Trump-era White House official resigns after being unofficially pushed out by Biden

 National Security Agency General Counsel Michael Ellis — a holdover from the Trump administration — is resigning after being placed on indefinite leave by President Biden, per a letter to NSA Director Paul Nakasone obtained by Fox News.

Ellis served as the NSA’s top attorney, beginning the day before President Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 19. However, he was put on administrative leave and Biden officials opened a security inquiry on Jan. 20. 

“It has been an honor to protect my country as a national security professional since 2007, and I remain ready to serve as General Counsel of NSA,” Ellis wrote in his letter Friday. 

“However, I have been on administrative leave for nearly three months without any explanation or updates, and there is no sign that NSA will attempt to resolve the issue. I therefore resign my position, effective immediately.”

Despite being months into his employment with the agency, Ellis’s biography page at the NSA has remained pending. 

Ellis’s treatment wasn’t taken lightly by conservatives who believe he was punished for the actions of those in the Trump administration that the Biden administration didn’t care for. 

“What happened to Michael Ellis reeks of political payback, and Intelligence Committee Republicans will be closely examining all these events,” Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif, told Fox News in a statement. 

Prior to working as an attorney for the National Security Council Ellis was the White House’s senior director for intelligence under former President Donald Trump. 

Ellis was placed on leave due to a pending Department of Defense (DOD) Inspector General (IG) evaluation and an NSA security inquiry into the handling of classified information, according to Fox News.

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?



HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

Can you tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Members of the Senate

I have written and even called my Republican Representative several times and I have yet to ever hear back. I live in California and I have reached out to other Republican Representatives outside my state. The only reply I got back was from Ted Cruz office and was told they are too busy with their constituents in their state yet I get letters and phone calls all the time asking for donations from Republicans all over the country.

No, it was debunked! It was all lies!! Starting with Hilary Clinton and black Obama in the WH, they cant stand Trump. Would do literally anything to permanently rid themselves of him!!

Trump has not been guilty of a single thing he has been accused of as of late!!

Only President to not take a Salary for r years in office!! Yet they are looking into Trump Corp and financials, Tax Returns! He wasnt involved in business while in office of President.

They tried to impeach him twice!! Nothing stuck, because it was all lies!! He wasnt guilty!!

The fact that you support Biden and Harris shows that you do not care for this country at all. I was a Dem all my life, but when Trump ran for office, things didn’t make sense. I watched CNN and never thought about right-wing news because CNN and MSM media were prolific in their negative opinions of them. Then one day I decided to widen my news choices and boy were my eyes opened. I was crushed at all the lies I had been told. I went to nonpartisan news outlets and I was shocked at the lies upon lies I had believed. Well, after tons and tons of reading and thorough investigation, I made the decision to become a Republican. I opened my eyes and mind, and I have met and talked to so many that have decided to leave the Democratic Party. I am proud to say I’m a very well-informed Republican that is fighting for my country and opening other people’s eyes and minds . God Bless America.

Yep, I get a train load of asking for money also. I sent one back saying I’m not supporting anyone who wants the vax. Actually I live in upper Michigan and my Rep is pretty good, but I don’t call. I do emails. What do we expect out of the cold hearted lizards who are running everything. We seem to be on our own patriots. These “families” have been running our country for decades. When are we going to wake up? The people who direct these so called “leaders” are rich and powerful. If we are going to win it has to be a group effort. EFFORT! There is so much going on behind the scenes that we don’t know, but it must be even worse than what we see. How can we tell who is with us or against us?

That is not the number you quoted. The number is unknown because people that were negative were counted as positive because the doctors were paid for a positive result. So no one will ever know how few and how many there were. I was tested as negative and the doctor reported it as positive.

The bad side to that is that if you impeach both of the “dynamic duo”, you wind up with Nasty Nancy Pelosi as president and that’s enough to give anyone a headache. Why not go ahead and impeach her as well. Clean out the whole nest of Libtards at once!

Now It’s time the Republicans have todo somethings,we can’t let the Democrats do the bad things for our beloved country. Remember, I am a Republican and a US citizen also, I think I have a voice in the future and the Republic of this country, and I will not let the thugs of the Ji xing Ping to destroy of this nation. ThePelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, John Roberts,CNN.,ABC , MSNBC, CBS, etc….they are freely to do whatever they want and we are bowing our heads to accept their dominance and don’t have our voices in the House of Representatives and the Senate? It’s unacceptable to me. Thank you very for listening.

What are these bad things? reverse the deficits of Trump, the Pandemic Failure, the utter corruption, the Stone, Manafort, Russian scandals. It is all coming out. So it is unacceptable to you! The bottom line is that all is coming out, and it isn’t good. Next up multiple Trump indictments, on countless charges. What will you say then? It is all a frame up?

“All is coming out.” You’re absolutely right about that.. You are nuts! I’m sorry to have to write that, but it’s the truth. You don’t know what you are talking about. You are publishing lies about another known individual.
I believe it’s called slander (or dementia) when you make up stories about people in the print media as well as anywhere else. Slander is a crime unless I suppose you are proven clinically mentally deficient. I’d be more careful if I were you. Either you or your handler ought to keep closer tabs on you for your own safety.

Biden is the one who needs pushed out. Biden should have never been the president and nether should have been Harris. They both want to hurt this country and the people of this country in any way they can.

Richard J Garfunkel (@guest_1215223)

That’s tough- he won by 7 million, despite the lies, the slander and the riots caused by police killings, which continue to this day! He won fair and square and Trump should have been convicted by the Senate the first time. That was the GOP mistake. Now they are stuck with him and his grifter family.

So the enemies are the Democrats? Have you noticed the DJIA is 6600 points higher than on Election Day. As I recall that was with no promise of another tax giveaway to corporations or the rich! The DJIA on Election Day was 18,589 and by the same day in April of 2017, it was up 2400 points. Look likes the investors like what they see. But, did you realize that after three years of Trump the deficit was up $ 3 trillion and for the 15 months before a rate cut by the FED the GDP was up less than 2%. We never were close to balancing the budget and in fact, when did we need a rate cut with a so-called booming economy. But after 80+ months of growth under Obama, Trump hyped the markets with tax cuts and deficits. Well that is all over. He was the first President since Hoover to lose jobs during his administration!

So, Michael Ellis gets put on leave BEFORE the investigation into his “bad” behavior has even begun, his main offense being that he’s a Republican, yet Eric Swallowell, who was caught sleeping with a known Communist Chinese spy, is still in his position in the House, and still on the intelligence committee, without any investigation at all. And the Democrat Party is protecting him from scrutiny and backing his actions all the way. I guess we’ll have to rewrite that bit about “justice for all” into “justice for everybody in the Democrat Party” and none for anybody else. And Fang Fang the Communist spy was allowed to leave the country after facing no penalties, and is happily ever after back in Communist China. This is how the Democrats administer justice fairly.

Ask Pelosi how she became so rich, what about the new MICROSOFT stock deal that will net her millions more. She did this right before MICROSOFT signed the new govt. contract for millions and millions….
“WE THE PEOPLE” should have a vote, not have one person like her making decisions that effect normal citizens. She has no grasp on reality, just financial gains for herself.
