In today’s video of the day, contributor Adam Taxin takes on news that former DHS head Jeh Johnson said that Gen. John Kelly should remain in the White House as long as Trump is there.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says John Kelly should remain White House chief of staff after a scandal forced one of his top aides to resign for allegedly abusing two ex-wives.
“I think as long as Donald Trump is president, our government is best served if John Kelly is in the job of chief of staff,” Johnson said during a CNN appearance Sunday. “It may be a minority view among my Democratic friends, but that is my view.”
Johnson, a friend of Kelly’s, appeared to express sympathy for Kelly, who is facing questions about why he didn’t fire former White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter long ago. Some reports say Kelly knew for months about the allegations against Porter.
Johnson said he didn’t know what he would do if he was presented with the allegations, as Kelly reportedly was in the fall following initial steps in the FBI’s background check process.
For starters, it really doesn’t matter if Jeh Johnson approves or not. So is this just another smear of Trump?
