After John Bolton’s disappearance, Elliott Abrams is now done for. Goodbye to the last two neocons in play in regard to potential appointments.
Now the drama starts with the actual cabinet appointees as Michael Flynn, NSC chief, resigns. Goodbye to bad rubbish. Keith Kellogg takes over the NSC as ‘acting head’: at least he doesn’t foam at the mouth.
Trump might have stuck with Flynn as the revelations over his contacts with the Russian Embassy came out, if it hadn’t been for Trump’s loss of face over the ‘Muslim ban’.
Who comes out of all of this a hero – or heroine? Sally Yates: who warned the White House about the illegality of the Muslim ban and about Michael Flynn. Where is she? Fired of course.
