President Reportedly Will Name Milley As Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman

"John Kelly could resign in the coming days", she says, warning West Wing employees are bracing for "a pretty big staff shakeup" if and when he leaves.

Kelly had sought to bring more order and stability to a White House that has often been chaotic under the unpredictable Trump. McGahn had refused to publicly deny the reporting.

Kelly is the latest high-ranking White House official known to have given information for Mueller's probe.

A source told Reuters last month that Trump was considering a replacement for Kelly.

US officials say President Donald Trump will nominate the Army chief of staff, Gen. Mark Milley, as his next top military adviser.
