Trump's longtime personal assistant fired over security issues

Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue White House aide John McEntee fired, under investigation

On the day that it was announced that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had been ousted by President Donald Trump, it was also reported that Trump's longtime personal aide John McEntee had been escorted from the White House after he was sacked Monday over an "unspecified security issue".

The investigation is not related to Trump, the sources added.

Mr. McEntee was removed from the White House grounds on Monday afternoon without being allowed to collect his belongings, a White House official said.

McEntee was an early Trump assistant in the presidential campaign.

Two sources said McEntee was pushed out because of issues with his security clearance, making him just the latest aide to be forced out because of difficulties obtaining a full security clearance. Mr. McEntee didn't return a call seeking comment.

The Peel Hunt Reaffirms "Buy" Rating for Morgan Sindall Group (MGNS)
The stock of Polar Capital Holdings plc (LON:POLR) has "Hold" rating given on Monday, December 11 by Numis Securities. Wells Fargo maintained Parker-Hannifin Corporation (NYSE:PH) on Friday, October 6 with "Market Perform" rating.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to comment, saying, "We don't comment on personnel issues". He also had issues with his security clearance.

"For context, it's about having fun", a former White House staffer said quickly as an explanation. That means Kushner, whose portfolio includes the solving the Middle East peace process, no longer has regular access to the nation's most closely guarded secrets as the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues its almost 15-month review of his application for permanent clearance. The news came as a surprise to many, including Tillerson who was reportedly not even given a reason for his exit.

But the faithful Trump aide didn't go far as he was immediately hired by the President's reelection campaign team.

The 2020 reelection campaign team includes newly appointed manager Brad Parscale, who ran the social media wing last time around.

Kelly sought to limit access to classified information for aides with longstanding interim security clearances and several aides have since left the White House after it became clear their applications for a full security clearances would not be approved.
