'Everything The President Wants To Do, McMaster Opposes,' Former NSC Official Says

Reports suggest that Mc Master wants to axe anyone involved with a controversial memo claiming that the “deep state” is engaged in a Maoist-style insurgency against the Trump administration

"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". And even that, it works out, wasn't sufficient for McMaster.

Mattis, McMaster and other top aides are putting together answers to Trump's questions in a way to try to get him to approve the strategy, the officials said.

Fox News is told by National Security Council sources, however, that the letter was a pro forma document similar to those sent to every living former national security adviser and former president - and that he was required to send it.

Trump also says McMaster "is a good man and very pro-Israel".

"At the time, I and other reporters were led to believe that this was the decision of rogue anti-Israel officers at the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem".

Some on the right have also gone after McMaster this week following the exit of Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence, from the National Security Council (NSC).

As far as the anti-McMaster effort's chances, there had been reports that Trump was thinking about pulling McMaster from the NSC to put him in charge of the war in Afghanistan, but on Friday night, in a rare, clearly concerted effort for this White House, both the president and Kushner released statements expressing their support for McMaster. Intelligence and law enforcement officials, along with Democratic and Republican lawmakers, responded by saying there was no evidence to show that Obama had wiretapped Trump.

There's now open speculation as to whether Steve Bannon could be the next Trump staffer to be ousted.

Cohen-Watnick's removal comes after the revelation by The Atlantic on Wednesday of the dismissal of Rich Higgins, another Iran hawk who was the NSC's director of strategic planning. Back in reality, Higgins penned and circulated a memo that accused "globalists" and other elements of the "deep state" of aligning with "Islamists" to destroy the Trump administration. 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.

"Everything the president wants to do, McMaster opposes". Harvey may assume another role in the administration.

McMaster added that he would "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".
