Removing these two people from the National Security Council and replacing them with Steve Bannon is a decision so laughably bad for our national security, that it amazes me anyone can defend it.
Trump is not going to do things your way. Get used to it.

Yeah academic freedom is usually is a problem for tyrants. It upsets the indoctrination process a la N. Korean style!

He included in that group the Republican and Democratic Parties, as well as the traditional conservative press.

But Bannon is not the President and he doesn't have the say about this does he? The party that won the election is in power now. That party how ever you want to describe it, or what names you attempt to call it, are calling the shots. Bannon is just one small wheel in the assembling Trump machine.

Another allegation without a shred of evidence of truth.

The notion that the various intelligence services exist to deliver evidence of malfeasance to the media would be completely illegal but absurd as well.
