Letter From McMaster Said Susan Rice Could Keep Her Top-Secret Security Clearance

  • Trump Holds Cabinet Meeting With New Chief of Staff

"Sometimes he drives me nuts", Trump said this week, according to a White House official.

"Gen. McMaster is confident that Ezra will make many further significant contributions to national security in another position in the administration", the official said.

The national security adviser had previously attempted to oust Cohen-Watnick earlier this year, as Gray notes, "but was rebuffed by President Trump after White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner intervened to keep" him in his job.

Also gone is Derek Harvey, who held the Middle East portfolio at the NSC, and who also was an Iran hawk, and who may assume another role in the administration. The news was first reported by Jordan Schachtel, a former editor at Breitbart, which Bannon ran before joining the Trump campaign previous year.

The source also said that Kelly and General James Mattis, the secretary of defense, have worked out a system where one of them stays in Washington while the other is overseas, in an effort to reduce the pattern of mixed foreign policy and military messages that have emanated from the White House since Trump took office.

Higgins, a director for strategic planning in the NSC's strategic-planning office, was sacked last month after he penned a memo warning of globalists, leftists and Islamists working on a "Maoist insurgency" to undermine the Trump administration, according to Rosie Gray.




Nunes refused to identify the sources of his information, and the White House would neither confirm nor deny that Cohen-Watnick or Ellis had aided the Republican congressman. Such a move could earn McMaster a fourth star. McMaster, whose relationship with the president has been strained at times, has long wanted to remove the pro-Flynn hard-liners from his staff.

All four officials were considered Trump allies who shared the anti-globalist views of Flynn and Bannon.

The right-wing media ecosystem kicked into hyperdrive on Thursday declaring war on President Donald Trump's National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.

In a June tweet, Trump called the revelation that Rice and other Obama senior officials were unmasking members of his team the "big story... the "unmasking and surveillance" that took place during the Obama administration".

NBC News reported Wednesday that the president recently suggested that Gen. John W. Nicholson Jr., the commander of US -led forces in Afghanistan, be fired. In the memo, Higgins claimed the Russian Federation story was a part of efforts to subvert Trump's nationalist agenda. The president has publicly asked why the United States should still be in Afghanistan after almost 16 years.
