Trump Stands by McMaster, Claims He's 'Very Pro

Under pressure US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson
National security adviser H.R. McMaster said it's "impossible to overstate the danger" posed by North Korea.
McMaster has been at the center of several reports recently detailing his problems of getting along with Trump, butting heads with White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon over Afghanistan, and possibly being replaced as NSA by current CIA Director Mike Pompeo. He rose to fame when he wrote a note comparing the technique employed by the globalists and Islamists against President Trump (the creation of a parallel state) to that employed by the Chinese maoïsts.
Cohen-Watnick, who arrived at the White House under fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, had clashed with some other members of the council.
"This memo McMaster sent to Rice makes it so that she doesn't have to prove a continuing "need-to-know" to have access to classified information and in effect is a White House pardon of Susan Rice and could be used by other Obama officials who conducted targeted unmasking of the campaign as a defense", the official added.
Mr Trump had recently pondered a different role for General McMaster.

Rice has been accused by the president, who has cited no evidence, of involvement in attempts to unmask Trump officials wiretapped by USA intelligence agencies during last year's election.
President Donald Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, has reportedly concluded that his predecessor, Susan Rice, did nothing wrong when she tried to learn the identities of officials on Trump's transition team who were mentioned in U.S. intelligence reports a year ago.
McMaster is now involved in a power struggle within the Trump administration, facing off against the far-right wing headed by senior adviser Steve Bannon, who is attempting to bring about McMaster's resignation. The White House has said no decision has been made.
McMaster has been on a firing spree of Bannon loyalists. As the President departs Friday for a 17-day vacation at his golf resort in New Jersey, the strict order that Kelly has imposed in the West Wing will be tested by a President known to solicit advice and opinions during sojourns to his vacation homes.
In recent weeks there have been a series of high profile resignations and firings in the White House, with press secretary Sean Spicer purportedly resigning in protest at the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as communications director. That's just not what he does.
So were they right? "That common experience of having served in uniform and in battle creates a very strong bond between these people".
