John Kelly was interviewed by Robert Mueller's team

Trump chooses new Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, against Mattis wishes

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has been questioned by special prosecutor Robert Mueller team of investigators, CNN is reporting.

Some think Kelly's departure may come quickly, though it could also slip until after the holidays, these people said.

The special counsel's team questioned Kelly specifically on an episode involving Trump after the New York Times reported that past year Trump sought to fire Mueller - a report that allegedly drew Trump's ire at then-White House counsel Don McGahn, who didn't publicly deny it. McGahn had refused to publicly deny the reporting.

According to Axios, Kelly will be replaced by Nick Ayers, who now works as chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence.

Kelly's interview is of particular note, as he was appointed by the president in the summer of 2017, while numerous other Trump-tied figures caught in the Mueller probe are being questioned about their time with Trump during the 2016 election.

Kelly is reportedly being honored at a special dinner this week meant to thank him and other departing staff - although CNN says that he and President Trump are no longer on speaking terms.

President Donald Trump inched closer to his long-teased major White House shake-up Friday, gearing up for the twin challenges of battling for re-election and dealing with the Democrats' investigations once they take control of the House. Kelly's shifting accounts caused his credibility inside the West Wing to plummet, and it never truly recovered, according to officials.

Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general, has been the president's top aide since late July 2017.

But in the last months, Kelly has seen his status as chief of staff diminish. He replaced Reince Priebus, who had held the job for six months.

"I'm going to be announcing at the Army-Navy game", Trump said. Investigators reportedly wanted to know about reports that Trump had attempted to fire the special prosecutor.
