(PatriotWise.com)- President Donald Trump is reportedly preparing to fire FBI Director Christopher Wray, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and CIA Director Gina Haspel if he wins the November 3 presidential election, according to Axios.
The president’s move to “immediately fire” the three top officials comes after an investigation into a laptop containing emails from Hunter Biden, which connect Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden with a foreign money-making scheme during his time as vice president, was dropped.
Reports suggest that President Trump is also planning to make several other replacements after firing these top three officials.
Axios says that Haspel and Wray are both “despised and distrusted” by the Trump administration and that if it wasn’t for the potentially damaging headlines that would occur in the run-up to the election, he would have fired them already.
An anonymous source spoke to the news outlet about how the Trump administration sees the officials.
“The view of Haspel in the West Wing is that she still sees her job as manipulating people and outcomes, the way she must have when she was working assets in the field,” the anonymous source said. “It’s bred a lot of suspicion of her motives.”
Haspel has also previously been accused of standing in the way of revealing the true origins of the Russia investigation, which ultimately proved allegations about the president colluding with Russia to win the 2016 election were not true.
In September, Tucker Carlson spoke about Haspel on Fox News, and how she may have blocked the release of documents that showed the origins of the FBI investigation.
The Axios report suggests that the president is planning to fire Haspel for her opposition to declassifying documents relating to that investigation. As for Wray, the president is reportedly angry for several reasons, including his refusal to remove FBI officials tied to the failed Russia witch hunt. As for Esper, President Trump is also reportedly angry after he pushed back against the president’s call to send in the military to stop the far-left riots that destroyed cities over the summer and into fall.
