Bannon Loses National Security Council Role in Trump Shakeup

…Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, was elevated to the National Security Council’s principals committee at the beginning of Trump’s presidency. The move drew criticism from some members of Congress and Washington’s foreign policy establishment.

A White House official said that Bannon was placed on the committee in part to monitor Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and never attended a meeting. He’s no longer needed with McMaster in charge of the council, the official said.

Twitter is going nutz of course…

    The Bureaucracy and the DC Elites at work.

        Frankly, i rely on most of your judgment for years and it was good enough for me.

    I hope Trump can stay ahead of the elites in the swamp. I am unsure how this unfolds but Trump seems to have been very astute to date.

    I recall McMaster called islam the religion of peace. I do hope Trump knows better.

    LOL this is a big nothing. It was just a re-org. Bannon was only there to keep an eye on Flynn anyway and never attended a meeting.

    First there was the sabotage of Flynn and now this. Unless Trump manages to get the right people in the right positions, little if anything will change; the Establishment, both GOP and Democrats, will continue running the show.
