Senior diplomatic security official removed from Afghanistan role after declaring 'death of America' when Trump lost election

By Kylie Atwood, CNN

Updated 8:14 AM ET, Thu March 4, 2021

Washington (CNN)The top State Department diplomatic security official in Afghanistan was removed from his role for declaring the "death of America" and making racist comments about Kamala Harris in a post on his Facebook page when President Donald Trump lost November's presidential election, according to four sources familiar with the matter.

"Sad day in American history. A fraudulent election that ushered in a senile idiot and a woman that claims to be black, but she's not," Nick Sabruno wrote in a post reviewed by CNN. "Your (sic) witnessing the death of America as we know it and just standby as all our freedoms are eroded."

After he learned about the post, the acting US ambassador in Afghanistan, Ross Wilson, declared that he had lost confidence in Sabruno and he was sent back to Washington, according to the sources familiar with the matter.

He still works at the State Department but is not currently assigned to a specific role or office, three sources familiar with the matter said.

It's about what I'd have expected. They all have a certain "look" about them that says "I'm crazy" or "I can't think for myself" or "My momma dropped me on my head too many times" or "I think my daddy might also be my brother".

and got into the diplomatic corp—or maybe not if he was a trump admin appointed. If that was the case, he's just the type they wanted as he's also seems to be a racist.

3. So how did that kind of an idiot get that important and sensitive a job?

How do these people not understand the rules that govern their lives? How do they not get what first amendment rights really cover? Actions have consequences. Did he really think his Facebook statement was a good thing for a government agent to do? It's like someone or something sucks the intelligence out of these people and then sends them out to screw things up.

"poster child for what is not acceptable here" in the office of "we'll track every last one of you broken children down and remove you from positions requiring adults"?

I commend all the good actors who continue eliminating fools such as this from ANY position of responsibility in our government. THEY are doing god's work and she appreciates it.

14. Why is this fascist thug still sucking at the public teat?

Apart from the fact that he is a disgusting piece of work, he is also grammaticcaly challenged (as is whoever corrected only one of his errors). It is person "who", not person "that", the "your" rather than "you're" and "stand by" rather than "standby".

While he was in Afghanistan, Sabruno was in charge of overseeing the security of one of the US' most dangerous diplomatic missions.

45. He'll be fired, but it will take time.

Most federal employees enjoy a level of job protection not available to the typical non-government worker. In particular, in the case of "misconduct," the employee still must be given 30 days notice before he/she can be terminated. And where the termination is performance-related, there may be an additional due process-related delay before termination. What constitutes "misconduct" can be hazy at times -- criminal behavior clearly meets the test, but his actions here don't appear to be criminal, so it's arguable that he's entitled to the pre-termination due process given to employees being fired for performance related reasons.
