San­ders, Shah both deny re­port they are plan­ning to leave the White House

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion’s two most-vis­i­ble spokes­peo­ple are re­port­edly plan­ning to leave the White House — a re­port press sec­re­tary Sarah Huck­abee San­ders promptly de­nied.

CBS News re­ported Wed­nes­day evening that both Mrs. San­ders and deputy press sec­re­tary Raj Shah are not long for their jobs. Ac­cord­ing to CBS, Mrs. San­ders “has told friends that she plans to leave the ad­min­is­tra­tion at the end of the year.”

Mrs. San­ders de­nied the re­port in a tweet Wed­nes­day night.

“Does @CBSNews know some­thing I don’t about my plans and my fu­ture?” she said. “I was at my daugh­ter’s year-end Kinder­garten event and they ran a story about my ‘plans to leave the WH’ with­out even talk­ing to me. I love my job and am hon­ored to work for @POTUS.”

The net­work said Mr. Shah also is con­sid­er­ing an exit, though he hasn’t set­tled on a date. But Mr. Shah also told peo­ple close to them that the re­port is fake news, a source told The Wash­ing­ton Times.

The CBS re­port was based on “sources in­side the White House and close to the ad­min­is­tra­tion.” The White House press office has been wracked by in­fight­ing in re­cent weeks and sev­eral open lower-level po­si­tions will not be filled soon, CBS re­ported.
