Donald Trump's Personal Assistant Is Under Investigation for 'Serious Financial Crimes'

Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue

John McEntee, the former UConn quarterback whose trick shot video became a viral sensation in 2011, was sacked from his job as personal assistant to President Donald Trump on Monday, according to multiple reports.

The investigation is not related to Trump, the sources added.

He made sure Trump had markers with him while travelling in order to sign autographs, delivered messages to him while at the White House and even set clocks during daylight savings time, according to the Journal.

McEntee was escorted off the White House premises and was not given time to get his things, leading him to leave the grounds without his coat, according to the Journal.

Not long after his reported ousting, Trump's reelection campaign manager, Brad Parscale, announced that McEntee had been hired to join the president's 2020 team.

"Mr. McEntee wasn't as well known as the others, but had been a constant presence at Mr. Trump's side for the past three years", the newspaper reported.

Also Tuesday, the Trump campaign announced that Katrina Pierson, who served as the campaign's 2016 national spokeswoman, will rejoin the effort as a senior adviser.

"We don't comment on personnel issues", she said.

White House aides were stunned when they learned of McEntee's sudden departure, two sources tell CNN. He is someone who has earned the trust of the president and is a top-notch professional, Sean Spicer, former White House press secretary, told Politico in October. The news came as a surprise to many, including Tillerson who was reportedly not even given a reason for his exit. A star high school quarterback, he worked at Fox News as part of their social media team before quitting to volunteer with the Trump campaign.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly implemented "a stricter security-clearance policy" when he took over the role. "We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".
