As for rumors that Trump is considering shifting CIA Director Mike Pompeo to national security adviser and sending McMaster to command US forces in Afghanistan, Waltz said McMaster would do a great job, but he wants to see him stay in his current position.
"Susan Rice? Omg", in response to a report that McMaster renewed the security clearance for former National Security Advisor Susan Rice in April.
President Donald Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, has reportedly concluded that his predecessor, Susan Rice, did nothing wrong when she tried to learn the identities of officials on Trump's transition team who were mentioned in United States intelligence reports a year ago. "He is a good man and very pro-Israel", Trump saidin a statement Friday night.
James Carafano, a former Trump transition team official and vice president of the conservative Heritage Foundation, decried as counterproductive the recent spate of "blood-in-the-water" rumors. "Trump wants to get us out of Afghanistan - McMaster wants to go in".
Politicoreported on Tuesday that McMaster also managed to fire top White House intelligence aide Ezra Cohen-Watnick from the NSC, who was previously described by The Atlantic as essentially un-fireable. Two sources informed The Weekly Standard that Harvey was viewed as being too close with White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, which was a motivating factor in the purge.
McMaster, it should be noted, was the Trump administration's most senior representative and speaker earlier this year at the Israeli embassy's annual Independence Day event. "I am grateful for the work he continues to do serving our country", Trump said in a statement. But Cohen-Watnick appealed to Trump's top advisers, Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, who got Trump to intervene to save his job.
His dismissal follows other recent changes at the NSC. The Atlantic article further noted that Rich Higgins, senior director for strategic planning, had been fired in late July after writing a memo on globalists and Islamist collaborating to subvert Trump's policy agenda. The president's defense of his national security adviser came amid anger over the firings of three officials that turned McMaster into "Public Enemy No. 1 of the pro-Trump online brigades".
Nearly one month after Lake broke that story, McMaster appears to have sent a letter to Rice informing her that she could maintain her security clearance, according to the conservative news outlet Circa, which obtained a copy of the letter. Alt-right journalist Mike Cernovich has shared links to a site called McMaster Leaks on Twitter, devoted to attacks on the general.
