Reports: Petraeus Off the List, Trump Down to Three Candidates to Replace Flynn

Brooke Seipel – TheHill:

Retired general and former CIA Director David Petraeus has reportedly pulled his name from consideration to replace Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal Friday, Petraeus’s name was floated for the role, but the White House was miffed by his concerns about staffing and independence. It’s not clear how seriously he was being considered.

Lost another one, Mr. Trump. General Patraeus wasn’t interested in being a toady.

I suspect there’s a retired second lieutenant somewhere, a regular caller to Rush Limbaugh’s show with plenty of worldly experience who’d love the job, though.

Bottom line, nobody with enough experience and smarts to do the job wants any part of Trump’s shitshow.
