Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My recollection of the time is that it was John Bolton who was instrumental in the disbanding of the team during his time as national security advisor. Whether he was acting independently or on instructions from Trump, I don't know, but the overall responsibility lies with Trump regardless. It was he who appointed a nutter like Bolton to the job.

The nutter Bolton [oops ... did I say nutter Steve Bannon?] was the instigator. Bolton got Bush "elected" through the US Supreme Court and dimple ballots in Florida after brother Jeb failed to ease George into the White House. Voter purge did the trick in the end.

"Bolton got Bush "elected" through the US Supreme Court and dimple ballots in Florida..." I thought those honors went to James Baker and John Roberts.

Multiple persons on every level from counting ballots to SOS Katherine Harris, Gov. Rick Scott to the Florida and U.S. Supreme Court. The purging of voters was done by former CIA cocaïne flights pilot Hank Ascher, reinvented as data processor and hired in 1998. Based in Boca Raton, DTS Technologies ... a subsidiary of ChoicePoint in Atlanta did the trick. Covered this issue @BooMan.

Florida recount ... on the ground Bolton's posse forced their way into the counting process.
