Report: Trump Administration Has Removed 70 Obama Holdovers at NSC ... Is 'Anonymous' Official in the Mix?

The Trump administration has removed 70 Obama holdovers at the National Security Council (NSC), Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard reported on Monday.
President Trump and National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien have removed 70 Obama holdovers from the NSC, which previously boasted a staff of roughly 200 people, according to the Washington Examiner:
The @WHNSC is how @POTUS executes foreign policy & national security.

It's critical that NSC staff are faithful to the President's policies. If they aren't, they need to go.@realDonaldTrump doesn't need a bloated NSC. He needs an effective NSC.

The news follows Saturday’s CNN report, which indicated “major cuts” to NSC staff in the coming days, citing “two sources familiar with the matter.”
It comes days after the contentious impeachment battle on Capitol Hill — a battle ignited by a complaint from a so-called “whistleblower.” The “whistleblower’s” complaint, regarding Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, sparked the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry, which ultimately ended in a full acquittal.
