DML News brings you the following information from Axios:

Trump’s deputy National Security Adviser Ricky Waddell will leave the White House, according to two sources briefed on the decision. New National Security Adviser John Bolton wants to bring his own person in, and Waddell was H.R. McMaster’s hand-picked deputy.

Why this matters: Bolton is making wholesale changes at the NSC, bringing in his own people and clearing out McMaster’s. Senior NSC officials Nadia Schadlow, who authored the Trump administration’s National Security Strategy, and Michael Anton, who led the NSC’s strategic communications, have already resigned in anticipation of likely being pushed out under Bolton. More NSC departures are expected soon.

The article goes on to state the following:

White House sources have a high regard for Waddell, a Major General in the United States Army Reserve, who has run the daily operations of the NSC since last May. It’s not clear when his last day in the White House will be.
