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.

On Tuesday, Sadler was quietly let go over the comment.

White House spokesman Raj Shah today said, "Kelly Sadler is no longer employed within the Executive Office of the President".

It wasn't immediately clear whether she was canned or resigned. Schlapp, however, denied the claims, saying that she has never used "that word to describe anyone on the White House staff".

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

McCain has made headlines in recent months after his unfavourable feelings about Trump were revealed in his new book "The Restless Wave".

White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci speaks after an on air interview at the White House in Washington, U.S., July 26, 2017.

The aide, Kelly Sadler, had made the misguided remark, reportedly intended as a joke, almost a month ago. At the meeting, Sadler accused Schlapp, her boss, of leaking the material, causing a rift between the two.

"I'm not going to get into a back-and-forth because people want to create issues of leaked staff meetings", she said.

After the comment was leaked to the media, the president demanded a crackdown on the "leakers".

Sanders later chastised White House communications staffers for releasing the information to reporters. Anybody who betrays that I think is a total and complete coward.

A senior White House official told the New York Times more exits were expected in the coming weeks.
