If there’s one thing Trump is exceptional at it’s pushing the Democrats buttons.
And he’s playing Pelosi right now like piano.
He just snuck a major blow against Democrats by appointing a pro-Trump lawyer to the NSA with only 72-hours left in office!
WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency is moving forward with hiring a Trump administration loyalist, the agency said on Sunday, after the acting defense secretary ordered he be made the spy agency’s top lawyer.
Christopher C. Miller, the acting defense secretary, gave Gen. Paul M. Nakasone, the spy agency’s director, until 6 p.m. on Saturday to install Michael Ellis as its general counsel.
The deadline came and went with the National Security Agency remaining silent. But the agency said in a statement on Sunday that “Mr. Ellis accepted his final job offer yesterday afternoon. N.S.A. is moving forward with his employment.” He has not been formally sworn in, and it is not clear when that would happen.
Pelosi is absolutely livid over this appointment and has actually sent a letter to Acting Department of Defense Secretary Christopher C. Miller demanding Ellis be removed ASAP.
Washington D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent a letter late yesterday to Acting Department of Defense Secretary Christopher C. Miller demanding an immediate halt to the improper process of installing unqualified Trump-loyalist Michael Ellis as the new National Security Agency General Counsel 72 hours prior to the beginning of the new Administration.
In the letter, the Speaker wrote, “Public reporting indicates that Mr. Ellis, a relatively recent law school graduate with a limited resume, was selected due to interference by the White House, and was chosen over much more qualified candidates. Moreover, Mr. Ellis has been reportedly involved in highly questionable activities that are disqualifying – including the infamous 2017 ‘midnight run’ to launder intelligence information through Rep. Devin Nunes and with efforts to shield information about President Trump’s July 2019 call with the President of Ukraine.”
It doesn’t appear clear how Pelosi plans on actually stopping this appointment considering that, yes, Trump is still president.
Even with her impeachment, Trump is still justified in this action.
And that’s gotta have her steaming mad!
