“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.
