President Donald Trump is getting rid of the dead weight within the Washington D.C. swamp now that his impeachment trial has come to an end.
In addition to the firing of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman last week, Trump has dismissed 70 employees from the National Security Council (NSC), many of whom have ties to former President Barack Obama.
This could be the first of many cuts coming within the NSC. National security adviser Robert O’Brien has said that the intention is to get the NSC down to roughly 100 employees, far less than the 700 bureaucrats that Obama employed while he was vastly expanding power in Washington D.C.
“This month, we will complete the right-sizing goal Ambassador O’Brien outlined in October, and in fact, may exceed that target by drawing down even more positions,” John Ullyot, the NSC’s senior director for strategic communications, said to the Washington Examiner.
President Trump blasted Vindman on his Twitter account after the man was fired from his role as U.S. Ambassador to the European Union last week:
….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”.

Democrats are fighting mad that President Trump is exerting more control over his own administration in the aftermath of their failed impeachment coup.
“Those who suggested President Trump’s behavior would improve following his impeachment have been proven wrong. I sincerely hope that all members of Congress condemn this latest reprehensible, yet sadly predictable conduct by President Trump,” Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said.
“Lt. Col. Vindman honored his oath and did his duty when he came forward about President Trump’s abuse of power. He deserves the thanks and respect of the American people. But we know that this president believes the only loyalty that matters is loyalty to him personally,” said Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), who is the chair of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
“This is shameful, of course. But this is also what we should now expect from an impeached president whose party has decided he is above the law and accountable to no one. Any senator who voted to keep Trump in office thinking he has learned his lesson must answer for this and for whatever parade of abuses we see in the future,” he added.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said: “This action is not a sign of strength. It only shows President Trump’s weakness.”
“It’s clear Trump is sending a signal to anyone who dares to come forward with the truth. Lt. Col. Vindman showed devotion to duty, something this lawless president knows nothing about,” tweeted Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)
After years of being marred with phony investigations regarding Russia and the Ukraine, President Trump has finally been liberated to drain the swamp. Many more heads will be rolling in the upcoming months, as career Washington D.C. bureaucrats must be shaking in their boots.

Former U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher CONFIRMS That He Floated Possible Presidential Pardon to Julian Assange
Trump’s alleged willingness to pardon Assange shows that he is still fighting the deep state.
Yesterday, an attorney for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in court that his client was offered a presidential pardon in exchange for Russia testimony. Former Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has now essentially confirmed those allegations.
“I spoke to Julian Assange and told him if he would provide evidence about who gave WikiLeaks the emails, I would petition the president to give him a pardon,” Rohrabacher said to Yahoo News. “He knew I could get to the president.”
Rohrabacher had a three-hour meeting with Assange in August 2017 while he was holed up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in Britain. Rohrabacher was hoping to gather proof that Seth Rich, a former DNC staffer murdered in 2016 who many now put on the Clinton kill count, or another individual leaked the information to WikiLeaks. The deep state claims the Russians were behind it.
He made it clear that he only requested “truthful” information from Assange, and in no way meant to coerce him to produce a “lie.” Rohrabacher talked to former White House chief of staff John Kelly after the fact about the meeting, whom he said was “courteous” but ultimately brushed him off.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who worked for the First Lady when this took place, is vehemently denying the allegations.
“The President barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman,” she said in a statement. “He’s never spoken to him on this subject or almost any subject. It is a complete fabrication and a total lie. This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC.”
Right now, Assange is facing 18 felony charges, including 17 under the Espionage Act, for allegedly helping former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning hack information exposing deep state crimes and other illicit activities in 2010.
“Chelsea Manning’s plea and mitigation to the military commission has key passages which we will be relying on so we would seek to extract that and key press reports so the court has key materials,” said Assange’s attorney Edward Fitzgerald, who is arguing that Britain should not extradite his client back to the United States, during a preliminary court appearance this week.
“What we say is it is an abuse to seek extradition for a political offense so that is really part of the abuse argument,” he added.
Assange has repeatedly said on the record that Russia did not give him the information that his organization leaked from the DNC.
“Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false. We can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange said in Nov. 2016 in an interview with an Australian broadcaster.
“Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President,” Assange told Sean Hannity during a Fox News interview, explaining the genesis of the Russia lie.
“We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” Assange told Hannity.
A pardon of Assange would be a devastating blow to the deep state, which has been battling to overthrow President Trump since his election.
