Amidst growing chaos in Washington over President Donald Trump's withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria and a looming government shutdown, the President announced via Twitter that Secretary of Defense James Mattis would be leaving the Trump administration.

While the President made the distinction that Secretary Mattis retired, his resignation letter paints a different picture.

The letter indicated that the decision wasn't a retirement at all, but an apparently self-imposed removal, in which Secretary Mattis told the President that he deserved a Secretary of Defense whose views were more aligned with his own. The startling letter even gave Republican Senator Marco Rubio (FL) pause.

Mattis—whose foreign policy and military experience spans decades—was seen as a safeguard against a mercurial President whose diplomatic decisions slough precedent and procedure.

Now, attorney George Conway (husband to Presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway) is pointing out a chilling aspect of Mattis's resignation letter.

Notably, the letter doesn't include even standard cordial praise for the President, bolstering the fear that Mattis's decades of experience have been ignored.

What Mattis didn't say spoke volumes to Americans watching with dread.

Without Mattis to advise the President, Americans are becoming fearful.

And that was just the beginning.The incessant exits of Trump officials have been a running joke since shortly after his inauguration, but a position as vital as the Secretary of Defense being vacated is sending alarm bells throughout the country.

Some are imploring Vice President Mike Pence and remaining cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment and remove Trump from office.

At this point, it's unlikely that the 25th Amendment would be invoked. The nation will have to find a way to protect itself.
