Gizmodo Retracts Claim Trump Fired Officials in Charge of Nuclear Arsenal

Media outlet Gizmodo retracted claims late Monday that President-elect Donald Trump “dismissed the people in charge of maintaining our nuclear arsenal.”

In the original report, Gizmodo alleged the president-elect’s transition team ordered both the head of the National Nuclear Security Administration and his deputy Friday “to clean out their desks” prior to Trump’s inauguration.

“The NNSA is the $12 billion-a-year agency that ‘maintains and enhances the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile,'” Gizmodo writes.

“As far as I can tell, this is unprecedented—January 20 will mark the first time in the NNSA’s 17-year history that it will exist wholly without its appointed leadership.”

The story immediately stirred outrage among Trump’s fiercest critics, who saw the shocking news as further validation of their worst fears.

But shortly after 11PM, Gizmodo added a correction to the bottom of the article that reversed the story’s entire premise.
