Longtime Trump aide fired over financial crime investigation

President Donald Trump's personal assistant John McEntee was abruptly escorted out of the White House on Monday night - and now a new report from CNN claims that he was ousted due to an investigation into what may be "serious financial crimes".

"The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue", the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a White House official. He was escorted off the White House grounds before he was allowed to collect his belongings, even leaving without his jacket, the Journal reported. In particular, WSJ indicated there was an issue with his security clearance.

"As we build out our operations for the 2018 midterm elections and the 2020 reelection campaign, we are pleased to welcome back two outstanding members of our 2016 team", campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. Mr. McEntee didn't return a call seeking comment. He will join the Trump campaign instead. The almost five-minute video, which you can relive below, featured McEntee doing everything from throwing footballs into barrels and basketball hoops to opening doors with his throws.

McEntee is just the latest aide to leave the White House amid issues with his security clearance, after White House chief of staff John Kelly enacted a series of reforms following the scandal involving disgraced White House staff secretary Rob Porter.
