Kellyanne Conway, President Trump's long-time White House counsellor, has announced her departure from the White House Sunday evening.

"I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month. George is also making changes. We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids," so Conway in a statement posted to Twitter. "This is completely my choice and my voice. In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama," Conway ended her statement.

Her husband George Conway, a conservative lawyer and a frequent prominent Trump critic, announced he's leaving the anti-Trump "Lincoln Project" minutes later to "devote more time to family matters," but added that he will "continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately."

The Lincoln Project, an American political action committee formed by Republicans, has released a video ad questioning Donald Trump's relationship to Ghislaine Maxwell, who has recently been charged with crimes of enticement of minors and sex trafficking of children.

The ad was shared Friday to Twitter with the caption "What does Ghislaine Maxwell have on @realDonaldTrump?" and shows Trump berating multiple women while saying about Maxwell "I just wish her well, frankly."
