NSA H. R. McMaster Exposed, Time is Short
People are growing more and more suspicious by the day of President Trump’s National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster.
Several reports last week painted General McMaster (US Army) as a man who is trying to consolidate power in the West Wing, and to undermine President Trump’s specific goals when it comes to national security and foreign policy.
He is acting like he wants to limit the President’s authority, ala the Democrats in the Senate, and if President Trump is really thinking about sending him to Afghanistan to manage the 17 yrs war, well, that might be far enough away for the 3-Star General to stop causing trouble here at home.
This week, we learned from a few news accounts that Gen. McMaster has been busy in recent weeks cleaning the National Security Council (NSC) of any holdovers from The Flynn Era.
Last Wednesday, he fired NSC Intelligence Director Ezra Cohen-Watnick, and earlier this month he fired Rich Higgins for a memo wrote about the “globalists” who were trying to undermine The Trump Administration.
Some reports say that McMaster is merely getting rid of dead weight analysts who have been presenting the President with foreign policy plans he does not like.
Other reports say Gen. McMaster himself cannot seem to please our President, and he is removing anyone who might take President Trump’s side.
What really is worrisome is this the following report from Circa, which reveals that Gen.McMaster wrote a letter protecting Barack Hussein Obama’s former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice.
From Circa: “The undated and unclassified letter from McMaster was sent in the mail to Rice’s home during the last week of April. Trump was not aware of the letter or McMaster’s decision, according to two senior West Wing officials and an intelligence official, who spoke to Circa on condition that they not be named.
“I hereby waive the requirement that you must have a ‘need-to-know’ to access any classified information contained in items you ‘originated, reviewed, signed or received while serving,’ as National Security Adviser,” the letter said. The letter also states that the “NSC will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information.”
It looks like Gen McMaster is being insubordinate to his Commander-in-Chief in here and that is deadly.
Ms. Rice is under investigation by the House Intelligence Committee for her role in unmasking the names of some Trump campaign officials caught on incidental foreign surveillance, and the President has suggested she may be guilty of violating the law.
The Big Q: Why would his national security adviser go behind the Commander-in-Chief’s back to ensure that Ms. Rice retains her clearances?
The Big A: We wait to see how the Marine 4-Star manages the Army 3-Star.
President Trump needs loyal people around him always, Gen. McMaster may not be suitable, best he retires before he is fired.
