The Intelligence Director of the National Security Council left the agency, White House confirmed today.
The White House, said Ezra Cohen-Watnick, who during the brief mandate of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn “left the National Security Council (NSC)” was set up.
“[National Security Advisor] General McMaster’s good work at the NSC Management is headed by Ezra Cohen Intelligence estimates.”
White House said officially
“He has determined that at this point a different set of experiences is best suited for doing this,” said the official. McMaster is sure Ezra has many other significant contributions to national security in another position in the administration. ”
Exit Cohen-Watnick is the latest in a series of editions of the National Security Council, led by H. R. McMaster, who sought to purify Flynn allegedly.
Another Flynn employee, who was drafting a military intelligence officer, Derek Harvey, was expelled from the NSC last week. He worked as a Senior Advisor in the Middle East.
The withdrawal of Cohen-Watnick’s second significant change in White House staff took over retired General John Kelly as chief of staff.
Several hours after Kelly was sworn in on Monday, White House announced departure of Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.
