JUST IN: Explosive Staffing Changes Coming For The White House – No One Is Safe


As 2017 comes to a close, we can only hope that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is closing in on the Trump campaign and family also. He’s made progress with recent indictments; however, the White House has tried to portray a nonchalant attitude to ensure their Republican base there is nothing to worry about.

However, there may be something to worry about especially with new information that has leaked from the White House. The Washington Post reported that officials inside the White House are making plans to change their staffing line up as they are fearing what lies ahead in 2018.

‘… White House officials have been in quiet talks about revamping the West Wing operation and filling open posts ahead of what could be a politically difficult 2018.’

At issue is the fact that Trump’s administration has been a circus full of follies throughout his first year as president. Though he recently pulled off the tax reform agenda, Republicans have still lost on key issues such as repealing Obamacare.

With the defeat of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to Democrat Doug Jones, the Senate has little room for error. With 2018 mid-term elections coming up soon, it’s very reasonable to believe Democrats can take back the Senate.

In fact, Trump has been warned by outsiders that the White House would not be able to handle the 2018 election.

‘In recent weeks, the president has heard from a growing number of outside advisers, confidants and members of Congress, warning that the White House is poorly positioned to handle the tough 2018 political landscape. In a particularly tense meeting in the Oval Office last week that spilled into public view, Corey Lewandowski … vented his concern that the president was being ill served by everyone from his political operation to the Republican National Committee.’

Furthermore, The Washington Post noted if the House were able to be retaken by Democrats, you could expect the process of impeachment to be started.

‘The president has been informed by aides and friends that if he loses the House in 2018, not only would Democrats almost certainly begin impeachment proceedings against him but his entire legislative agenda would be imperiled, making any 2020 reelection bid far more challenging.’

According to friends, Trump seems unworried by these possibilities; however, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) has warned the House could lose almost 20 Republican votes, if not more.

‘I’m a numbers guy – we could lose as many as 15 to 18 seats in the House. There are a lot of people who are suggesting a lot more than that.’

So, what does this mean? It means the White House is scared. It also means that Democrats must use the momentum gained from winning the Senate seat in Alabama to light a fire under the masses to get more Democrats in office. It’s not impossible. It shouldn’t even be that difficult with the way Trump runs things. However, Democrats must commit to seeing this thing through to ensure they can stop the Trump agenda and a possible 2020 reelection.
