White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her top deputy, Raj Shah, "are both heading for the exits," CBS News reports, citing sources inside the White House and close to the administration. The departures aren't necessarily imminent — Sanders "has told friends that she plans to leave the administration at the end of the year," CBS News says, while Shah hasn't set a date. But President Trump's communications department is already understaffed, with "more departures expected in the coming weeks," a former official predicts. Sanders half-denied the report, tweeting: "Does @CBSNews know something I don't about my plans and my future? ... They ran a story about my 'plans to leave the WH' without even talking to me. I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS."
