Axios claims that they have five different sources who claim that President Trump is thinking of firing Dan Coats as Director of National Intelligence .
There appears to be multiple reasons for making the move including insulting the president at the Aspen Security Forum and he is rumored to be the stumbling block to the declassifying documents to prove that the FBI and the DOJ were weaponized to spy on Trump before and after taking office.
The DOJ needs these documents for various investigations they have undertaken and without access, they can never get to the truth.
President Donald Trump is considering replacing Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, two sources familiar with the situation confirmed to the Daily Caller on Friday.
Axios first reported the news on Friday, with five sources telling the news outlet that the president has been floating the idea of getting rid of Coats for months, and one source suggested the change could happen “sooner rather than later.”
“He’ll be gone,” a source confirmed to the Caller, asserting that the president has a list of potential replacements.
Fred Fleitz, the president and CEO of the Center for Security Policy and a former chief of staff to John Bolton, is being considered for the position. A source with knowledge told the Caller that Trump first raised the idea to Fleitz during a meeting in February, and cited Fleitz’s opposition to a war with Iran as one potential sticking point for the president.
“That’s been a big rift in the Republican Party,” the source explained, noting that Trump campaigned on getting the U.S. out of endless wars.
