Senior White House staffer William McGinley is quitting next week after serving in President Donald Trump’s administration for nearly three years, according to a report from The Hill.
McGinley served as the chief liaison between Trump’s White House and the heads of the various departments and agencies that make up the executive branch of the federal government.
The Hill reported that McGinley told friends he plans to leave his post within the next week or two to return to the private sector, though it is unclear if he has potential employment already lined up.
As the chief liaison, officially referred to as the White House Cabinet secretary, McGinley helped coordinate the flow of documents and messaging between the White House and other Cabinet secretaries, particularly with regard to the administration’s agenda and priorities.
McGinley also served as the head of the monthly meetings involving the various Cabinet secretaries, as well as the occasional televised Cabinet meetings with President Trump.
McGinley assumed his role in the administration when Trump was inaugurated. He had joined then-candidate Trump’s campaign in 2016, prior to the Republican National Convention, where he helped smooth over potential challenges and rule changes some had proposed in an effort to deny Trump the nomination.
Prior to his work with Trump, McGinley served as a top election law expert and attorney with the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
A number of top administration officials praised McGinley for his work, with Energy Secretary Rick Perry praising his “reputation for getting results, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross noting his “perseverance,” and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson likening him to “a strong oak” tree.
The Hill noted that McGinley is the last of the original top dozen staffers in the White House to leave the administration. Despite all of the turmoil and turnover among White House staff, McGinley kept a low profile.
McGinley was also reportedly the go-to guy in the White House whenever an ethical controversy would be turned into an overblown “scandal” by the media. He reportedly advised now-former officials like Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, and Veteran Affairs Secretary David Schulkin on ethics practices, as well as Carson, who managed to survive the overwrought media scrutiny and avoided having to resign.
It remains to be seen who President Trump will pick to take McGinley’s place.
Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta is also leaving the Trump administration amid renewed criticism over his role in convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s lenient plea deal in 2008, Trump announced on Friday morning.
