Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council who provided information to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) about "unmasking" during the Barack Obama administration, was ousted today. Then again, no one who isn't related to the president is ever safe in this White House, and it seems clear that Trump remains antsy about McMaster, but that, for now at least, he is more fond of McMaster than he is of feeling forced to fire him.
McMaster is now involved in a power struggle within the Trump administration, facing off against the far-right wing headed by senior adviser Steve Bannon, who is attempting to bring about McMaster's resignation.
Sources say the Trump staffers fired by McMaster had repeatedly crossed their boss on issues such as U.S involvement in Syria and Afghanistan, President Obama's Iran deal, the Paris Climate Accord and the threat of radical Islam.
It said McMaster "has determined that, at this time, a different set of experiences is best-suited to carrying that work forward". As far as the anti-McMaster effort's chances, there had been reports that Trump was thinking about pulling McMaster from the NSC to put him in charge of the war in Afghanistan, but on Friday night, in a rare, clearly concerted effort for this White House, both the president and Kushner released statements expressing their support for McMaster.
Trump made the wiretapping claim, without citing evidence, on Twitter in February.
In classified briefings, Trump would frequently flit between subjects. Higgins was sacked for circulating a memo in which he alleged that there was a "Maoist" insurgency within and without the government of "globalists and Islamists".
Last Thursday, Derek Harvey, senior director for the Middle East, was kicked off the NSC after complaints directly from Secretary of Defense James Mattis, a McMaster ally. McMaster tapped Michael Bell, a retired army colonel who has a conventional career portfolio, to replace Harvey.
As for rumors that Trump is considering shifting CIA Director Mike Pompeo to national security adviser and sending McMaster to command USA forces in Afghanistan, Waltz said McMaster would do a great job, but he wants to see him stay in his current position.
Notably, however, all three differ sharply from the relatively moderate Iran policy espoused by McMaster.
"Everything the president wants to do, McMaster opposes".
McMaster, it should be noted, was the Trump administration's most senior representative and speaker earlier this year at the Israeli embassy's annual Independence Day event.
