In White House shake-up, Kelly's departure now seems certain

John Kelly

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is soon to resign, according to numerous reports on Friday.

Trump isn't saying immediately who will replace Kelly, a retired Marine general who has served as chief of staff since July 2017. Nick Ayers, the vice president's chief of staff, is seen as a leading candidate.

He calls Kelly "a great guy". The relationship seems to have frayed beyond fix.

Rumors of Chief of Staff's impending departure and misery in the job have been swirling for months, but President Trump put an end to speculation over John Kelly's fate on Saturday. He is also expected to host a dinner with senior White House staff, including Kelly, when he returns from Missouri on Friday night.

Kelly was reportedly questioned about the obstruction of justice arm of the special counsel's investigation, which CNN reported Thursday was first launched by former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe shortly after his boss, James Comey, was fired.

Kelly and Trump have grown tired of each other.

Trump also said that State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert was his pick to replace Nikki Haley as the next USA ambassador to the United Nations. They said Kelly could be out before the holidays.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.

Kelly's tenure working for Trump was pocked with controversies, and officials were often amazed at how he managed to survive.
