Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.
Staffers in the offices of deputy secretary of state for management and resources as well as counselor were shown the door Thursday, according to CBS News.
Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor — top-floor bigs — a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.
The staffing changes came as Tillerson was on his first foreign trip — attending a G-20 meeting in Bonn, Germany.
“As part of the transition from one administration to the next, we continue to build out our team. The State Department is supported by a very talented group of individuals, both Republicans and Democrats,” State Department spokesman RC Hammond told CBS.
“We are appreciative to any American who dedicates their talents to public,” he added.
This week’s round of firings marks the second time State Department personnel have been cleared out since President Trump took office last month.
hopefully the same will happen to the irs, epa, va, dept. of education.....and many others....the entire government is full of progressive zealots and misfits.....that all supported things like the lies and coverups on fast and furious, Benghazi, the va....and dozens of other crimes...
CLEAN THE SWAMP---get rid of the leakers and prosecute them for treason and sedition
TILLERSON SHOULD "RID" THE STATE DEPT. OF "EVERY ONE" OF THE OBAMA/CLINTON INDIVIDUALS THAT WERE ON THE JOB DURING THEIR JURISDICTION AND TERMS! NONE CAN BE HONEST OR TRUSTED BY US DEPLORABLES!
To claim that the State Department is supported by talented individuals, both republican and democrat, is not necessarily a positive position. Not in my opinion.
I don't know about you, but as an American opposed to progressive liberal democrats and their evil intentions towards preserving the United States as a sovereign Republic, I could never have accepted a job in the Obama administration. I couldn't do it. And I wouldn't have.
By the same standard how could any proclaimed democrat be considered a talented asset in this post Clinton/Kerry/Obama Department of State?
If you were adamant about upholding the Constitution and Law, could you accept a job with a crime syndicate? On the other hand, if you are a criminal you could easily accept one in law enforcement. And I think that is what is going on here.
The swamp isn't dried up if you leave pits filled with snakes.
But, what do I know.
So far so GOOD !!!! I'm not overly impressed with leaving some DEMOCRATS aboard, but with things as they are, I'm not impressed with SOME Republicans remaining as well. We have TOADS on BOTH sides of the CORRUPT Aisles of Congress. One cannot rely on mere labels anymore. We must have sufficient and accurate VETTING PROCEDURES in place and a means to ENFORCE RULES OF CONDUCT and the COURAGE TO CARRY OUT WHATEVER NEEDS TO BE DONE TO RID the DEPARTMENT of UNSAVORY EMPLOYEES of the State Department, and anywhere Else that needs to be DRAINED !!!!
Time to take out the trash...all of Obama and Hillary's Bolshevik crew...They're infesting every Dept.

Over the next four years We will see many more staffers in every department within the abc soup called Our government
Do you realize how many of our Ambassadors are Gay ? How many do we know ? Not many. There were 3 in the news due to incidents. Including Stephens in 'Benghazi'.
Get to, and remove, the evil root in every department through out the entire government work force!
I have ALWAYS believed that FORNICATION is GOOD FOR YOU !!!! Now that there is concrete evidence, I shall CONTINUE TO PERFORM MY PATRIOTIC DUTY, and INSEMINATE as many young maidens as humanly possible, in the time that I have left on this Planet.
At 80 years of age, the task I have ahead may "KILL ME".......... But I could not think of a better way to fulfill many of my ambitions, than by "MAKING LOVE" until the bitter end and still make my COUNTRY a VIABLE and productive (not without saying,) The HORNIEST OLD MAN NATION in the WORLD !!!!
Let's try for the GUINNESS RECORD, GUYS and drive those numbers "UP" to the ceiling !!!!!!
Cut the crap. I heard you were at your doctor asking for an Rx for Viagra. He asked why at your age. You were reported to have told him it was just to get it long enough so you wouldn't piss in your slippers.
