According to multiple sources familiar with the matter, the White House is looking to replace National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who is allegedly leaving his post as early as this month.
MSNBC reports that the move was apparently engineered by Chief of Staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis, and that a top candidate for replacement is Ford Motors VP of International Government Affairs Stephen Beigun.
This is just the latest supposed departure in a long, long line of people leaving this administration, including longtime team member and former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, who announced her resignation just yesterday. In a week rife with turmoil for this White House, this new development does not look to make things any less rocky.
