o quote the Godfather, it seems Rex Tillerson was “taking care of family business” when he went on his first trip overseas. While he is traveling, he had his closest aides quietly fired some Obama hold over staff at the State Department.
But these aren’t just any employees. Much of seventh-floor staff working for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were fired today.
There is real significance behind this house cleaning. Because the seventh-floor workers are no ordinary employees.
The “7th floor” is the well-known home to powerful, high-ranking State Department officials who tried everything in their power to make sure Hillary Clinton never faced justice.
The NY Post shed some light on this shadow government cabal in an explosive report last October,
“The FBI released the summary of an interview that revealed a cabal at State that oversaw the email release — a “powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or as ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss . . . everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries.’”
“Imagine officials high in the George W. Bush administration calling themselves the Shadow Government as they oversaw a supposedly nonpartisan release of documents that could sink the White House hopes of its former boss,” the Post concluded.
This is a developing story we will report the names and the roles of the fired employees when we have them.
