Is H.R. McMaster On His Way Out of the White House?

Nicolle Wallace of NBC News reports that more shakeups are coming:

The White House is preparing to replace H.R. McMaster as national security adviser as early as next month in a move orchestrated by chief of staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis, according to five people familiar with the discussions.

….A leading candidate to become President Donald Trump’s third national security adviser is the auto industry executive Stephen Biegun, according to the officials. Biegun, who currently serves as vice president of international governmental affairs for the Ford Motor Company, is no stranger to the White House. He served on the National Security Council staff from 2001 to 2003, including as a senior staffer for then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice.

Nobody else has confirmed this yet, so maybe it’s just a bum steer from Wallace’s sources. Then again, Trump has dismissed this as “fake news,” and that’s often a pretty good indicator that something is true. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
