Two top House Democrats allege that high-level political appointees in the State Department and senior White House officials have worked with conservative activists to purge from the agency career officials deemed insufficiently loyal to President Trump.
A letter sent Thursday to White House chief of staff John Kelly and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan alleges that political appointees at the State Department have characterized career officials in "derogatory terms."
Among the descriptors used for certain career officials were "a leaker and a troublemaker" and a "turncoat," the letter from Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) reads, citing documents obtained from a whistleblower.

Go, Trump, MAGA. Get rid of the trash.
Winning an election has its perks.
No, it’s the American people who want a DC Swamp purge!! That fact was determined during the November election, ya think?
“career officials deemed insufficiently loyal to President Trump. . . .”
Correction: Insufficiently loyal to our country.
Wow, they say this like its a bad thing.
FLUSH THE SH*T right OUT of the Snake Department!
its been far, far too long already
Please, DRAIN the damned Swamp today!
Sounds like a grand idea.
Purge the swamp, drain the swamp — either way MAGA!!!
The correct answer is “You’re damn right we seek a State Department purge, and our greatest error in this administration is to have failed to insist on same from the day we took office. We have been struggling with endless leaks, many of which were felonious leaks of classified materials that are clearly never going to be prosecuted nor investigated. We have struggled with the likes of Strzok, Lisa Page and James Comey in the FBI and Clapper in the CIA clearly advancing an anti-Trump agenda and we have every reason to suspect that similarly situated operatives are active within the State Department as well. Like Evelyn Farkas, like Susan Rice, like Samantha Power”. Any questions?
Met a woman at a Maryland Republican meeting who was coming out of the closet.
She was a retired State Dept. lawyer, Jewish who was in the processes of announcing to friends and family she has been a Repub. for decades!
She told me State was absolutely disgusting. If you didn’t whole-heartedly profess the progressive rant, you were shunned.
So where is the problem of purging the corrupt government
In the words of Valerie Jarrett: We won................................
And why can’t the boss fire his workers if he wants to? Happens all the time in private industry. So why not fire the government sloths left over from Obama who have been sabotaging Trump & the 63 million Americans who voted for him?
Yeah, once upon a time there was a POTUS who came in and fired all the US attorneys!
For once, I hope the democrats wild accusations are 100% accurate.
