Robert O’Brien: More Cuts Coming for National Security Council Staff
By Zachary Stieber
February 12, 2020 Updated: February 12, 2020


More cuts are coming soon at the White House National Security Council, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said, as part of an effort to make the council streamlined and efficient and to make sure the council staffers are dedicated to carrying out policies chosen by President Donald Trump.

O’Brien, 53, said at a Feb. 11 Atlantic Council talk that officials were bringing the council “back to a manageable size.” The “right-sizing” of the council, which is almost complete, would take the total number of staffers from 175 to 110 by the end of February, he said. The downsizing would target “the bloat and inefficiency that can sometimes creep in.” Some cuts would be complete by the end of the week.

The new cuts come after the removal last week of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, 44, and Vindman’s brother, Yevgeny Vindman, from the council. Alexander Vindman, who was detailed from the Department of Defense, testified during the impeachment inquiry against Trump; his brother was a lawyer for the council who was also detailed from the army.

I wonder if anyone advised Trump to get rid of most of these people when he first took office.

It's obvious that govt. employees think they set policy not the officials we elect. Pubs should learn clean house when taking over don't trust these people.

Perhaps they ought to eliminate it ENTIRELY.
Certainly cut it down to, say, 25 members, tops.

We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.
