Trumpist Whose Job Was Saved by Trump Is Fired by McMaster

At IndependentSentinel

Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council, has been fired. He is the third Flynn/Trump loyalist fired in a week, following the dismissal of Rich Higgins and Col. Harvey.

The White House confirmed in a statement that Cohen-Watnick has left the NSC:

General McMaster appreciates the good work accomplished in the NSC’s Intelligence directorate under Ezra Cohen’s leadership. He has determined that, at this time, a different set of experiences is best-suited to carrying that work forward. General McMaster is confident that Ezra will make many further significant contributions to national security in another position in the administration.

Cohen-Watnick, 31, is one of General Flynn’s appointees who are being systematically wiped out, Politico reports. 

Fired on the second attempt

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster tried to fire Cohen-Watnick before but President Trump, Steve Bannon, and Jared Kushner stepped in and stopped it. Here it is a short time later, and he’s gone.

Cohen-Watnick is another of the alleged Iran hawks who wanted a different approach to countering Iran’s growing hegemony and.... he wanted to pull back the deep state or whatever you want to call the leakers/establishment who are making it impossible for the President to function.
