As promised Trump and his team have begun to "Drain the Swamp"
While Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is on his first trip overseas, he had his close aides fire staff at the State Department on Thursday.
Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed.
However, those who work on the seventh-floor are no ordinary employees.
That’s because the “7th floor” is known as the home to powerful, high-ranking State Department officials who did everything in their power to shield Hillary Clinton from justice. As the NY Post reported last October:
“The FBI released the summary of an interview that revealed a cabal at State that oversaw the email release — a “powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or as ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss . . . everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries.'”
“Imagine officials high in the George W. Bush administration calling themelves ‘the Shadow Government’ as they oversaw a supposedly nonpartisan release of documents that could sink the White House hopes of its former boss,” the Post concluded.
