John Kelly Was Questioned By Mueller Team About Obstruction

All this came the same day that Trump's re-election campaign announced that two veterans of the president's 2016 campaign, White House political director Bill Stepien and Justin Clark, the director of the office of public liaison, were leaving the administration to work on Trump's re-election campaign.

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

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Trump seemed to be directing calls away from Kelly and toward Nick Ayers-Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff-who has always been rumored as Kelly's eventual replacement. "I can give you a little hint: It will have to do with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and succession". "It's not his strength", Trump said.

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

Trump is further expected to announce Heather Nauert as the new United States ambassador to the UN on Friday, replacing Nikki Haley.

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

Mr. Trump re-nominated him in 2017 for a second term. Nick Ayers, the vice president's chief of staff, is seen as a leading candidate.

Barr, who also worked as AG for former President George HW Bush, replaces Jeff Sessions.

The New York Times had reported earlier this year that Trump ordered that Mueller be fired last June, but backed off after then-White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign.

Barr is likely to face tough questions at his confirmation hearing about how he will handle the ongoing special counsel investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election.
