Future Ex-White House Chief of Staff Reportedly Criticized Comey Firing

Future Ex-White House Chief of Staff Reportedly Criticized Comey Firing

Trump announced Friday that Kelly would replace Reince Priebus as chief of staff, the latest in a series of staff moves aiming to reset the White House's communications and agenda efforts.

President Donald Trump is looking for a fresh start with a new White House chief of staff.

"So we're really hearing really good things about General Kelly", she says, "and so I'm optimistic".

When Lizza refused to disclose a source that had provided him with details of Scaramucci's private dinner with Trump and several Fox News personalities, Scaramucci zeroed in on former chief of staff Reince Priebus, whom he has long feuded with, calling him "a f-- paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac".

Kelly has already earned deference from senior White House staff and even the president himself.

It isn't the first time Kelly's demonstrated his penchant for imposing order and, when necessary, his willingness to stand up to the president.

As I have written before, the frenzy surrounding talks of collusion has created a scandal without a crime.

In April, Kelly bluntly challenged members of Congress critical of the Trump administration's aggressive approach to immigration enforcement to either change the laws or "shut up". "Anthony 'the Mooch" Scaramucci, the foul-mouthed banty in the snappy blue suit who took the job just 10 days ago, wore out his welcome in record time.




Hours after Trump said deportations of people in the US illegally were being carried out as a "military operation", Kelly said the USA would not enlist the military to enforce immigration laws. It won't be easy to recover order within the administration and achieve a measure of success.

Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney praised Priebus, but said Trump "wants a little bit more discipline, a little more structure in there". "And anybody who's been a violator, who's been a part of public backbiting, part of undermining, who's been part of feathering their own nest at other people's expense, I hope they'll all be gone".

"I hope that Gen. Kelly will absolutely, forcefully clean the place up", Corker said. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security.

Priebus held the post for fewer than 200 days, the shortest tenure for any president's first chief of staff since the position was formally established in 1946.

But Cohen wondered how long Trump would go before undermining Kelly.

On July 23, President Trump took to social media to accuse GOP lawmakers were not shielding him from controversy or embarrassment. "He instinctively likes to be his own chief of staff and he's a pretty very bad one". "I think the chief of staff and the president should have a very unique, very close relationship in terms of what they discuss and then how it flows down to and back up from the staff".

"The thing that General Kelly should do is not try to change Donald Trump", former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said on NBC's "Meet the Press".
