WASHINGTON, DC. - The restructuring of the White House communications shop began in earnest on Tuesday when Kelly Sadler, the communications aide who came under fire for a flippant comment about Sen. John McCain’s health, was let go, according to two administration officials.

Lawyers for the White House counsel’s office were spotted inside her office in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in the afternoon — the standard move when someone suddenly departs the White House.

In recent weeks, President Donald Trump has ordered a wide-ranging housecleaning of his communications team. Additional junior and mid-level aides are expected to be fired or reassigned to jobs in federal agencies in the coming weeks. But instead of a mass exodus, people are expected to leave one by one or in small groups as the White House tries to avoid a spate of negative headlines, or the impression that it’s firing people for allegedly leaking information without any tangible evidence.
