Trump chooses new Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, against Mattis wishes

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley listens to a question while testifying on Capitol Hill in Washington before a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the Army's fiscal 2018 budget

John Kelly is expected to resign as White House chief of staff in the coming days, according to CNN and Axios.

An unfettered Trump installed him in place of the ousted Jeff Sessions less than 24 hours after the polls closed on November 6 in the first move of an expected overhaul of Cabinet secretaries and senior White House aides.

The move could be announced at a scheduled White House dinner tonight with Trump and senior White House staff. McGahn had refused to publicly deny the reporting.

President Trump is expected to nominate General Mark Milley, who now serves as Army Chief of Staff.

But reports that Kelly and Trump are no longer speaking are overblown, the people said.




Compounding the rumors were reports surrounding Kelly taking the day off on Friday, as the president traveled to Missouri.

Like all of those interviewed, the person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive personnel matters.

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

But in the last months, Kelly has seen his status as chief of staff diminish. As Trump prepares for his 2020 reelection campaign, some advisers have counseled him to replace Kelly with a sharper operative who can steer the administration through the daily - and hourly - political fights sure to come.

Trump, who often likes to build drama and suspense by teasing his decisions, tells reporters at the White House Friday that he's going to be making an announcement at Saturday's Army-Navy game in Philadelphia. Investigators reportedly wanted to know about reports that Trump had attempted to fire the special prosecutor.
