is now under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for financial crimes, CBS News' Jacqueline Alemany confirmed Tuesday. Other reports indicate the firing happened because he is under investigation for serious financial crimes. 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".

It's impossible to speculate what kind of potential financial crimes jettisoned McEntee from the White House, but they must be pretty serious if the Department of Homeland Security is running point on the investigation. Kelly said last summer that "he realized a large number of staffers still held interim clearances after more than seven months in the administration".

John McEntee was sacked because he is being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes, CNN noted.

Both new members of the Trump Campaign will be based in Washington, DC, and will begin their new roles in the coming days.

The White House did not comment on the firing.

Trump's personal assistant - also known as a body man - McEntee accompanied the president nearly everywhere and had been an aide for him since early in the campaign.

McEntee is the latest original Trump campaign aide to depart the White House; he follows Communications Director Hope Hicks, who resigned recently.

"We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country, " campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.
