  • John McEntee special assistant and personal aide follows US President Donald Trump to Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base

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.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment saying, "We don't comment on personnel issues".

Also Tuesday, the Trump campaign announced that Katrina Pierson, who served as the campaign's 2016 national spokeswoman, will rejoin the effort as a senior adviser.

A since-fired State Department employee said this morning that Tillerson found out he was sacked when he saw Trump's tweet. The role meant McEntee was almost constantly at the President's side.

His exit follows another original Trump campaign aide.

McEntee, who went by Johnny as UConn's starting quarterback in 2011, was working at Fox News after graduation when he joined Trump's campaign as a volunteer and quickly got hired to a full-time position in August 2015.
