NATIONAL SECURITY/TRUMP PEOPLE/STEVE BANNON: “Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, has been removed from the National Security Council, according to a senior administration official.
An official says Bannon was only on board to oversee now-ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s work to ‘deoperationalize’ the National Security Council from the broad purview it had under Susan Rice.
It was an nontraditional role for a political hand like Bannon to have a role on the high-level policy council.
The White House has sought to give back a lot of control to the Defense Department and other national security agencies.”
