**Donald Trump transition team in disarray after key adviser ‘purged’
National security adviser Mike Rogers leaves in ‘Stalinesque purge’ as talks at Trump Tower continue amid uncertainty over role of president-elect’s children
Donald Trump’s transition to the White House appeared to be in disarray on Tuesday after the abrupt departure of a top national security adviser and amid continuing questions over the role of his three children and son-in-law.
Former Republican congressman Mike Rogers stepped down from the president-elect’s transition team without explanation, but one report attributed it to a “Stalinesque purge”.
A week after his election, Trump and Vice-President-elect Mike Pence were huddled at Trump Tower in New York to work on key appointments as the US Senate was due to resume business in a still shellshocked Washington.**
