The entire National Security Council is about to get a reboot if Vice Admiral Robert Harward accepts President Donald Trump's offer to replace Michael Flynn as national security adviser, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
That is, the Free Beacon reports that Harward, a former Navy SEAL and deputy commander of U.S. Central Command, would "start over" at NSC.
While that prospect excites Democrats and Republican "Never Trumpers," Flynn disciples at the NSC are nervous that their tenures could be as short-lived as his, according to the Free Beacon.
The Free Beacon reports that a former CIA officer and official in George W. Bush's administration has been emailing foreign policy wonks in D.C. to gauge their interest in working for Harward.
"Bob Harward is going to 'start over' at the NSC in about two weeks," Mary Beth Long wrote in the mail, the Free Beacon reported.
That backs up a report on the Foreign Policy website headlined "Robert Harward Plans a Housecleaning of National Security Council staff."
Flynn resigned late Monday amid a maelstrom of pressure and heat for lying to Vice President Mike Pence about the nature and timing of his conversations with the Russian ambassador regarding sanctions being imposed by former President Barack Obama.
