Attorney General William Barr defended United States President Donald Trump’s decision to fire the intelligence community Inspector General.

You serve at the pleasure of the President and if he feels like you aren't doing a good job he can fire you. By the Democrats own standards next time they get the white house, they can't fire anyone

You can argue all you want that the president can fire whoever he wants. He still did it for no good reason and that has political consequences. He fired someone for following the whistelblower statute. The IG will report any urgent concerns to the DNI who within 7 days SHALL produce the report to Congress. Maguire broke protocol and withheld the complaint. Have we actually ever seen the full complaint?
