White House counsel Don McGahn and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster are weighing leaving the Trump administration as aides have been told to make a decision on whether they intend to leave or stay through the November elections by the end of January, CNN reports.

The report follows a year of heavy turnover in the White House and comes amid reports  quite a few staffers are considering leaving for jobs with better pay, less stress, and better schedules. The Trump White House has seen more first-year staff turnovers than any other administration, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The request by the Trump administration comes, too, as White House chief of staff John Kelly tries to gauge how many departures he will need to fill so he can plan how to stagger the resignations in order to avoid the appearance of a mass exit.

Already, Kelly has to fill positions left open following the departure of top foreign and domestic policy advisers. Kelly wants to do so by the end of January, but President Donald Trump is having difficulty recruiting staff to fill vacancies, and the hiring process is lengthy.

"Kelly is eating bullets every day by himself and doesn't have a lot of help," one person told CNN. "He needs reinforcements."

Trump has publicly aired frustrations about McGahn and McMaster, but CNN says McGahn has compelling legal reasons to stay on as he is a potential witness in FBI special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
