A number of President Trump’s supporters have asked him to cut ties with his National Security Adviser, General McMaster.

Mc Master is extremely brilliant and considered to be right at the top of the field in matters of strategy and Russian arms. However, his work in the National Security Council reveals that he continues to have contact with the Team Obama and this casts doubt on the decisions he has taken.

First, General Mc Master has fired several members of the Council, which was unjustified in at least two cases. All the members fired were known to be opposed to the agreement that the Obama Administration reached with Iran.

Second, it appears that in April, he gave permanent access to classified information to his predecessor, Barack Obama’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice. As it happens, Congress is investigating Rice because she is suspected of spying on the Trump team during the electoral campaign and the transition period.

Third, for the last eleven years General Mc Master worked for the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS). This think thank was used by the Obama Administration to “sell” the Iran deal. This operation was directly financed by George Soros, either directly by the Soros Foundation or through its intermediary, Ploughshares Fund. Furthermore IISS’s principal donors are multinationals that are currently trying to get a foot in Iran. Finally on 5 June 2017, John Kerry, the former Secretary of State invited by Ploughshares Fund, declared that General Mc Master was the best resource to follow through with the Iran deal.

Media Matters for America, which is David Brock’s firm and which is also funded by George Soros, has leapt to Mc Master’s defense.

Three weeks ago, President Trump fired the White House’s chief administrative officer, Reince Priebus, who was organizing leaks of confidential information to destabilize Trump.
