The permanent national security
bureaucracy – whom many call the Deep State – is in big trouble at the White
A new sheriff is in town, and his
name is John Bolton. Bolton, named the new national security adviser
by Donald Trump, is ready to fire dozens of White House staffers when he
takes the job next month.
Among those who will
get the boot will be Obama administration holdovers and anyone who isn't loyal
to President Trump, sources told Foreign Policy.
"Bolton can and
will clean house," one former White House official was quoted as saying.
On Thursday, Trump
announced that Bolton would replace H.R. McMaster as head of the National
Security Council – a move that would be effective on April 9.
Bolton, a former U.S.
ambassador to the United Nations under former President George W. Bush, hinted
in follow-up interviews Thursday on Fox News and Fox Business that he would be
a strong force to solve the White House's lingering issue with leaks,
particularly those of a national security nature.
"It's not for them
to put in jeopardy the other 300 plus million American citizens just because
they think their morality is better than everybody else's," Bolton said of the leakers on Fox Business.
Trump may be having trouble draining
the swamp on Capitol Hill, but he's making progress on the diplomatic and
national security fronts. State Department employees have been
whining for months about Trump not naming new personnel. Dire
warnings about how badly U.S. diplomatic efforts will suffer because there
aren't enough bureaucrats to push the paper appear not to be materializing.
So now it's the turn of the
NSC. It really is outrageous that Obama holdovers have access to
information that, when leaked selectively, can make their boss look bad. But
that's the nature of the NSC, as the appointed staffers rely heavily on others
to be kept up to date on what's happening in the world.
If Bolton follows through, I fully
expect most of those positions to go unfilled. And that's as good as
anything when you're trying to drain the swamp.
