Draining the Swamp has begun
CBS is reporting that Tillerson is handing out pink slips like candy, specifically to the State Department’s “7th floor”:
State Dept. Carries out layoffs under Rex Tillerson
Washington, D.C. — While Rex Tillerson is on his first overseas trip as Secretary of State, his aides laid off staff at the state Department on Thursday.
Much of the seventh-Floor swamp staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed! Draining the Swamp!
Why is this significant? Because the “7th floor” is known as the home to powerful, high-ranking State Department officials who did everything in their power to shield Hillary Clinton from justice. As the NY Post reported last October:
Draining the Swamp
The FBI also released the summary of an interview that revealed a cabal at State that oversaw the email release — a “powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or as ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss . . . everything CLINTON related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries.”
Imagine officials high in the George W. Bush administration calling themselves “the Shadow Government” as they oversaw a supposedly nonpartisan release of documents that could sink the White House hopes of its former boss.
You can bet this is part of Trump’s counter-offensive, now that he realizes how many Beltway snakes are out to get him.
The great Swamp draining begins.
