    He declined because he didn't want his staff hand-picked by Steve Bannon and Steve Miller.

    At this point, the guy who FINALLY takes it....will have zero credibility, because it'll mean he's satisfactory to Trump and he is fine with Trump's insanity.

    Maybe Harward took Eliot Cohen's warning to normal conservatives seriously:
    DON'T join the Trump admin.

    A friend of Harward's says he was reluctant to take NSA job bc the WH seems so chaotic; says Harward called the offer a "shit sandwich."

    The main issue was he wanted Bannon and his goons off the council; not sacked, just not on the council. They don't belong there. The NSC is an apolitical institution run by career experts, not campaign personnel. You know it, I know it, the press knows it. Trump is going to keep running into these roadblocks until he realizes this.

    So come out and say it yourself, Admiral. Stands need to be taken. Show the same courage you showed when you were serving with the SEALs. Let everyone know that Trump is politicizing national security and you were too disgusted by the situation to let even your lifelong dedication to serve compel you to accept it.
