Driving the news: Trump announced on Thursday that Sarah Sanders was leaving her role as press secretary at the end of June.

Investigators were told by a government photographer that empty spaces in President Trump's inauguration photos were intentionally removed to make the crowd appear larger, after receiving complaints from the president and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, CNN reports.

Why it matters: The admission from the photographer confirms dozens of photos and reports following the inauguration that there were, in fact, smaller crowds. The administration initially denied claims that the crowd size was smaller than what could be seen from the stage, and Spicer called it "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration."
