Schiff on FLOTUS Calling for WH Official to Go: The Trumps Think You’re Either With Them or Against Them
Congressman Adam Schiff, the incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, reacted on CNN tonight to the “rare” step of First Lady Melania Trump calling for a White House national security official to go.
The First Lady’s office put out a blistering statement today saying that Mira Ricardel, the deputy national security advisor, should no longer be in the White House. There were some conflicting follow-up reports earlier but it looks like Ricardel is on the way out.
Schiff told Erin Burnett it certainly looks like after the firing of Jeff Sessions, more heads are about to roll.
Rep. Schiff: It's "rare" for a first lady to publicly push for the dismissal of a top national security aide. "The first family takes this job very personally. You're either with the Trumps or you're against them and if you're against them, it doesn't matter what your record is." pic.twitter.com/yEP3eVFY16

“The first family takes this job very personally,” he said. “You’re either with the Trumps or you’re against them and if you’re against them, it doesn’t matter what your record is.”
