DOD Inspector General Opens Probe Into Alleged Retaliation By Obama Holdover
Daily Caller ^ | 11/30/2017 | Richard Pollock

Posted on 12/01/2017 7:38:04 AM PST by Cheerio

The Pentagon’s Inspector General has launched a preliminary investigation into charges that James H. Baker, the director of the Defense Department’s Office of Net Assessment (ONA), is retaliating against a whistleblower who warned of “rigged” contracts to outside consultants, The Daily Caller News Foundation has confirmed.

TheDCNF verified through two independent sources that the acting IG, Glenn A. Fine, initiated a formal “Whistleblower Reprisal Investigation” Sept. 28 to look into allegations that Baker unleashed various reprisals against Adam Lovinger, a senior ONA official. Lovinger warned about potential sweetheart deals to politically-connected outside contractors, including one with a woman Chelsea Clinton has referred to as her “best friend.”

The IG is investigating Baker’s actions under Presidential Policy Directive-19, an October 2012 directive designed to protect members of the intelligence community who report waste, fraud and abuse. The directive pointedly states that it “prohibits retaliation against employees for reporting waste, fraud, and abuse.”

" Lovinger warned about potential sweetheart deals to politically-connected outside contractors, including one with a woman Chelsea Clinton has referred to as her “best friend.”

In a short on details article, I find it incredibly odd to have a quotation as that above. Something very, very wicked is this way coming for the Clintons. Someone is drip, drip, dripping Clintonista conduct every day, just waiting for the public to have their epiphany.

Is there no ‘anonymous’ method to being a whistleblower?

These people need protection!

There must be some way to stop these embedded fifth columns from taking retaliation!.........................

The Baker guy needs to be prosecuted, go to jail, and have all his assets seized.
