- White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said in the statement.

Sadler, a White House communications aide, was quietly let go Tuesday, almost a month after she made an imprudent comment about the Arizona Republican's health during a staff meeting.

During an internal meeting at the White House last month, Sadler allegedly said that McCain's opinion on the nomination of Gina Haspel as Central Intelligence Agency director was irrelevant because "he's dying anyway".

Sadler's comments came in the aftermath of McCain urging fellow senators to reject Haspel's nomination because he thought she did not adequately answer for her role in the CIA's torture program after the 9/11 attacks during her confirmation hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

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

Trump, who was infuriated by the release of the information to the news media, called Sadler and other communications staffers into the Oval Office to ask who might have leaked Sadler's comments.
