‘He Wants a Killer’

Vanity Fair: “Trump has recently told advisers he wants a ‘killer’ to steer the White House’s response to Robert Mueller’s investigation and craft a midterm election message for him to stump on this fall. For Trump, there’s a growing urgency to fill the role. His efforts to stymie Mueller’s probe have so far failed, and the specter of impeachment looms if Democrats win back the House in November. Ivanka, who’s been frustrated with Chief of Staff John Kelly, has told her father that he needs people around him that will put his interests above their own.”

“The president’s top choice for the strategist position is Jason Miller, who served as communications director for Trump’s presidential campaign.”

Said an outside adviser: “He wants a killer, and Jason is a killer.”

Miller withdrew from consideration of a White House post after it was revealed during the transition that he had an extramarital affair with former Trump aide A.J. Delgado.
