Sarah Sanders, Raj Shah Latest Trump Staffers Said to Be Eyeing Exit

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, has responded to a CBS News report that said she is planning to leave the Trump administration.

In a Wednesday night Tweet, Sanders asked if CBS - the network that first reported the news - knew something she didn't know.

Not to be picky... but that's not an explicit denial of the report.

Sanders has been a figure of rising importance in President Donald Trump's administration since she took over from her predecessor Sean Spicer. She did not speak to the veracity of CBS's report that Raj Shah plans to go, and Shah has yet to confirm or deny.

This marks the third time in three weeks that talk of a meeting between McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC ) and White has come up. Prosecutors wouldn't say if they expected a resolution.

Sanders has been the White House press secretary for less than a year. "And it is going to be harder to find good people to replace them", a source close to the administration told CBS News.

Communications director Anthony Scaramucci was sacked last summer after a brief stint at the White House.

Others have departed the White House recently including Hope Hicks, Josh Raffel, Tom Bossert, Michael Anton, John McEntee, Cliff Simms, Steven Cheung, Kaelan Dorr, Natalie Strom, and Tyler Ross.

Sanders, who has been in the job for less than a year, is the second press secretary for the Trump administration.
