Pentagon Being Cleansed of All Obama Appointees! SWAMP DRAIN Commencing!


There are a lot of true patriots at the Pentagon, DOJ, CIA and other agencies, but there are also a lot of Obama holdovers.

And some of them are rotten eggs, as we learned with these leaks.

But our President Trump is nothing if not very smart and calculating.  He knows he needs to continue cleaning house.  And he will do it.

Herre are more details from the Washington Times:

The Pentagon has been stripped of almost all of its political appointees from the Obama administration, but an uncertain Senate future awaits the candidates whom President Trump will nominate to remake the armed forces in his image.

Of Mr. Obama’s 163 political appointees at election time, who included Senate-confirmed service secretaries, undersecretaries and assistant secretaries, only 16 remain at the Defense Department, according to a Pentagon statement to The Washington Times.

The exodus might be considered normal in the transfer of power: Political appointees are required to turn in their resignations in December.

But Washington’s bitter political climate is far different today from the last transfer of power in 2009. Senate Democrats are resisting Mr. Trump and his agenda via the confirmation process. There is a chance that some of the Defense Department’s 53 appointed positions requiring Senate confirmation will be vacant for a long time.

The vacancies give Mr. Trump an opportunity to select men and women who will provide the leadership, policies and catalyst for his two main priorities: rebuilding the military and defeating the Islamic State terrorist group.
