"We frequently face rumour and innuendo about senior administration officials", principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said.
The White House had no immediate reaction and said it had no personnel announcements.
"General McMaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians and that the only Collusion was between Russia and Crooked H [Hillary Clinton], the DNC [Democratic National Committee] and the Dems", Trump tweeted.
"The United States will expose and act against those who use cyberspace, social media and other means to advance campaigns of disinformation, subversion and espionage", McMaster said.More news: Dropbox, cloud storage company and tech unicorn, files for IPO
As for talk of a White House in upheaval, Sanders pointed out the tax cuts passed late previous year: "If they want to call it chaos, fine, but we call it success and productivity and we're going to keep plugging along". After Mattis met with Biegun at a think tank event he was convinced Biegun would be a good fit for the national security adviser role, the associate said.
She continued that accusations that the White House is in chaos are misguided.
The President has privately expressed irritation with McMaster stemming from differences in "personality and style", a senior Republican source previously told CNN.
NBC reported Thursday that Ford Motor Company Vice President of International Affairs Stephen Biegun is one likely successor to McMaster.
Trump has been at odds with McMaster since the three-star general took the reins from former adviser Michael Flynn last February.
