BREAKING. Obama Administration Is Trying To Fire Trump’s NSA Choice
Yesterday, the Trump transition team announced that it has selected Admiral Mike Rogers, current head of the NSA, to be Director of National Intelligence to succeed the seriously butt-hurt James Clapper. Now it turns out that the Secretary of Defense, Ashton Carter, and Clapper are are trying to fire him.
Something is happening here, but it is not very clear.  NSA has had problems with internal security since before its current director Mike Rogers took command.  Since he has been there, more breaches have been discovered.

The NY Times story is here:
