When National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster agreed to vouch for his predecessor’s reliability in handling classified information — despite abundant evidence to the contrary, Susan Rice urged him to get rid of something called the Strategic Initiatives Group.

That group was established by President Trump’s former campaign chairman and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. Its purpose was to provide the president with independent evaluations of such questions as what to do about the deteriorating conflict in Afghanistan, the threat posed by Shariah-supremacists in America like the Muslim Brotherhood and the defective Iran deal. One of its leading lights was Trump loyalist Sebastian Gorka and it posed a threat to McMaster’s anti-Trump National Security Council.

Now, Bannon and Gorka are gone. So will be the president’s in-house supplier of second-opinions. Susan Rice is doubtless pleased by Gen. McMaster’s purges. But the president’s supporters aren’t.
