TRUMP ADVISERS CALL FOR A ‘PURGE’ OF OBAMA APPOINTEES
Earlier this week, in an appearance on Fox News, Trump confirmed his beliefs that Obama is behind the litany of leaks that have plagued his administration over the past couple of months.
And while the source of the leaks may be easy to deduce, the appropriate response is not so easy to implement. That said, there is a growing chorus of advisers to the President who are urging him to purge the government of former Obama political appointees and quickly install more people who are loyal to him.
Newt Gingrich is among those calling for such a purge…per Politico:
Of course, in reality, Trump’s problems go much deeper than just the remaining Obama appointees as government agencies around Washington D.C. are staffed with 1,000s of career civil servants, many of whom loath President Trump’s administration and its agenda.
The swamp seems to be much deeper than anyone could have predicted.
