Report: Rex Tillerson Presiding Over a ‘Bloodbath’ at the State Department

(Before It's News)

The only way any of President Trump’s appointees are going to have much success in Washington is if they can “fundamentally transform” each of their respective departments. It looks like Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is doing just that. Tillerson is shaking up the staff at Foggy Bottom. The NY Post’s Daniel Halper calls it a “bloodbath.”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.

Staffers in the offices of deputy secretary of state for management and resources as well as counselor were shown the door Thursday, according to CBS News.

Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor — top-floor bigs — a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.

This and some earlier firings/resignations last month are setting a new tone. CBS reports that during the recent visit from Israeli PM Netanyahu, there were no officials from the State Department involved in any of the meetings.

This is welcome news.

Of all the Executive Branch agencies, the State Department is probably the one most in need of a serious culture change.
