Turns out, Pres.Trump and Rex Tillerson did NOT prompt a mass exodus of pouting, protesting State Department officials.
Fact is, Trump shoved ’em down the ol’ swamp hole when he told them to leave!
Hard to know what the bigger story is here. Is it that once again the Fakestream Media has been busted? Or that CNN is outing them and reporting the truth?
My head is spinning. .
Actually going to link to CNN…They report,
Two senior administration officials said Thursday that the Trump administration told four top State Department management officials that their services were no longer needed as part of an effort to “clean house” at Foggy Bottom.
Patrick Kennedy, who served for nine years as the undersecretary for management, Assistant Secretaries for Administration and Consular Affairs Joyce Anne Barre and Michele Bond, and Ambassador Gentry Smith, Director of the Office for Foreign Missions, were sent letters by the White House that their service was no longer required, the sources told CNN.
All four, career officers serving in positions appointed by the President, submitted letters of resignation per tradition at the beginning of a new administration. The letters from the White House said that their resignations were accepted and they were thanked for their service.
The White House usually asks career officials in such positions to stay on for a few months until their successors are confirmed.
Any implication that these four people quit is wrong, one senior State Department official said. These people are loyal to the secretary, the President and to the State Department. There is just not any attempt here to dis the President. People are not quitting and running away in disgust. This is the White House cleaning house.
Wow! Not sure if CNN is trying to win back some street cred or just hold onto their press pass, but this is downright refreshing!
Isn’t it great? President Trump is draining the swamp!
