In response to the report, retired Major General Paul D. Eaton, senior adviser to VoteVets said:

 

“If reports are true that Donald Trump has asked our top nuclear security people to leave their posts on January 20th, without nominating their replacements, or scheduling their confirmation hearings, it would be negligence and malfeasance in office of the highest order.”
