Bloomberg/Politics reported yesterday April 11, 2018 former National Security Council member Ezra Cohen-Watnick has been requested to join Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ staff.
The request apparently came in September, 2017 after being removed from the NSC in August of that year. It is alleged the removal was due to Watnick sharing classified information with House Intelligence Committe chair Devin Nunes. Denials came from both Watnick and Nunes.
Watnick was a member of General Flynn’s staff at the time of his removal. The president apparently was under the impression Watnick was working in the DOJ all along, when Trump discovered Watnick was not, it was ordered that the Department of Justice hire him as previously directed. Watnick is leaving his position at Oracle, Inc to join the DOJ on Monday.
This interesting young man has a mysterious past in that he seems to polarize opinion regarding himself. He is either funny, intelligent, thoughtful, loyal and hard working or he is not spoken of much at all. Confused? The Atlantic has a run down of what they have been able to uncover. Give it a read.
