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 FBI Lawyer Kevin Clinesmith Gets Probation for FISA Warrant Fraud, Russia-gate Probe Ends with Nobody in Jail
The deep state wins again.
Former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith has been sentenced to 12 months of probation and 400 hours of community service after pleading guilty to tampering with an email that was used to get a FISA secret court warrant to spy on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Clinesmith pleaded guilty in August to “one count of making a false statement within both the jurisdiction of the executive branch and judicial branch of the U.S. government, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years and a fine of up to $250,000.” The courts let him off without the prison time.
No more indictments are expected as the Biden regime will shutter the investigation into Russia-gate. U.S. Attorney John Durham slow rolled the investigation at the behest of Attorney General Bill Barr to protect the deep state from any real culpability.
The reality is starting to set in for conservatives that they have been duped, and there will be no accountability for the illegal spying operation put into place against President Trump by holdovers from the Obama/Biden regime.
“If you look at the wrongdoing, the abuse of power that has taken place, people will feel very unsatisfied if only Clinesmith is charged,” said Curt Levey, who is president of the Committee for Justice.
“There are certainly people who should be held accountable and go to jail,” he added.
While some still hold out hope for Durham to charge Russia-gate conspirators, it has been obvious that his investigation was a sham for quite some time.
Big League Politics reported last year on how it was obvious that Durham and Barr were stalling in the lead-up to the presidential election, running out the clock in a deliberate fashion while duping Trump’s supporters:
Trump supporters are waiting with baited breath for U.S. Attorney John Durham to come out with his explosive findings in regards to his investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion probe against President Trump.
According to Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton, Trump supporters are getting taken for a ride. Fitton said during a recent appearance on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that Barr and Durham are making no progress on investigating what very well may be the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. history.
“You know, my concern is it’s been, what, sixteen-plus months since Durham was appointed and only now is he questioning Mr. Brennan,” Fitton said.
Fitton said that he is inclined to believe disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan when he says that he is not a person of interest in Durham’s investigation.
“I don’t see grand juries operating. I don’t see a bunch of witnesses coming in. I don’t see lawyers complaining about their clients being brought in before Durham,” Fitton said.
He said that the Mueller investigation was run much more thoroughly than Durham’s so-called investigation, the goal of which appears to be protecting the deep state.
“You know when the government is being pressure on witnesses and subjects and that is not evident here,” Fitton said, adding that it is his opinion that Durham is “not doing the work” needed to bring deep state criminals to justice.
Fitton did not object to Dobbs’ characterization that he is calling the Durham a “sham.”
“I’ll have to tell you. I’m a little concerned that the FBI is no longer an investigative agency because if this is the way they operate, it’s going to take them decades to deal with anything of real complexity,” Dobbs said.
“Well, [FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith] wasn’t arrested but they managed to arrest Stephen Bannon. The comparison and contrasting to me is just remarkable,” Fitton responded.
The levels of corruption are reaching Biblical levels in America, and traitors feel emboldened to commit intolerable acts against the American people in broad daylight. This is globalism. This is the Orwellian nightmare, and the situation will be worsening drastically under President-imposed Biden.
