DC swamp has dropped a couple of feet

Take a look at the number of politicians listed below who will not be seeking re-election in 2018.

Many leadership positions and household names are on this list. There are 34 Republicans and 15 Democrats who will or have stepped away from the DC swamp.

Take this list below and add to it the number of Department of Justice resignations and firings and you have the makings of some real swamp draining.

Of course there is much more to do within the Department of State and the intelligence agencies, but not bad for the first 18 months.
