“‘Game of Thrones’ has nothing on this White House and this administration,” Wallace said on Friday.

His reference to the hit HBO drama came after a tumultuous week for Trump, including the resignation of communications director Hope HicksHope Charlotte HicksHope Hicks defends accuracy of her congressional testimony Nadler subpoenas Lewandowski, former White House official for testimony House panel to go to court to enforce McGahn subpoena, Nadler says MORE, senior adviser Jared KushnerJared Corey KushnerTrump Jr. dismisses conflicts of interest, touts projects in Indonesia Trump administration releases new 'public charge' rule making it easier to reject immigrants The road from Jerusalem to Riyadh still runs through Ramallah MORE being stripped of his top-secret security clearance, and rumors about possible departures for chief economic adviser Gary Cohn and national security adviser H.R. McMaster. 

“What's clear to me in all of this is that the long knives are out for Jared Kushner," Wallace said. 


The New York Times reported Wednesday that Kushner’s family business got millions in loans from foreign companies after they took White House meetings with him.

Foreign leaders have also discussed how easy it would be to manipulate Kushner due to his business ties and lack of foreign policy experience, according to The Washington Post.

“These are all planned leaks and they’re all of an effort to diminish Jared Kushner’s role,” Wallace said.

The president's son-in-law was downgraded from his top-secret security clearance along with dozens of other White House staffers following a crackdown on interim clearances in the wake of staff secretary Rob Porter's resignation amid domestic abuse allegations.
