Barack Obama’s Deep State has been sabotaging the Trump administration even since the election.
Operatives have illegally leaked classified information and other embarrassing gossip to create a toxic political environment for Trump to operate in.
But this Deep State is even worse than Trump supporters think.
New National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is actively working to keep the Deep State in place.
Instead of acting on Trump’s orders to drain the swamp, McMaster has kept dozens of Obama holdovers in place on the National Security Council.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Several Obama holdovers who led initiatives at odds with President Donald Trump’s foreign policy remain on the staff of National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
About 40 of the National Security Council’s (NSC) 250 officials — nearly one in six — are Obama administration holdovers, according to TheDCNF’s analysis. The holdovers include NSC directors for Korea, China, Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, Eastern Europe, Israel-Palestine, South America, North Africa and sub-Sahara Africa. Holdovers also advise on weapons of mass destruction, counterterrorism, non-proliferation, arms control, defense policy, immigration, and homeland preparedness.
It’s been common practice in previous administrations to retain holdovers from an outgoing administration, and nearly all are on loan from other federal agencies. But current and former administration officials tell TheDCNF they are concerned that so many Obama era holdovers are still working at NSC eight months into the Trump administration.
“The problem is the allegiance they have to their former administration and their position and stances on national security,” said Col. James Waurishuk (Ret.), a 30-year veteran senior intelligence official and a former NSC official. “It’s crazy when they represent pretty much 180 degrees of what Trump is trying to do.”
Some blame McMaster for the holdovers. “He has protected and coddled them,” alleged one former NSC staffer who requested anonymity.”
McMaster has become a figure of great controversy in the Trump administration.
He is an establishment minded globalist trying to push Trump away from the America First message that won him the election.
McMaster fought Trump on pulling out of Obama’s Paris global warming agreement.
And he has fought for a surge of troops in Afghanistan despite Trump’s message that America should rebuild at home instead of nation building abroad.
With McMaster in charge of the National Security Council, Obama’s Deep State has a mole within the White House.
And the situation is even more dire than anyone knew.
Trump is not only being undermined by Obama’s Deep State, he has enemies within his own White House.
Trump supporters have made #fireMcMaster a trending hash tag on Twitter.
Draining the swamp starts with eliminating Obama’s Deep State operatives on the NSC.
But it also includes firing H.R. McMaster.
