EXCLUSIVE: 'Everything The President Wants To Do, McMaster Opposes,' Former NSC Official Says
"General McMaster and I are working very well together".
"I hereby waive the requirement that you must have a "need-to-know" to access any classified information contained in items you 'originated, reviewed, signed or received while serving, ' as National Security Adviser", the letter said. "Meanwhile, blogger Mike Cernovich has been tweeting links to a website called McMasterLeaks, which contains a single blog post with multiple examples of how McMaster is undermining Trump". Trump wants to deal with the China issue - McMaster doesn't.
In addition to the firings of people seen as particularly pro-Trump, many on the right also seized on a decision to extend a security clearance for Susan Rice, President Barack Obama's final national security adviser.
But for now, at least, the campaign has not been able to convince Trump that he should get rid of McMaster, nor has it convinced Kushner, who was a staunch ally of the latest official McMaster pushed out of the NSC: senior director for intelligence Ezra Cohen-Watnick.
Plus is National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster thwarting President Trump's foreign policy? The three-star general addressed Trump's questions about why the USA isn't "winning" in Afghanistan, but didn't want to discuss why we're still there after 16 years.
A senior administration official defended the move to CNN, and said the security clearance had been extended to all former security advisers, so they could discuss with the administration national security issues that occurred under their tenure. Rice has been accused by the president, who has cited no evidence, of involvement in attempts to unmask Trump officials wiretapped by US intelligence agencies during last year's election. But multiple officials told BuzzFeed News that the main factors were differences between McMaster and Harvey on how the Middle East directorate should be managed as well as some heated discussions about Iran's presence in Syria during policy coordinating meetings.
Police arrest Northwestern professor suspected in slaying Warren has been suspended from his post as the senior treasury assistant at Somerville College, Britain's Oxford Mail reports . United Kingdom police have confirmed Mr Warren was reported missing on July 25 having left the United Kingdom the day before.
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.
The firing of the NSC's director for strategy planning, Richard Higgins, on July 21, meanwhile, was linked to a conspiratorial memo he'd sent about radical Islam rather than his ties to Bannon or NSC aide Sebastian Gorka, an NSC aide said.
Waltz said there have always been factions in the Republican Party, with those who hold isolationist views and those who want to lead overseas, and that's what this "tension" appears to be centered on.
McMaster does, however, appear to have the support of new chief of staff and fellow general John Kelly. McMaster, meanwhile, is apparently already on thin ice with the more nationalist wing of the White House.
Trump addressed the attacks against McMaster in a statement on Friday.
