In the day of fake news, where one title tells the reader that Trump was responsible for removal of the National Guard General, will other media screams that it was Obama’s call, what is the reader to believe?
The big question would be why would Donald Trump do such a thing if true.
If this is laid at the feet of Obama and chaos reigns the day then Obama will have accomplished another of his twisted objectives, mucking up the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump.
Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz
UPDATE: This just in.
And a senior Defense Department official tells Fox News that the Trump presidential transition team, after learning about the situation, offered Schwartz, a Bush appointee, a few additional days on the job but that he refused.
A person close to the team reportedly said members indeed wanted to keep Schwartz but that the Army pushed for a replacement.
A senior Defense official also told Fox that the Army was neither consulted nor notified about the Schwartz decision.
“The Army leadership had nothing to do with the decision,” the official said.
Schwartz reportedly said the final orders came in an email from the Pentagon.
Like hundreds of other political appointees, Schwartz must tender his resignation and leave his post immediately after Trump, a Republican, officially takes office. (Source)
Stage set for disaster on Inauguration Day? Riots? Anarchists?
Editor’s Note: This article originally said that Obama ordered Schwartz to be removed.
However, the Wa.Po article makes it unclear exactly who sent the email ordering Schwartz to be removed from his post on Jan. 20 at 12:01 p.m. and it has been reported two different ways (1: ‘Trump ordered’, 2: ‘Obama ordered’).
Just to be clear, it looks as if Trump may have ordered Schwartz to be removed. (Source)
