WH Deputy Chief Of Staff Joe Hagin To Leave Trump Admin, Exit Government

White House deputy chief of staff for operations Joe Hagin is stepping down from that role and exiting the government for the private sector, the White House said Tuesday.

Hagin played a central role in organizing President Donald Trump’s recent summit with North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un in Singapore, and prior to serving in the Trump administration was a part of the Regan administration and both Bush administrations.

Reports emerged before the Singapore summit that Hagin was looking to leave the White House and become deputy CIA director, rather than leave government entirely.

BuzzFeed News noted, however, that the resignation came a day after the outlet reported on an unusual client Hagin’s consulting firm took on during the Obama administration, when Hagin had entered the private sector as a cofounder of Command Consulting Group.

CCG. That company is all ex-spooks and Mossad. They specialize in rescuing kidnapped people from rogue countries. I heard...

Trumps Response:

“Joe Hagin has been a huge asset to my administration,” Trump said in a statement. “He planned and executed the longest and one of the most historic foreign trips ever made by a President, and he did it all perfectly. We will miss him in the office and even more on the road. I am thankful for his remarkable service to our great country.”

Here is the interesting bit:
“during the Obama administration, when Hagin had entered the private sector as a cofounder of Command Consulting Group.

The client, a power-hungry Libyan exile named Basit Igtet, was “deeply involved” in a “sex cult” known as NXIVM, BuzzFeed News reported. NXIVM’s leadership was charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy in April. Igtet’s wife, Sara Bronfman, provided the group tens of millions of dollars, according to the report. “I have nothing to do with the group,” Hagin told BuzzFeed News.

Igtet also reportedly met in 2013, while working with CCG, with the suspected ringleader of the 2012 Benghazi attack. An unnamed White House official told BuzzFeed that Hagin “was not aware of any meetings Igtet had had with Abu Khattala,” the publication said. Ahmed Abu Khattala was found guilty last year of four out of 18 counts related to the attack.”

Hmm.. NXIVM’s child sex trafficking and the Benghazi terrorist leader. How does one get such clients for one’s company as Hagan’s? And he had hoped to be Deputy Director of the CIA? How creepy is that?!

If they knew about this, back then, and you can net the manse that someone/s did, then this should have been brought up and pounded away at, during Obama's term's!

How did he get such clients? Easy...through HILARY, PODESTA,and OBAMA!

Igtet and Bronfman. Millions of dollars to promote a sex-slave cult, involving numerous Hollywood/celebrity women/men/gays with a tieback to Libyan jihadists whose objective is to destroy America. Players getting played, but at what cost to the USA? The book should be a sizzler.

The DM didn’t used to be that way. But the writing was on the wall when they kicked Katie Hopkins to the curb.

I am not sorry to see him go—or out of the CIA.

Anytime you purposefully compose a War Cabinet, you're going to attract mercenaries...it's the way of the world.

That said, I'm not sorry to see him go.

It seems to me that whenever someone leaves the Trump Administration, it turns out they’re either a low-life slime ball themselves, or hang out with low-life slime balls!

President Trump needs to SERIOUSLY start hiring people from The Heartland. There are plenty of Church Basement Ladies and PTA Moms or Retired Shop Teachers who doubled as the Football Coach that could whip things into shape!

I REALLY miss the days when our Federal Government was basically full of Farmers, Inventors, Military Men, Teachers, etc. They got the job done quickly, then they WENT HOME to their constituency and didn’t COME BACK until something LOCAL needed attention.

Enough with the hiring of Lawyers and Lobbyists and Investment Firm self-servers!

So people with half of a functioning brain will say, "There, they go again with their fake news!"
