Sarah Sanders, Raj Shah preparing to leave White House, CBS reports

CBS reported she planned to leave by year's end and that Shah had not decided on a departure date.

CBS cited a Brookings Institution report revealing turnover in Trump's first year was at 34 percent, four times higher than the first year of his predecessor Barack Obama.

On Wednesday night, CBS News released a report that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as well as deputy press secretary Raj Shah, were both on their way out of their positions.

However, shortly after CBS News ran its report, Sanders complained on Twitter that the network went with its story "without even talking to me" and that she loved her job.

Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to comment from the publication.

Sanders has been the White House press secretary for less than a year.

Sanders took over briefing duties full-time from Sean Spicer after he resigned.

SHE has been one of US President Donald Trump's closest, most prominent aides - and recently had a starring role in peace talks with North Korea. Staffers who have left or been forced out of their jobs have described a dysfunctional and toxic working environment.
