White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was removed from the National Security Council today.
The deck chairs are being moved around. Incoming Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster is taking the spot for National Security Advisor and he wants all traces of his predecessor removed from the area.
Bannon, formerly the president of the extremist website Breitbart was chosen by fuhrer Donald J. Trump to take the helm as one of his trusted political strategists. Many Democrats and even some Republicans believed that Bannon's role would greatly damage the reputation of those in the intelligence community. Many claimed that he would polarize information and risk politicizing foreign policy.
McMaster made it clear that Michael Flynn's short stint will be a distant memory. Flynn was the NSA chief for a mere two weeks. A bombshell story released showed that Flynn was in contact with Russians during then President Barack Obama's condemnation.
Obama imposed sanctions on the Russian Federation after the feds determined they meddled in the affairs. Trump denies Russian involvement and believes this is a witch hunt created by bitter voters.
Trump hasn't sacked Bannon yet. But the demotion is sign that the fuhrer is trying to regroup.
Bannon was famous for giving Milo Yiannopoulos a platform. His former website Breitbart News is facing an advertising boycott. The website is closely associated with White extremism and kookspiracy stories.
Extremists believe that Reince Priebus is sabotaging Trump. They are calling for him to be removed from the White House council.
