Democrats announced that they are beginning an investigation into President Trumps firing of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick.
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel of New York and Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey made the announcement on Saturday, a day after Linicks removal. The lawmakers requested all records about Linicks firing from the White House, the State Department, and the State Department Office of Inspector General by next Friday.

Investigate what? He serves at the pleasure of the President and the President isnt pleased.
How many investigations?
End the witch hunts
As I’ve noted on two previous threads, the last person to hold the position of State Department IG was Howard Krongard, who had been appointed by George W. Bush, and served until January 15th, 2008. There was never a permanent IG for the State Department because Obama never nominated anyone for the position while Hillary was Secretary. This guy Linick wasnt nominated until Kerry took over. Hillary had free-reign without having to worry about anyone looking over her shoulder. And of course, the media could have cared less that Obama left that position vacant all that time. They only rant and rave when President Trump fires someone who deserves to be fired.
Tell ‘em to go to hell.
Buwhahaha....they havent learned anything.....trump has them running around like a cat with a laser pointer....
This will get the MSP to cover it for days in moral outrage.....Trump jabs....they duck....then BOOM comes the upper cut
These Democrats want nothing to do with the job they are tasked to do for the people of this nation. They only want to create busy work to appear as though they are doing something especially if it can be directed negatively towards PDJT.
The only good Democrat doesn’t exist anymore.
Omg, no one ever fired an IG before?
History in the making!
2014: 43 out of 74 IGs sign letter of complaint about obama
Bob Menendez, from New Jersey, YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING. Like asking the coyotes to watch the hens in the henhouse.
Trump knows something and this will magnify it. This is more of brier rabbit repeating please Mr Fox, dont throw me in that brier patch. Just please dont do that.
As president, isnt it Trumps choice of who works in these roles? They dont like it, then elect a different president.
I’m surprised they haven’t launched an investigation regarding the lightly scented hand sanitizer in the congressional restrooms.
Born and bred in the brier patch!!! Born and bred in the brier patch!!
Was it unprecedented when Obama replaced the person whos been there from the bush term?
Ya know what, two can play at this game..if ever God Forbid Biden becomes President..every decision Biden makes, every person he fires, every law he wants passed, I want Republicans to investigate him, and keep investigating him til he is impeached
In the minds of commies, you are ONLY allowed to do what they, and if you dont like it, drop dead
“You keep using that word...I don’t think it means what you think it means”
It would be inconceivable! :)
I seem to remember an investigation into corruption by former basketball player Kevin KJ Johnson. Obama called the IG incompetent and fired him. No black basketball player was going down on Obama’s watch!
They really should be more careful about asking questions they may not want answered.
