Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, expressed his fear that multiple high-level ousters within the Department of Homeland Security could lead to serious negative consequences.
His remarks came amid reports that both Kirstjen Nielsen, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, and Randolph Alles, director of the U.S. Secret Service, are on their way out.
With rumors swirling of other DHS officials President Donald Trump would like to replace, Grassley said he was “very, very concerned” about the situation.
“The president has to have some stability and particularly with the number one issue that he’s made for his campaign, throughout his two and a half years of presidency,” the senator said. “He’s pulling the rug out from the very people that are trying to help him accomplish his goal.”
