"The further away, the less likelihood of being fired," says Assistant Dean Mark Jacobson of U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper's frequent travel amid persistent rumors that he will either quit or be fired after the election. "That’s my take – you stay out of the line of drive-by fire." Jacobson was quoted in the Politico article "Esper plans more official travel as calls grow for him to stay put." 10/09/20
