Officers on the Nationwide Safety Council are questioning about the way forward for their group after the abrupt firing of John Bolton.
When Bolton arrived in March 2018, he introduced with him a number of officers to fill key roles —and the destiny of these officers is not clear.
As staffers detailed to the NSC phased out, Bolton labored to exchange them with folks he’d labored with beforehand and he thought of loyal to him. His objective was to have senior leaders in place that have been “his folks” because the 2020 election season started.
If these officers depart en masse, the NSC will likely be majorly depleted, so it is not anticipated they may all observe Bolton out the door.
However there’s uncertainty at this time about what occurs subsequent.
