Several White House staffers are purged from the West Wing amid Chief of Staff John Kelly’s crackdown on those without top level security clearance.
On Wednesday, sources said many staffers were either terminated or reassigned because of their interim security status.
Witnesses say at least one person from the Office of the First Lady were relieved of duty.
In addition, reports say there is also a list of White House personnel who are under review for potential firing or reassignment.
Last month, Chief of Staff Kelly issued a memo laying out new guidelines for security clearances in the wake of the Rob Porter scandal.
