In a week that saw the ouster of Rex Tillerson from the State Department, rumor is now flying  that another high-level official at the Trump administration’s job might be on the line.

David Shulkin, Secretary of Veterans Affairs, has been embroiled in a bubbling controversy involving a trip he took to Europe with his wife. And President Trump has allegedly told his aides that he might want to replace Shulkin as part of a deeper overhaul of his Cabinet, the Washington Post reports.
