One of my favorite Trump appointees, Richard Grenell, has revealed an interesting fact about Russell Travers. Travers was fired by President Trump because he refused to enact needed reforms to his job as running counter-terrorism for the Trump administrator.
He somehow made the mistake of believing he was elected as the president of the United States instead of Trump.
He later proved his Deep State bonafide by declaring the information coming from Hunter Biden’s laptop was merely Russian misinformation.
That much failure would be enough for almost any man, but not for Travers. Take a guess what his current job is.
Biden rehired Russell Travers and today he is leading Joe Biden’s disastrous and unintelligible Afghanistan evacuation plan. What will his next job be? Guarding the nuclear codes?
I do believe that Travers would be incapable of running a house of ill repute on a Naval Base. The only thing he seems to succeed at is failure.
As recriminations fly among Biden administration officials over who bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, some are questioning the responsibility of Russell Travers, who was fired by the Trump administration as acting head of the National Counterterrorism Center and subsequently rehired by President Joe Biden to lead the interagency process on the evacuation operation.
In March 2020, then-Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell fired Travers as acting head of the NCTC as part of the Trump administration’s efforts to streamline a bloated agency and remove ineffective individuals.
At the time, the move was decried by anonymous former officials as a “purge” of career professionals, as the Washington Post reported. “The removals have shocked Travers’s colleagues, who are upset at the treatment of someone so well-regarded, according to the two former officials,” the Post reported.
Travers would later in October 2020 sign a letter declaring the belief that the disclosure of emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
In January, Biden rehired Travers as deputy homeland security adviser at the National Security Council to go after domestic extremists.
