Trump Aide Who Made 'Dying' John McCain Comment Could Get Another White House Job, Kellyanne Conway Says

White House aide Kelly Sadler was reported out of a job with the Trump administration on Tuesday after commenting that ailing Senator John McCain is "dying anyway"—but that apparently may not be the last of her in government.

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday morning indicated that Sadler may qualify for other jobs in the White House.

"It's my understanding that Ms. Sadler is eligible for some of these positions," Conway said at a breakfast held by the Christian Science Monitor, according to The Hill.

Conway elaborated that the potential job opportunities could be within a Cabinet agency and that Sadler would decide if she desired to continue working for the Trump administration. Conway would not comment on why Sadler was ousted from her role as a special assistant to Trump, which involved compiling and disseminating talking points to the administration's allies.

Two people familiar with the matter told The New York Times that Sadler may have been forced out for allegedly telling Trump that White House strategic communications director Mercedes Schlapp was behind leaks internal conversations to the media.

Sadler remained employed in the White House for nearly a month after making an insensitive comment about McCain in a closed meeting on May 10 because he opposed Trump's nomination of Gina Haspel for CIA director. "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway," Sadler said of the senator who is battling brain cancer.

Though Sadler apologized privately for her comment, she never did so publicly, as apparently promised.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders mid-last month would not publicly apologize either, and instead attacked the leakers.

"Look, I can tell you there are a couple of bad actors," Sanders said, then focused on leaking as "some of the most shameful behavior that you could ever engage in."

"It's an honor and privilege to work for the president and to be part of his administration. Anybody who betrays that, I think is a total and complete coward and they should be fired," Sanders said. "We fired people over leaking before. I have personally fired people over leaking before. And we certainly would be very willing to do so again."

White House aides are reportedly looking for leakers and considering ousting more people from the communications staff in order to prevent conversations from leaving their meetings.

More roles could be shifted "in the near future," Conway said.
