White House, GOP Fight over Sizes of National Security Teams

Interesting development [1]:

A House Republican proposal that started out as an effort to address Pentagon complaints of West Wing micromanaging has quickly turned into a fight between Congress and the White House over the size of each other’s national security team.

House Armed Services Chairman Mac Thornberry plans to release a bill in the coming days to cut the White House’s National Security Council staff “well below” its current level. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Monday said he’s likely to include similar language in his version of the National Defense Authorization Act.
