Trump’s firing of IG’s a ’threat to accountable democracy’, says Romney

Sen. Mitt Romney denounced President Trump’s firings of several inspector generals as a ’threat to accountable democracy’. ’Doing so without good cause chills the independence essential to their purpose. It is a threat to accountable democracy and a fissure in the constitutional balance of power’, Romney tweeted. A day earlier Trump fired State Department’s inspector general Steve Linick.

How is firing unelected officials unrelated to the election process a threat to democracy? Especially if everyone knows he did it.

Romney showing his back-stabbing skills, lack of principles, and complete lack of leadership. What a joke, should be in the House not the Senate. Definitely not POTUS material.

Mitt Romney, sold out the United States to the Chinese Communist Party. Time for him and his fellow Rob-Public-Wecans to pay the piper.

I don't have to read a story or anything about this, I know without reading anything that whatever Roment wants I want the opposite. It's RDS but that man is a stooge. Pierre delecto what an absolute ultra lame-o.

Why? Are they not going to hire any more inspectors? Is he planning on shutting down the entire office so no more investigations can take place? What nonsense. Can the people of Utah please wake up and get this deep state, lifeterm loving fool out of office already.

Most people see through trump’s criminal activities and to protect them from doing any prison time they will turn on him quicker then New York second. In my opinion.
