Trump aide who joked about ‘dying’ John McCain leaves White House under mysterious circumstances

"White House Strategic Communications Director Backs Kelly Sadler Over "Dying" McCain Comment: Report" class="local_link" target="_blank">Mercedes Schlapp was behind leaks internal conversations to the media.

The Arizona senator, who was held prisoner and tortured during the Vietnam War, is battling brain cancer.

In a meeting discussing Senate votes on then-Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel, Sadler downplayed possible McCain opposition, saying "it doesn't matter, he's dying anyway".

McCain, 81, was the 2008 GOP nominee for president and is now being treated for a form of brain cancer that is frequently deadly.

In a second paper, a group of scientists described methane in the atmosphere of the red planet has been varying. The Insight and ExoMars missions will teach scientists more about the planet's geology and methane.

The White House has not confirmed or denied whether Sadler made the remark on McCain.

Sadler's insensitive comment about McCain set off an administration-wide scandal about leaking.

White House aide Kelly Sadler attends a forum called Generation Next at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington, March 22, 2018. She would go on to serve in the administration for nearly a month until her recent departure, according to CNN.

Sadler apologized to the McCain family privately, but McCain's daughter Meghan asked for a public apology. "It happened yesterday", former vice president Joe Biden, who was on the presidential ticket that beat McCain in 2008, said following the comment.

The effort to find leakers has led to an acrimonious atmosphere at the White House, aides have told CNN. He did not chastise Sadler for her remarks about McCain, White House aides said. John McCain could resurface in a new role after leaving her White House job.

Sadler was responsible for compiling and distributing talking points to allies of the Trump administration.

Conway would not say if such comments were disqualifying for working in the administration.

But people who don't trust their coworkers and think they're about to be fired rarely leak, so the White House should be good.
