The White House has fired Steve Goldstein, the Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, after contradicting the account of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s dismissal. 

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced he was replacing Rex Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State. In addition, the President revealed Gina Haspel has been selected to replace Pompeo at the CIA.

“Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!” Trump tweeted.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, there have been rumblings Tillerson was on the way out for several months now.
