Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Raj Shah plan to leave

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 03:  White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders conducts a news conference in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House January 3, 2018 in Washington, DC. Sanders took questions from many reporters about President Donald Trump's statement about former White House Senior Advisor Steve Bannon, in which he said 'When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.'

CBS News is reporting that Press secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah have both let it be known that they’re preparing to leave. Sanders expects to get out by the end of the year. Shah has not yet set a date.
The task of defending Donald Trump’s shifting statements and daily lies first fell to Sean Spicer. The podium was then attended by Anthony Scaramucci, whose term was so short he was gone before he officially began. Though it may seem as if Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been there for a decent slice of forever, she’s actually been on the job less than a year. She started at the end of July in 2017. Still, she’s outlasted Spicer, who made it only six months before leaving his home in the bushes to run for the exits.
