Trump Reportedly Has a Plan to Fire Jeff Sessions and Replace Him With EPA Chief Scott Pruitt

It should come as no surprise that more shakeups are likely in the wings at the Trump White House, but the nature of the shakeups are very clear — according to sources speaking to Vanity Fair.

President Donald Trump has reportedly been discussing a plan to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who he’s long been displeased with, and replace him with EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

Additionally, sources say, the next people likely to be on the chopping block are Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, and the president’s daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

“Trump wants them out of there. He thinks they’ve been getting hit too hard,” a friend of the president said of Javanka.

Meanwhile, a source relayed that the couple intends to stay. “They’ve damaged us so much already. What else can they say about us?” Jared allegedly said to someone who spoke with him recently. “And if we go back to New York, they’ll keep attacking. So what do we have to lose?”

Additionally, Trump ostensibly met with former U.N. ambassador John Bolton in the Oval Office last Tuesday, looking to offer him a job. In turn, Bolton said he would only accept if he could be secretary of state or national security adviser. With the nomination of Mike Pompeo to head State, there’s only one possibility – McMaster’s job.

Hold onto your butts, folks. This ride is far from over.
