Another High-Ranking National Security Official Resigns

Bolton's arrival at the White House also prompted the departure of Trump's national security council spokesman, Michael Anton.

It comes one day after deputy national security adviser Nadia Schadlow, who authored Trump's national security strategy, submitted her resignation.

Homeland security adviser Tom Bossert resigned on Tuesday, becoming the latest top-level staffer to exit the White House in recent weeks. "But I can tell you that he resigned", she told reporters Tuesday.

A national security source also told Fox News that Bolton is considering a merger of the NSC and Homeland Security Council (HSC) within the White House. "President Trump thanks him for his patriotic service and wishes him well".

So far this year, the president has changed his secretary of state, national security adviser, veterans affairs secretary, Central Intelligence Agency director, chief economic adviser, staff secretary, communications director and members of his legal team.

Bossert's most prominent role at the White House came after a series of devastating hurricanes hit several U.S. states and Puerto Rico last fall, when Bossert served as the White House's point person for the emergency response and rebuilding efforts.

Ricky Waddell, the No. 2 official at the National Security Council (NSC), plans to leave his post, The Hill reports. Dr. Nadia Schadlow, who now serves as the Deputy National Security Adviser, handed in her resignation and is expected to serve only until the end of this month.

While Schadlow's departure was widely expected following McMaster's departure last month, it's unclear how many more top officials will be forced out.

Bolton has begun reviewing the resumes of top staffers now serving on the National Security Council, a source close to the NSC told CNN.
