Ask yourself this: are they celebrating or are they afraid?
Some might even say that
a storm is coming, given the amount of fears that have begun to swirl:
The firing of Defense
Secretary Mark Esper kicked off a rapid-fire series of high-level departures at
the Pentagon on Tuesday, setting off alarms on Capitol Hill that the White
House was installing loyalists to carry out President Donald Trump’s wishes
during an already tense transition.
In quick succession, top officials overseeing policy,
intelligence and the defense secretary’s staff all had resigned by the end of
the day Tuesday, replaced by political operatives who are fiercely loyal to
Trump and have trafficked in “deep state” conspiracy theories.
Fears continue to swirl over what these newly installed leaders
will do as Trump fights the results of last week’s election, and after he has
shown he is willing to use troops to solve political problems.
In fact, some have
already said it:
is getting crazy right? It's out of a lot of people's control. And so the
reason they called me in is to try to harness that storm, try to reel it back
in before it gets really crazy... because we have senators involved. We have
the Department of Justice involved..."
