1) Trump wanted Harward to retain Michael 'RT' Flynn deputy KT McFarland. Harward wanted his own people working with him, not Flynn holdovers.

2) Trump sycophants and political hacks on the NSC such as white supremacist Steve Bannon is a deal breaker.

3) The Trump administration is dysfunctional and at war with the US intelligence community.
