Donald Trump's Personal Assistant Is Under Investigation for 'Serious Financial Crimes'

White House Personal Aide to the President John Mc Entee and White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino leave the White House on Nov. 29 2017 in Washington DC

A longtime personal aide to Donald Trump was abruptly fired and escorted from the White House Monday afternoon, only to be hired immediately by Trump's 2020 presidential campaign, according to multiple media reports and a campaign statement.

The former personal assistant was removed due to trouble with his security clearance and is now under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes, CNN reported Tuesday.

Senior administration officals told the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday that McEntee was escorted out of the White House on Monday.

Brad Reed is a writer living in Boston. Two sources said McEntee was pushed out because of issues with his security clearance, making him just the latest aide to be forced out because of difficulties obtaining a full security clearance.

McEntee was UConn's leading passer in 2011, but he threw for just 2,110 yards at 6.3 yards per attempt with 12 touchdowns and eight picks. McEntee was a well-known player and the video has been viewed seven million times on YouTube, according to the Hartford Courant. He will join the Trump campaign instead.

After graduating, McEntee took a job with Fox News as a production assistant.

Minutes after news of his departure broke, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations. Mr. McEntee didn't return a call seeking comment.
