28 Mar 2018: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly threatened to quit according to sources familiar with the events. Kelly blew up at President Donald Trump in an Oval Office meeting that day, and while walking back to his office muttered he was going to quit. Sources said it was not related to the David Shulkin firing that happened the same day. “A senior administration official said that calling it a threat was “probably too strong, it was more venting frustration.” Kelly often says he doesn’t have to be there and didn’t seek the job originally. Details:

  • Kelly packed up some personal belongings, though I’m told that wasn’t necessarily because he was walking out.
  • He was fired up enough that colleagues got allies to call in to calm him down.
  • At one point DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen — perhaps the person in the administration he trusts most — came over to talk him off the ledge.Axios

With Environmental Protection Agency Chief Scott Pruitt also said to be on thin ice, political observers have been guessing which official might be next to depart an administration engulfed in multiple controversies BBC. Kelly and Trump are said to be at odds over whether Pruitt should be forced to step aside, with the EPA official also battered by scandal.” CNBC
