President Trump picks Lt. Gen. HR McMaster as national security adviser
Outside probe for Russian intrigue

Flynn stepped down early this week after revelations that he had discussed US sanctions on Russia with the Russian ambassador to the United States before Trump took office and misled Vice President Mike Pence about the conversations. His actions are suspected to have violated a law banning civilians from engaging in diplomatic activities. That South Korea has gone through six official "Republics" in that time, along with periods of martial law and coups d'etat makes it an odd choice for a model for long wars.
While Trump insists he did not instruct Flynn to speak with the Russian ambassador, Democrats are calling for a comprehensive, nonpartisan investigation into the matter. Defense Secretary Mattis reportedly urged McMaster to accept the position, and McCain tweeted his support for McMaster taking the job.
President Trump was angered after he was not fully briefed on one of the first executive orders drafted by Bannon. Trump hinted at lifting sanctions imposed on Russian Federation over the Ukraine crisis. We need leaders who have physical and mental courage on the battlefield, of course, but also the courage to speak their minds and offer respectful and candid feedback to their superiors. For his third and final pick, Trump didn't take any chances, appointing an active duty general who couldn't refuse his request.
Trump announced the pick Monday at his Palm Beach club and said McMaster is "a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience". He earned a Silver Star for his service in the first Gulf War, when the nine tanks under his command destroyed 80 Iraqi tanks.
According to Reuters, McMaster is known for speaking his mind and challenging his superiors. In that book, McMaster charged, with backup from then-newly available declassified documents, that the leadership of the military, up to and including Gen. Maxwell Taylor, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Earle Wheeler, succumbed to the lies about Vietnam of the Johnson Administration and therefore failed to carry out their Constitutional duty. Three years later, he was included on Time's list of "The Top 100 Most Influential People". "I could not imagine a better, more capable national security team than the one we have right now".
