Skip to comments.Grassley halts Trump nominees, demands answers on inspector general firings
Posted on 06/06/2020 10:09:20 AM PDT by conservative98
Sen. Chuck Grassley has moved to halt consideration on two Trump administration nominees until the White House offers more information about why it fired two inspectors general.
The hold from Grassley will indefinitely block confirmation of Christopher Miller as National Counterterrorism Center director and Marshall Billingslea as undersecretary of state for arms control and international security.
Congress has made it clear that should the president find reason to fire an inspector general, there ought to be a good reason for it, said the Iowa Republican, who added that it was important Americans not be left speculating whether political or self-interests are to blame. Thats not good for the presidency or government accountability.

If that person is an Obama holdover....that is the best reason!
Grassley represented parts of Butler County in the Iowa House of Representatives from 1959 to 1975. He then served in the United States House of Representatives from 1975 to 1981. - wikipedia
I’m sorry but lock Grassley up in an old folks home. He’s been in office since 1959.
Gee how many IG’s did Obongo and Clinton fire without cause?
61 years...your run is over.
What to these two nominees have to do with the fired IGs???
He has been in office since I was a year old. I am semi retired now.
He needs to be put on an ice floe and pushed out to sea.
The rat runs deep in the GOP. I dont trust a single Republican in the House or Senate.
He has become a worthless POS who probably will soon follow Creepy Uncle Joe into a nursing home. And not as a visitor.
The deep state in these people comes out at different times.
So give him the reasons, in all their detail. Surely, somebody in this administration is smart enough to write it up.
Now, where are all the Freepers who were defending Chuckie boy here as “a true conservative” and “one of the good guys?”
Atkinson should be easy enough to explain. I don’t know the details of the other guy.
Why doesn’t Trump pick up the phone and chat with Grassley, who has shown himself to be reasonable in many areas before.
But that will be wasted time better spent elsewhere and where was Grassley when Obama fired everyone?
What does one thing have to do with the other?
Grassley is a part of the establishment that doesn’t want President Trump to succeed again. In essence, they are afraid of the American people.
Grassley halts Trump nominees.
Will we even notice the difference. The clowns in the Senate have been doing a lousy job on approving nominees (with few exceptions) since Trump was elected.
Congress has made it clear that should the president find reason to fire an inspector general, there ought to be a good reason for it, said the Iowa RepublicanWell, thanks for making it crystal-clear that you are on the side of the Democratic Congress, Mr. (Gr)assley.
Grassley needs to get a grip on reality.
With a record that long...you know the Deep State has lots on him.....notice how all there supposedly good guys are turning on Trump??......
I expect Barr and Durham to fold soon....They hold the Keys to the Treasonous coup...
