Meadows could be Trump's chief of staff, Politico reports

At least one Washington news outlet is reporting that U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, who announced Thursday that he was retiring from Congress but that his "work with President Trump and his administration is only beginning," could be the next White House chief of staff.


Politico said that Meadows had been seen in the West Wing in recent weeks. That, coupled with the widely reported speculation that current acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is on the way out, led to the supposition that Meadows could move in.

"Meadows has been spotted around the West Wing in recent weeks and has been one of Trump’s key advisers throughout the House impeachment process," Politico reported. "He is also close to Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and one of his most trusted advisers, whom the outgoing congressman often speaks with multiple times per week."
