    Here’s a story…

    There’s a radical group called Sunrise that has been parting outside the White House all weekend

    They stated on Monday (today) they were going to get radical… not sure what that meant

    Their goal is to remove Trump from office now and overthrow the US Government

    A very radical woman who is with the radical group Sunrise was caught having ties to Esper

    And apparently Esper was leaking information to help Sunrise over throw the US Gov and Trump

    Laura Robb worked at DHSHQ for 3 1/2 years including CISA and FDA

    She too was just caught leaking to Sunrise

      I don’t doubt this. Esper has balked at carrying out President Trump’s agenda on a number of occasions and was openly vocal about it…insubordinate, I’d say. He was even worse than Mattis, whom I’ve had no respect for since the day he didn’t back Lt. Col. Chessani re Haditha.

      That is interesting. Esper is the one who opposed Trump on using the Insurrection Act.

    Glad to see Esper go, now how about axing the heads of the FBI, CIA Navy and Marines?

    ” I would like to thank…” to me means, “I would if I could…” Love POTUS
