He spoke after his colleague, Susan Rice, the outgoing NSA, defended the current size of the NSC staff.
4/May explain rough start with NSC for 45 @POTUS:

“NSC staff had usurped the role of Cabinet agencies and forced decision-makers to spend enormous amounts of time serving NSC demands for information.”
5/ "Flynn offered an intriguing outline of what the NSC will do under President Trump. The NSC will serve four functions, ones that sound as if they will hew much more closely to the 1947 law that established the council."
