Twitterstorm as WH Aide Who Made 'McCain's Dying Anyway' Remark Steps Down

West Wing aides said they were carrying out a hunt for leakers and taking other steps to stop unauthorized disclosures, such as reducing the size of communications staff meetings and even pushing people off the team.

Sadler has been under fire since her remark about Senator John McCain's terminal illness during a closed-door meeting last month.

During a Wednesday morning appearance on CNN's "New Day" with John Berman, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said former press aide Kelly Sadler, who left the White House after allegedly insulting Sen.

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

It wasn't immediately clear whether she was canned or resigned. An official said the departure was not spurred by her McCain comments but instead was fueled largely by an internal dispute with the White House director of strategic communications, Mercedes Schlapp, over the fallout from the comment about McCain. Sadler reportedly said that McCain's stance "doesn't matter" since he's "dying anyway".

Last month, Sadler reportedly said McCain's opposition to President Donald Trump's nominee to lead the Central Intelligence Agency wouldn't matter because the senator was dying.

"Kelly Sadler is a world-class person who made a flippant off-hand remark in private", Scaramucci tweeted.

Her father is "all about character and bipartisanship and something greater than yourself", Meghan McCain said, before adding a stinging message to the critics: "Nobody's going to remember you".

Sadler's comment was then leaked to the press and took over the news cycle for multiple days. At the meeting, Sadler accused Schlapp, her boss, of leaking the material, causing a rift between the two.

White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci speaks after an on air interview at the White House in Washington, U.S., July 26, 2017. Schlapp, who was in the room when Sadler made her comment, denied being the source of the leak.
