By this point in time, we all know that President Donald Trump’s assertion that the swamp runs deep in the nation’s capital is much more than campaign rhetoric.
Election Assistance Commission chairman Matthew Masterson is being removed from his post by the White House and House Speaker Paul Ryan, according to a report from Reuters. Appointed to the commission in 2014 and serving as chairman since February, Masterson was expected to be appointed to a second four-year term.
The dismissal of Masterson comes as the debate over alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election rages on.
