In the government of President Donald Trump there is a new eddy to the office of the U.S. secret service coordinator. Trump announced on Thursday evening that the current Director of the counterterrorism center, Joseph Maguire, the office business leader from the age of 15. August will take it.

Shortly before, he had informed that the Deputy intelligence coordinator Sue Gordon to resign from their Posts. Media reports and a letter of Gordon’s to Trump does not suggest that she goes voluntarily.

The appointment of an Executive coordinator was necessary because the previous incumbent Dan Coats on may 15. August is out. He had located several times in the past in terms of content, with Trump on the cross. Several Democrats pointed to a provision for Gordon as Coats’ Deputy would have had to take the same Post at the Council table. A report by the “New York Times” that the White house wanted to avoid this but.

The “Washington Post” wrote that Trump had reservations, because he never had a close connection to Gordon. The transmitter CNN reported that some had doubts in the government, that the long-time CIA employee could lay the kind of political loyalty to Trump estimates. The Republican has been a long-standing difficult relationship with the secret services. Publicly, the President had commented in the past week, praised Gordon.

A hand-written note of Gordon’s on your letter of resignation to Trump suggested, however, that it is not their decision was to go. The step was an “act of respect and Patriotism, not by preference,” she wrote there. “You should have your Team.”

The Director of the intelligence services has the task to coordinate the various intelligence services of the USA. Coats had to post held the top since in March 2017. Since then, he has supplied himself with Trump several public disagreements. So, the secret service coordinator, said in January that Iran was working according to his assessment, at the moment of nuclear weapons. The President disagreed and found the services cluelessness.

Originally, Trump had intended as the successor to the Coats of the Republican members John Ratcliffe, who is regarded as loyal follower of the President. Ratcliffe had decided but in the face of “unfair” media reports of this, from the nomination process to withdraw, wrote Trump recently on Twitter.

With the Democrats, Gordon’s withdrawal resulted in a lack of understanding. The Deputy Adam Schiff, said that Coats’ and Gordon is leaving “a devastating loss” for the intelligence services and their employees.

Trump praised Gordon on Thursday evening. He had great respect for you, he wrote on Twitter. Also the new business intelligence coordinator Maguires he praised. His military career was long and excellent. “I have no doubt that he will do a great Job!”, added Trump.
