Before he left office, Barack Obama packed the NSC from 100 members to 236. Now, President Trump is draining the swamp and rolling back the expansion of the NSC. So far he has fired 0 of the Obama holdovers and still counting. last week, he fired Alexander Vindman and his twin brother, tossing them out on their ear. The liberals in congress are celebrating Vindman day in Washington.
President Trump also dumped Ambassador Gordon Sondland after his testimony before the Democratic Inquisition. I look for many more members of the swamp leaving and very soon, too. It's hard to run a country when you are surrounded by traitors to the American people. Vindman made the absurd statement that President Trump was subverting American policy on the Ukraine. He should have been fired for extreme stupidity. The president can't subvert foreign policy since the president sets foreign policy.
Chuck Schumer has called for the IG of the Intel Community to investigate Trump firing whistleblowers. The only problem with that is there are no whistleblowers including the one they call the whistleblower since President Trump is not a member of the Intel community and everyone who has been fired serves at the pleasure of the president and he can fire them any time he wants and he does not even need a reason.
The Trump administration has removed 70 Obama holdovers at the National Security Council (NSC), Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard reported on Monday.
President Trump and National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien have removed 70 Obama holdovers from the NSC, which previously boasted a staff of roughly 200 people, according to the Washington Examiner.
As Breitbart News reported:
First and foremost, Vindman admitted openly during his testimony before HPSCI last year under questioning from ranking GOP member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) that he leaked the contents of President Trump’s call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to two officials who were not in the White House. Vindman claimed during his testimony then that these two officials he leaked the call to were “cleared U.S. government officials with appropriate need to know.” While Vindman claimed under oath he did not know who the whistleblower was, Schiff intervened saying that answering Nunes’s questions identifying the individuals outside the White House to whom Vindman leaked the Trump-Zelensky call details may out the identity of the whistleblower who filed the original complaint.
The person who filed the complaint has been long been–and was at the time of this hearing–publicly reported to have been CIA official Eric HWSNBN. According to a follow-up report published this week by the outlet that first reported HWSNBN's identity, RealClearPolitics, Vindman was the person who leaked the call details to HWSNBN.
