Donald J. Trump wrote:General Jim Mattis will be retiring, with distinction, at the end of February, after having served my Administration as Secretary of Defense for the past two years. During Jim’s tenure, tremendous progress has been made, especially with respect to the purchase of new fighting equipment. General Mattis was a great help to me in getting allies and other countries to pay their share of military obligations. A new Secretary of Defense will be named shortly. I greatly thank Jim for his service!
General Mattis follows Generals Flynn, McMaster and Kelly out the door. I hope that he can stabilize the mess in Syria (and maybe Afghanistan too) in the next two months.

Here is Secretary Mattis's resignation letter. It's quite clear from his letter that he's resigning in protest of Donny's decision to withdraw troops from Syria. --Bob

Meanwhile, like that miraculous oil, Rosenstein stays in place amidst the turmoil. Here is a letter from the Assistant Attorney General about Whitaker's fitness to oversee the Russia investigation. It says Rosenstein is still managing Mueller, and Whitaker doesn't plan to fire Mueller.

There's also a lawsuit by state attorneys general, including Pennsylvania's, that Whitaker's appointment is illegal. Whitaker knows that any partisan action he takes could be blocked by a judge or Congress. As for Barr, I expect the Senate will demand that he promises, like Richardson and Ruckelshaus, to keep his hands off Mueller.

But no! Today Trump tweeted that Deputy Secretary Patrick Shanahan will take over on January 1. To make matters worse, the U.S. special envoy to the coalition against Daesh, Brett McGurk, who was going to retire in February, quit too. A small silver lining: Trump promised Erdogan that the withdrawal will be slow and highly coordinated.

That is until the next time Trump changes his mind.

I can't imagine trump doing anything coordinated.

Could this be the real one?

I saw Sarah Sanders confirm it on Fox News. But she's a liar like all the rest of the nazis in the white house, so it's probably not true. I'll stick with all the REAL news outlets like axios, nbc, cnn, etc. Rosenstein got fired a long time ago. trump just hid it from us.
Your friendly neighborhood racist. On the waiting list to be a nazi. Designated an honorary 'snowflake'. Trolled by the very best, as well as by BJ. Always typical, unlike others.., Fulminator, Hopelessly in the tank for trump... inappropriate... Flocking himself... Probably a tucking sexist, too... All thought comes from the right wing noise machine(TM)... A clear and present threat to The Future Of Our Democracy.. Doesn't understand anything

Update: Shanahan lasted only six months and was replaced by Mark Esper.

Another shakeup today: Navy Secretary Richard Spencer was forced out after clashing with Pres. Trump over disciplining disgraced Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.

That didn't work out as well as I had hoped either.

Consistent with pretty much everything else Donny has done. This will have a destructive effect on unit cohesion. --Bob

Bob, can you provide your bona fides regarding how you are qualified to opine knowingly on what would be good or bad for unit cohesion at this time in any of the Armed Services, let alone the Navy?
