“I had several discussions with the president on this very topic today,” Conway said on Fox News. 

Asked by "The Story's" Martha MacCallum if she expects personnel changes as a result, Conway said, “I do, actually. Yes, I do.”

Sadler said during an internal meeting that McCain’s opposition to Trump’s pick for CIA director, Gina Haspel, “doesn’t matter” because “he’s dying anyway.” 

Lawmakers and former government officials have sharply criticized the comments and called for a public apology from Sadler and the White House.

The White House has not offered one, instead doubling down on its argument that the issue is the leak in the first place.

Deputy press secretary Raj Shah said during Monday’s press briefing that the matter was handled “internally,” but would not elaborate. 

On Fox News, Conway defended Trump’s diatribe against leakers. Those who work at the White House should be loyal to the president and his agenda, she said.

“It’s not so much leaking as using the media to shiv each other, and that was going on quite a bit at the beginning of this administration and it’s less so now,” Conway said.

"But I think the president is on solid ground here."
