Donald Trump's Personal Assistant Is Under Investigation for 'Serious Financial Crimes'

McEntee's departure was overshadowed by the news that Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and nominated CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace him.

A longtime personal aide to the president, McEntee was sacked from the White House on Monday over an investigation led by the Department of Homeland Security into "serious financial crimes", according to CNN.

President Donald Trump fired his longtime personal assistant, John McEntee, who is reportedly under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for financial crimes. He was known for keeping a remarkably low profile, and the former Fox News production assistant was well-liked in the West Wing, according to Politico. McEntee joined the president's small team three years ago during the earliest days of the campaign. Katrina, who has recently worked with America First Policies, will lead national grassroots outreach in her new role. McEntee was subsequently hired as a senior advisor on Trump's reelection campaign.

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.


McEntee does, however, leave behind shoes that require filling.

"The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue", the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a White House official. He made sure Trump was prepared when he met with people, delivered messages to the president in the residence portion of the White House.

The math requirement probably makes the job a bit beyond the ken of Sean Spicer, but Anthony Scaramucci should be polishing his résumé right now.
