Robert Costa recently discussed this development with James Kitfield, a contributing writer to POLITCO Magazine who recently wrote "Trump’s Generals Are Trying to Save the World. Starting With the White House.

Kitfield is also a senior fellow at the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress and a contributing writer at Atlantic Media. He recently wrote the new book “Twilight Warriors: The Soldiers, Spies and Special Agents Who are Revolutionizing the American Way of War.”
