While it was certainly inappropriate, among other things, I was not necessarily surprised that the Trump regime did not inform congressional leaders before conducting the raid to kill former ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, but another party much closer to Trump was also not informed.
NBC News reports that Trump's own damn chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was kept out of the loop.
Mulvaney was at home in South Carolina when President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday night that “Something very big has just happened!” He was briefed on the raid that night, officials said. [...]
Andrew Card, former President George W. Bush’s longtime chief of staff, said the exclusion of Mulvaney from a moment of such magnitude in the presidency is difficult to grasp because the chief of staff typically would be in national security meetings leading up to it and tasked with coordinating with other top officials on everything from a communications strategy to a plan in case the raid failed.
“I’m baffled by it,” Card said. “It’s hard for me to imagine."
Recent reports that Trump has been shopping for replacements for Mulvaney just gained a lot weight, I'd say.
