White House official: Trump aide in charge of surrogate operations leaving post
Boris Epshteyn frequently appeared on TV on behalf of the administration.
— -- Boris Epshteyn, the special assistant to the president in charge of surrogate operations is leaving his post, a senior Trump administration official told ABC News Saturday.
He may assume a different role in the White House, though. "We are exploring opportunities within the administration," the official said.
Epshteyn has served various roles, including senior adviser on the Trump-Pence transition team and director of communications for the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
A lawyer who received his J.D. from Georgetown University, the Russian-born Epshteyn frequently appeared on TV: first as a surrogate during the campaign, then as a paid staffer.
Epshteyn has yet to publicly comment about departing his post.
