Deputy White House Chief of Staff Loyal to Priebus Leaving

Posted March 31, 2017

Katie Walsh, the Deputy Chief of Staff in Donald Trump's White House, has left the administration just nine weeks in.

Priebus, Bannon and Kushner all said they needed Walsh on the outside because it became abundantly clear during the healthcare debate that the administration was getting hammered with no air support.

Her departure comes on the day the Trump administration is reeling from the most explosive leak yet, a report that two White House officials played a role in showing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes intelligence reports tying the Obama administration to surveillance of his successor past year.

Walsh, a native of St. Louis, was not only second in command to Chief of Staff Reince Priebus but also served as his chief of staff on the presidential campaign, and with Sean Spicer was one of several campaign aides handpicked to join Priebus in the Trump administration.

Walsh was one of the few women holding a senior role in the Trump White House and was seen as a strong force for organization, though some Trump loyalists viewed her with suspicion because of her roots in the Republican establishment.

Priebus and other White House officials stressed that Walsh was the one who made a decision to leave the administration.

The source said, "there won't be many people here who miss her".
