Today marks 18 months since the inauguration, a wild and historic ride that has produced record White House turnover.

By the numbers: 61% of President Trump’s senior-most aides have left the White House, the White House Transition Project’s Martha Joynt Kumar tells AP. That's much higher attrition at this point than the last five presidents, with Bill Clinton in second at 42%.

Very, very few top aides are left who were there on Jan. 20, 2017, Jonathan Swan notes.

  • Those who were: Jared Kushner, Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller, Don McGahn, Dan Scavino, Johnny DeStefano, Sarah Sanders, Raj Shah, Avi Berkowitz, Lindsay Walters, Madeleine Westerhout, Bill Stepien, Derek Lyons, Peter Navarro, Andrew Bremberg, and Jessica Ditto.

Today is the last official day for Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin and Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short.

Why it matters: General managers, athletic trainers and league officials believe the lack of travel is a driving force behind the high quality of play — an observation that could lead to scheduling changes for next season and beyond.

Senate Republicans, led by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), on Wednesday released an interim report on their probe into Joe Biden and his son's dealings in Ukraine.

Why it matters: The report's rushed release ahead of the presidential election is certainly timed to damage Biden, amplifying bipartisan concern that the investigation was meant to target the former vice president's electoral chances.

The pandemic has caught up with high-wage jobs.

The big picture: Early on, the pandemic walloped hiring across the wage spectrum and in every sector. Now, states have opened up, and the lower-wage retail and restaurant jobs have slowly come back — but higher-paying jobs are lagging behind.
