White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned over the hiring of a new top communications aide, sources tell the Associated Press.

The move came as Trump booster and Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci was expected to be tapped for White House communications director, Fox reports.

Speculation about Spicer’s status with the White House has run rampant for months, but one source described the appointment of Scaramucci was the deciding factor.

News broke overnight on the resignation of Mark Corallo, who had been the lead spokesman on behalf of Trump’s long-time personal attorney Marc Kasowitz and the legal team. Corallo, who was previously a spokesman for the Justice Department, reportedly objected to public criticisms of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. His resignation comes days after Trump told The New York Times that he didn’t want Mueller investigating Trump family business ties outside the Russia scope.

Kasowitz, meanwhile, is stepping back to take a lower-profile role.

This is a developing story. 

God Bless.
