The Trump presidency has been a wild one, that’s for certain. We The People have woken up day after day wondering if we were going to turn on the news and see something that we couldn’t un-see.
This has been the reality for the last two-plus years thanks in no small part to a steady stream of leaks pouring out of the Oval Office.
Now, after months of unending, clandestine betrayal, a culprit has emerged.
The New York Times‘ Annie Karni and Maggie Haberman wrote on Thursday evening:
President Trump’s personal assistant, Madeleine Westerhout, whose office sits in front of the Oval Office and who has served as the president’s gatekeeper since Day 1 of his administration, resigned on Thursday, two people familiar with her exit said. Ms. Westerhout’s abrupt and unexpected departure came after Mr. Trump learned on Thursday that she had indiscreetly shared details about his family and the Oval Office operations she was part of during a recent off-the-record dinner with reporters staying at hotels near Bedminster, N.J., during the president’s working vacation, according to one of the people, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss White House personnel issues.
“The breach of trust meant immediate action: Ms. Westerhout, one of the people familiar with her departure said, was immediately considered a “separated employee” and would not be allowed to return to the White House on Friday,” Haberman and Karni added.
The ousting of Westerhout certainly doesn’t signal an end to the controversies in the White House, but it should allow the President at least a brief sigh of relief.
