  1. I can’t believe he was still on the job. It’s apparently impossible to find an honest lawyer within a hundred miles of DC.

  2. “Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) accused the president of trying to diminish the independence of the intelligence community.”

    Independent of what?

    The government?

    Oversight by the Executive branch, which it is a part of? Then who are they accountable to, anyone?

    Who gave them this independence and why?

  4. The IG apparently changed the rules to allow second hand hearsay evidence be used for whistleblowing. And then apparently couldn’t properly justify why it was changed or even accurately state when the change was made??

    I think he deserved to be fired. The DNC can pick him up.

  7. “This is to advise that I am exercising my power as President to remove from office the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, effective 30 days from today,” Trump said in the letter.

    Why 30 days? If you find a cancerous lump, you want it out NOW!
