Bannon Removed From National Security Council Role in Shakeup

Post by Original Quill on Wed Apr 05, 2017 5:04 pm

Bloomberg News wrote:minority-President Trump reorganized his National Security Council on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, and downgrading the role of his Homeland Security Adviser, Tom Bossert, according to a person familiar with the decision and a regulatory filing.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster was given responsibility for setting the agenda for meetings of the NSC or the Homeland Security Council, and was authorized to delegate that authority to Bossert, at his discretion, according to the filing.

Under the move, the national intelligence director, Dan Coats, and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, are again "regular attendees" of the NSC’s principals committee.

Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, was elevated to the National Security Council’s principals committee at the beginning of Trump’s presidency. The move drew criticism from some members of Congress and Washington’s foreign policy establishment.

It appears the high-jinx of inventing the "wire-tapping" story for Congressman Nunes to ferry from and back to the White House, has backfired.  We now know the story was invented as a cover-up by Bannon and associates, using minor stories cobbled together by Bannon and associates, to make Trump's cocaine-inspired myth of March 4th, about Obama wiretapping him, seem legitimate.

Apparently use of classified information for political advertising purposes is a 'no-no'. Evil or Very Mad  Gotta be national security, boys.

Perhaps he was just too left wing for Trump. But so is Ghengis Khan.

Good point Andy. There's an element of the outcast in Bannon that doesn't fit in with the gold layer & lamé of Trump Towers.

It's like...what's that smell? Doesn't he bathe?
