Report: White House adviser H.R. McMaster preparing to leave position


WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- White House security adviser H.R. McMaster could be leaving the White House as soon as next month, according to NBC News.

This news surfaces one day after White House communications director Hope Hicks resigned from her role with the Trump administration. Officials tell NBC that auto industry executive Stephen Biegun could serve as McMaster's replacement.

McMaster originally joined the White House to replace Gen. Michael Flynn. Flynn was forced to resign after it came to lightthat he misled Vice President Mike Pence about conversations he held with the Russian ambassador.

The national security adviser and President Trump haven't always seen eye to eye during his tenure. In February, McMaster called Russia's interference of the 2016 election "incontrovertible."

Trump responded on Twitter saying, "General McMaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians and that the only Collusion was between Russia and Crooked H, the DNC and the Dems. Remember the Dirty Dossier, Uranium, Speeches, Emails and the Podesta Company!"

Shortly after these comments were made by President Trump, CNN reported that the White House was looking for someone to replace McMaster. The report stated that the Trump administration was considering moving him to a position in the Army or Defense Department.

McMaster has held his position as a national security adviser since Feb. 2017.
