Say one thing for the way President Donald Trump operates: he doesn’t tolerate dissension in his ranks unless there is a good reason for it.
That being the case, as the National Security Council, and the White House staff are pared down to pre-Obama levels, it looks like the RIFs will be used to rid the administration of those who disagree with the president and make no secret of that fact.
The White House has identified and will soon part ways with the “anonymous” official behind a recently released book and a “resistance” focused editorial published in the New York Times, former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova claimed Monday morning.
DiGenova made his claim on WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall,” but senior White House officials declined to comment on the topic when asked by the Daily Caller.
In the book, “A Warning,” released in November, the anonymous official states there is a group of White House staffers actively hoping for President Donald Trump’s “downfall.”
On Friday, the Vindman twins who were featured as part of the failed Democrat impeachment attempt, were forcibly removed from the White House grounds and reportedly reassigned elsewhere within the government.
Trump and National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien are cutting 70 Obama-era holdovers from the National Security Council, The Washington Examiner reported Monday morning. The most public of these firing was that of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman on Friday. Vindman testified during the impeachment inquiry that the president and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani sought to pressure Ukraine into opening an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
To what end this man is still in the government, and not in the White House itself, has not been made clear, but what has been is that one by one the leaders in the administration, many of whom are holdovers from previous administrations, are being found and silenced by any legal means available to the president and his trusted staff.
