The White House says whether BP replaces its CEO is up to BP, but says the company can't change its responsibility to plug its oil well, clean up the damage in the Gulf of Mexico and compensate those who've suffered as a result.
Spokesman Robert Gibbs declined comment Monday on reports that BP is replacing its embattled chief executive, Tony Hayward.
Gibbs says that regardless of who leads the company, BP still has a responsibility to restore the Gulf and compensate its residents.
