Mark Meadows in, Mick 'get over it' Mulvaney out as WH Chief of Staff

This anticipated move of Meadows to replace Mulvaney could distract from the current Trump messaging. Mulvaney gets to work on his golf game for the remainder of the Trump term. He can still be subpoenaed, but he’s at least out of the WH.
