White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has made one thing clear—he’s not taking staff leaks lying down.

The former Department of Homeland Security head gave a speech to White House staff on Friday, in which he warned them about the very serious consequences ahead for anyone caught leaking internal information.

Check it out (per The Daily Caller):

Kelly, a retired Marine Corps four-star general, reportedly told the staff that he did not care how long each staff member has been with the Trump camp or how they made it to the White House. Each member of the staff works with one common purpose: to serve at the pleasure of the president, he said Friday.

The former Marine Corps general said members of the staff should be loyal to their country first, the president second, and their own individual needs and priorities should come last.

Kelly wasted no time in showing how serious he is about loyalty to the President.

He fired Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci after he’d been on the job only ten days.

He’s also reportedly let two National Security Council aides go because they were reportedly working outside the chain of command.
