Dina Habib Powell will be leaving the White House at some point in the New Year as President Trump looks to make a staff shakeup at the one-year point.
The Jared Kushner and Ivanka associate was known for her close working relationship with Gary Cohn, the establishment Goldman Sachs veteran whose presence as a White House adviser rankled Trump loyalists like Steve Bannon.
The departure of Powell might spell trouble for her pal Cohn, whose career in the White House has been propped up by support (and threats) from major globalist financial institutions on Wall Street. Big League Politics has reported on Cohn’s daughter’s deleted anti-Trump tweets.
Powell was a foreign policy adviser and Bush administration alum who, according to The New York Times, enjoyed influence outside merely the foreign policy realm and was even discussed as a possible chief of staff. The Bannon foe’s friends cited her work commute and family issues for her departure, which is Washington-Speak indicating that she is being forced out.
Trump loyalists can only hope that a wave of establishment departures will be on the horizon, opening up new advisory slots for nationalists in tune with the themes of President Trump’s campaign and political philosophy.

Locked and Loaded: Pentagon Grants Soldiers in DC Power to use Lethal Force
The National Guard have been authorized to use lethal force, if needed.
Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy has authorized the twenty thousand National Guard members providing security around the U.S. Capitol to carry lethal weapons as Washington, D.C., braces for Inauguration Day.
“On January 12, 2021, National Guardsmen were given authorization to be armed in support of the U.S. Capitol Police to protect the U.S. Capitol and individual members of Congress and their staff,” according to a statement from the D.C. National Guard, which is commanding Guard forces in the city, including units deployed from six other states, to provide security for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week,” the DC National Guard revealed in a statement “This was requested by federal authorities and authorized by the Secretary of the Army.”
The National Guard Bureau declined to specify what weapons troops would carry.
“National Guard members are postured to meet the requirements of the supported civil authorities, up to and including protective equipment and being armed if necessary,” said the statement. “The public’s safety is our top priority.”
Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson, chief of the National Guard Bureau, told media members on Monday that a force of up to 15,000 will deploy to D.C. with all their issued equipment, including their individual weapons. So if the need arises, “they are close by and they are readily accessible.”
The Pentagon initially authorized up to six thousand two hundred Guard members from Maryland, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania to deploy to D.C. on federal status to maintain security through Inauguration Day.
The history of National Guard members being a part of the presidential inauguration dates back to the first inauguration of President George Washington in 1789.
