    Trump names finalists for national security adviser

    Anyone want to do some digging?

    President Trump on Tuesday named five finalists to replace former national security adviser John Bolton, a list that included Vice President Pence’s top aide on national security.

    Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One, Trump said the top candidates are Fred Fleitz, Bolton’s former chief of staff and a former CIA analyst; former deputy national security adviser Rick Waddell; Lisa E. Gordon-Hagerty, the undersecretary for nuclear security at the Department of Energy; Army Gen. Keith Kellogg, Pence's national security adviser; and Robert O’Brien, special envoy for hostage affairs at the State Department.

    Trump offered praise for Kellogg and Waddell and called O’Brien “fantastic.”

    “I love Keith Kellogg. Keith Kellogg, he’s been with me from the beginning. He’s great,” Trump said, later noting he liked Waddell “a lot.”

    All political appointees who already have government positions, 3 in the white house itself.

    I bet all five are staunch non-interventionists who have a skeptical view of American activities abroad...
