Former Defense Secretary James Mattis went on record Tuesday to defend Glenn Fine, the Pentagon inspector general relieved of his duties by President Trump earlier in the day.
Mr. Fine is a public servant in the finest tradition of honest. Competent governance, Mattis wrote in an email to Yahoo News. In my years of extensive engagement with him as our Department of Defenses acting Inspector General, he proved to be a leader whose personal and managerial integrity were always of the highest order.
Mattis, 69, a retired U.S. Marine Corps general, served as defense secretary from January 2017 to January 2019 resigning after the president announced plans to pull U.S. troops from Syria.

Thats the problem. We prefer honest people who wont put party over country.
It doesn’t matter if he was a fine man, if he wasn’t the best one for getting the job done.
“Public servant “
What a crock. Nothing but a nasty swamp dweller sucking off of taxpayers too long.
I never liked Mattis. He always sounded like he was sucking on something.
FO Mattis. You didn’t give a # about the Haditha Marines
Mattis tried to undercut POTUS while serving & bad mouthed him after he was fired/resigned. Why would his recommendation of Fine be convincing or germane?
Mattis was sold as a hero but he was an arrogant, passive aggressive backbiter. Possibly he was a good soldier brought down by success and the wrong take on politics.
Jimmi Carter. Fine man. Lousy president.
Which mechanic would you take your car to:
Bill - Devoted to one wife, sunday school teacher, constant returns on his repairs.
Joe - heavy drinker, sleeps around on his wife constantly, reputation for the most solid mechanic work in the state.
I go with Joe. I’m not looking for a husband. I’m looking for a mechanic.
It don’t mean nuttin...
Mattis and all of them are part of the military-industrial-political complex.
Jimmi Carter. Fine man.
I think he’s fooled a lot of people into thinking he’s a fine man. I’m not sure if he’s evil or just has bad wiring in his brain.
Any military officer who defends the Marxism of the last regime is also a Marxist and the enemy of America
Public servant, my ASS!
go tell it to the world court...globalist weakling
Well maybe he is too damn slow. That has been the complaint.
Tame Dog Mattis spent more time at Defense thinking he was a Secretary of State than he was a Secretary of Defense. Fortunately, Trump saw through his undercutting him and fortunately canned him before it got critical.
He not longer holds the “confidence of the President”, just like you.
I go with Joe. Im not looking for a husband. Im looking for a mechanic.
Yep - I’ll take the jerk ER doctor over bedside manner ER doctor every time.
How many sailors and marines did Obama get killed? Swamp creature Mattis literally could not have cared less about that. He never in a million years would have undermined Democrats like this. I am disgusted.
There sure are a lot of inspectors general in the Fed govt. They call them watchdogs, but they function more like fleas.
Sour Grapes Mattis.
