On Conflicts of Interest #32, Kyle covers the recent personnel changes at the Pentagon. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was expected to resign but was first fired by Trump. Other staff leaving their post includes the acting Secretary for policy. The changes are fueling conspiracy in the anti-Trump crowd.

The US announced a massive $23 billion weapon sales to the UAE. The sales include F-35s, armed drones, and bombs.
