Mark Sidney| OPINION| Finally, over 3 years since he was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald Trump is consolidating the bloated National Security Counsel.
Donald Trump was elected by people like you and I who desperately want to see the corruption in Washington DC exposed and those who have sold us out, held accountable.
This was the fundamental promise of the Trump campaign, to ‘Drain the Swamp‘.
Now, Trump has done a lot of good things and every day I am thankful that HRC is not in power and continuing to sell our nation and it's secrets to the highest bidder, however, when it comes to ‘Draining the Swamp', I think most of us wish that we would have seen more action by now.
I understand that building cases like this takes time, but ffs, it's been 3 years now, and there have been what, 5 coup attempts to date?
It is clear that the DS will not stop until Trump is dead or in prison. There is only one solution when you face an enemy who is hell bent on your destruction: destroy them first, ideally with overwhelming force.
It seems that the Trump admin may finally be moving to that end.
The Washington Examiner featured an opinion piece today which stated:
‘President Trump is making good on his promises to “drain the swamp” and cut Obama-era holdovers from his staffs, especially the critical and recently controversial National Security Council.
Officials confirmed that Trump and national security adviser Robert O’Brien have cut 70 positions inherited from former President Barack Obama, who had fattened the staff to 200.
Many were loaners from other agencies and have been sent back. Others left government work.
The NSC, which is the president’s personal staff, was rocked when a “whistleblower” leveled charges that led to Trump’s impeachment.'
….was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering to the chain of command and leaking information. In other words, “OUT”.

Last week, one key official who testified against Trump at a House hearing on the Ukraine affair that led to impeachment was sent packing. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was returned to the Pentagon. His twin brother, Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, was also given the boot. Trump had expressed displeasure that Alexander Vindman had testified against him when the Ukraine specialist said he did not like the phone conversation between the president and a newly elected president of Ukraine.'
Hopefully this will help seal some of the leaks and help to ensure that they people in Trump's inner circle are working towards his policy aims, not trying to throw him under the bus.
There have been rumors that indictments are coming this week, but we have all heard that story over and over again for the last 3 years. All we can do is keep exposing the bad actors in Washington and pray that there are still a few good men and women in the DOJ … but I'm not holding my breath.
