Who The Fuck Has Left The Trump Administration

Not yet…

President Donald Trump is consulting with advisers about whom he should tap as his next chief of staff, with John Kelly expected to depart the administration as early as this summer, possibly even this week, according to people familiar with the matter.

Plans for Mr. Kelly’s exit aren’t yet final, the people said. Aides have fallen out of favor with the president before and yet held on to jobs longer than anticipated as Mr. Trump gets more feedback on his team’s performance.


The two front-run­ners for the job, the peo­ple said, are Nick Ay­ers, who serves as chief of staff to Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence, and Mick Mul­vaney, who heads the Of­fice of Man­age­ment and Bud­get as well as serv­ing as act­ing di­rec­tor of the Con­sumer Fi­nan­cial Pro­tec­tion Bu­reau.

Possible Hagin replacements:

Daniel Walsh, director of the White House Military Office, and Marcia Lee Kelly, White House director of management and administration, are the top candidates for the job, the officials said.


White House Morale Update: More departures are expected by the end of summer.

The Trump White House could resemble a ghost town by the end of the summer — with an increasing number of open jobs, a still broken process to fill them, and a lack of interest from experienced Republicans willing to join a turbulent administration.

In the coming weeks, White House legislative director Marc Short is expected to leave; deputy chief of staff for operations Joe Hagin has already announced his retirement from government; and Trump loyalist Dan Scavino, press secretary Sarah Sanders, and deputy press secretary Raj Shah are also reportedly eyeing the exits. It’s also unclear how much longer Kelly will stay at the White House, given he’s been losing influence with the president. Politico first reported, and two sources confirmed to BuzzFeed News, that Kelly has been using the gym in the Eisenhower Executive Office building during the day. There’s long been speculation that he will depart this summer after serving in the role for a year.

Conservative Partnership Institute, a Republican group, hosted an unusual job fair on Capitol Hill this month for those interested in executive branch jobs. Organizers say about 1,000 people attended the fair, along with about 40 government officials representing 30 different federal agencies, including Sean Doocey, deputy assistant to the president for presidential personnel.

Many of the attendees, according to two sources, were not hill staffers or beltway political operatives, but Trump supporters with little to no government experience who traveled to DC for the occasion.


The new 2018 staff salaries have been posted online! Time to update the list. :nerd_face:


The total turnover just for the Executive Office of the President for the year of 2017, was 149 out of 377! About 39% staff turnover rate. This does not include Cabinet members or their staff.

U.S. Ambassador to Estonia Resigns in Disgust After Trump Anti-Europe Rants

The U.S. ambassador to Estonia, James D. Melville Jr., a career diplomat and member of the senior foreign service ranks, announced to friends Friday that he was resigning amid a string of controversial comments President Donald Trump made about U.S. allies in Europe.



Still the party of one is the most irksome.


Senior U.S. diplomat for Asia Susan Thornton to retire in July

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The senior U.S. diplomat for Asia, Susan Thornton, will retire at the end of July, the State Department said on Saturday, in the midst of critical negotiations with North Korea and China.

Questions have long been raised about whether Thornton, 54, who was picked for the post by former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, would be replaced under his successor, Mike Pompeo. Her appointment had been opposed by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.


Top Justice Department Lawyer Resigns, Latest To Step Down

Scott Schools, a top aide to the deputy attorney general, is planning to leave the Justice Department, according to two people familiar with his decision.

The job title for Schools — associate deputy attorney general — belied his importance as a strategic counselor and repository of institutional memory and ethics at the DOJ. Schools has played a critical, if behind-the-scenes, role in some of the most important and sensitive issues in the building.


Interesting to note, Slate plublished this profile on Schools just last week.


Also Scaramucci and Flynn. This list is unbelievable. How do they function like this? Thanks for what you do!

Hey thanks.

The official White House list comes out every June, Flynn was fired before June and the Mooch never made the list because he didn’t actually officially begin working for the White House office. They are still counted in the posts above. For every high level staffer that leaves their post three to four mid level staffers also change positions or leave the White House. This was my attempt to find all those staffers to get a better picture of the overall turnover rate.


“I have accepted the resignation of Scott Pruitt as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this. The Senate confirmed Deputy at EPA, Andrew Wheeler, will on Monday assume duties as the acting Administrator of the EPA. I have no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting EPA agenda. We have made tremendous progress and the future of the EPA is very bright!”


Oh fuck yeah! What fucking dirt bag, good riddance!


Who is now the Acting Director of the EPA? Meet former coal industry lobbyist, Andrew Wheeler. :grimacing:

WASHINGTON — The departure of Scott Pruitt, the scandal-plagued former head of the Environmental Protection Agency, means that the agency will be led in the coming months by Mr. Pruitt’s deputy, Andrew Wheeler, a former coal lobbyist who shares Mr. Pruitt’s zeal to undo environmental regulations.

But unlike Mr. Pruitt — who had come to Washington as an outsider and aspiring politician, only to get caught up in a swirl of controversy over his costly first-class travel and security spending — Mr. Wheeler is viewed as a consummate Washington insider who avoids the limelight and has spent years effectively navigating the rules. For that reason, Mr. Wheeler’s friends and critics alike say, he could ultimately prove to be more effective than his controversial former boss in implementing President Trump’s deregulatory agenda.

On Thursday afternoon, President Trump tweeted that he had accepted Mr. Pruitt’s resignation and that Mr. Wheeler would take over as acting director of the agency.

Mr. Wheeler is expected to serve in an acting capacity as head of the E.P.A. until President Trump nominates a new agency chief, who must then be confirmed by the Senate. That process could take months and potentially stretch past the November midterm elections.


Here is a fantastic interactual visual of the high level departures from the NY Tines.


:+1::+1::+1: plus a few more plz :pray:

After Scott Pruitt, next his spokesperson leaves - Jahan Wilcox.

The departure of Jahan Wilcox, a veteran political operative who handled communications for the Environmental Protection Agency, follows the resignation of former Administrator Scott Pruitt last week.


President Donald Trump’s legislative affairs director is heading for the exits just as the White House gears up for a major Supreme Court nomination battle and approaches a daunting midterm election landscape.

Marc Short, one of the administration’s longest-serving senior aides and a frequent spokesperson for the president on television, is planning to depart by July 20, according to a person familiar with the plans.
