If they're swampy, get rid of them.
Trump is BRAND NEW to the establishment, as a force, of course many will approach to court the Donald.
First term, we'll see how it rolls out. Now that we all know that the usual swamp creatures are still being swampy, Trump can now judge accordingly.
These threads have no merit because the swamp LONG existed and as an outsider, Trump is and will pick a few bad apples.
Either way, as you pointed out yourself, No Russian Collusion, the primary crux of the whole ordeal.

First, some background.
The aide referred to in the title is Joe Hagin, the White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. Prior to joining the Trump administration, Hagin was already an established swamp creature. You may recall him as Bush 43's Deputy Chief of Staff, 2001-2008. In fact, Hagin has worked in every single GOP administration from Reagan through Trump's.
Quite the establishment deep state type.
In 2009, along with former Secret Service director W. Ralph Basham, two former Bush chiefs of staff for the CBP, Steve Atkiss and Thad Bingel, Hagin founded Command Consulting Group (CCG). As is noted in the article below, CCG bills itself as "a global security and intelligence consulting firm that provides advisory services to governments, corporations, and high net worth individuals."
CCG offers a wide range of services from security assessments and personnel training to political consultancy, private intelligence and trade facilitation, through more than a handful of subsidiary companies under the CCG umbrella. Like a lot of international mercenary outfits, they're pretty hush hush when it comes to their clients.
One of those clients is/was Basit Igtet, a wealthy, Swiss-educated Libyan who was living in exile when Qaddafi was ousted and killed. Reportedly, Igtet's father was a rebel leader killed by Qaddafi and with his father's murderer out of the way, Igtet saw his chance to make it big in a new Libyan government. He's not an unknown but it's unlikely that most of you reading this have ever heard of him.
On the other hand, you may have heard of his wife, Sara Bronfman, daughter of deceased billionaire Edgar Bronfman, whose family made a fortune bootlegging from Canada during Prohibition in the US and in 1928, purchased Seagram's. The family's business empire eventually grew to include Universal Studios, NBC Universal, a big fat chunk of DuPont and other entities at its peak, up until about 2000 when it looks like things collapsed and large pieces were sold off to various buyers.
Interestingly, the Seagram heiress who was a known supporter of Lama Tenzin Dhonden, a very close aide to the Dalai Lama (& his emissary to the US), appears to also have been the supposedly celibate monk's lover in the years just before her interest in Libya and subsequent relationship with Igtet.
Lama Tenzin Dhonden, who was often characterized as the Dalai Lama's "gatekeeper," was last year canned by the Dalai Lama's trust over an influence peddling scandal. Implicated in this scandal is Bronfman herself. Chances are most of you don't recall hearing her name there either. Where you might recall hearing about her though is through her involvement with the sex slavery cult NXIVM, which was bankrolled to the tune of tens of millions of dollars by Sara and her younger sister Clare, who both became involved with the cult in the early oughts.
The two sisters were heavily involved with NXIVM, its leader Keith Raniere and its Executive Success Programs (ESP) from their early 20's on. Not only as members and funders but operationally. From what I gather, it was Sara Bronfman who brought Basit Igtet into the NXIVM fold and the two were dating, engaged and later married durin the period when Hagin and CCG were doing work for Igtet.
