Bigger than Vindman: Trump scrubs 70 Obama holdovers from NSC

by Paul Bedard

| February 10, 2020 08:14 AM


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.

That's a start. Try a 10% spending & staff reduction YoY. That is just as good as cutting regulation and taxes. Rumor is they are going to defang the Dept. of Education after the election. Would make for a nice parting gift from Betsy D. who will do her patriotic duty.

Good. Cut all these departments in half, then start getting rid of complete departments including Education, HHS, HUD, Interior, and more.
Nothing happens till the IRS goes...

Once the IRS is gone those other cuts will be easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Trump Withdraws Treasury Nomination Of Former US Attorney Jessie Liu - Who Oversaw Flynn, Stone Cases


President Trump withdrew the nomination of former US attorney for DC, Jessie Liu to the #3 spot at the Treasury - which she quit her job last month in anticipation of.





Liu oversaw several politically charged prosecutions, including Trump associates Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and others, according to Axios, following a scoop by OAN's Jack Posobiec.

The move comes hours after four prosecutors in the Roger Stone case tendered their resignations because the DOJ rejected their absurdly punitive sentencing recommendations in Stone's case.


Liu was confirmed in September 2017 to oversee the DC US attorney's office, and was expected to stay through her nomination. Instead, she was unexpectedly informed last month that she would be replaced by Attorney General Bill Barr's close adviser, Timothy Shea, per Axios - which adds that her withdrawn nomination to the Treasury Department's undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes was the "president's call," according to a former administration official familiar with the situation.


On top of that, Liu came under fire last week for declining to press charges against two U.S. Park Police officers who fatally shot a harmless and unarmed driver four times in the head.

Outlet The Conservative Treehouse has covered Liu extensively. Read more about her here.


In short - the swamp just got a little lower.

Can you imagine a former federal worker looking for a job in the private sector? Horrible work ethic, bloated sense of entitled benefits needed, etc. I certainly wouldn't want one of those zombies when hiring someone.
