CBS is reporting that Tillerson is handing out pink slips like candy, specifically to the State Department's "7th floor":

goodbye forever!
goodbye forever!

Why is this significant? Because the "7th floor" is known as the home to powerful, high-ranking State Department officials who did everything in their power to shield Hillary Clinton from justice. As the NY Post reported last October:

The FBI also released the summary of an interview that revealed a cabal at State that oversaw the email release — a “powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or as ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss . . . everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries.”

Imagine officials high in the George W. Bush administration calling themelves “the Shadow Government” as they oversaw a supposedly nonpartisan release of documents that could sink the White House hopes of its former boss.

You can bet this is part of Trump's counter-offensive, now that he realizes how many Beltway snakes are out to get him.

The great draining begins.
