Trump named former UN Ambassador John Bolton as his new national security adviser this week. Bolton has serious policy chops and is known for a no -nonsense approach. People are already saying he is going to go after leakers in the White House with a vengeance. It’s something that needs to happen.
The Blaze reports:
John Bolton expected to clean house: FIRE ‘dozens’ of WH officials for leaking info to media
Newly appointed national security adviser John Bolton is expected to “clean house” at the National Security Council in the coming weeks, Foreign Policy reported.
What is he planning?
According to FP, holdovers from former President Barack Obama’s administration, those disloyal to President Donald Trump and anyone known to leak information to the media will be getting the boot. Bolton may even fire those loyal to former national security adviser H.R. McMaster, sources said.
“Bolton can and will clean house,” an anonymous White House official told FP.
Another added: “Everyone who was there during Obama years should start packing their sh*t.”
Leaks have been a massive problem for the Trump administration, and many see Bolton’s appointment as a solution to the problem. Indeed, Bolton explained on Fox News Thursday that he would solve the problem — at least at the NSC.
The New York Times even reported that Trump specifically hired Bolton because he thought the former ambassador to the United Nations could single-handedly fix the issue.
Someone needs to do it. Hopefully, Bolton can get the job done.
