So this is possibly illegal bcz trump can’t fire people looking into him just to remove the investigation. This one wasn’t looking into trump but pompeo and pompeo was the one who suggested trump remove him. This government is so corrupt it’s saddening. I noticed a lot of confusion in the comments so hopefully this clears it up for everyone.

Using public servants for personal errands is one thing but using emergency powers to sell arms to Saudis a whole lot bigger

Typical Trump admin BS. They don’t think the rules apply to them. However, compared to other things they have done, this seems to be pretty harmless. My question is why fire the guy? God forbid he was doing his job.

It may be against the rules, but not enforceable. Question is: why would you fire someone whose job it is to investigate these things for... investigating these things. I’m sure the guy would rather be investigating something else and all you’re doing is making yourself look bad...

Funny how emperor Obama had government workers do personal menial tasks such shopping etc. Do why is this any different? Oh I forgot TDS the other pandemic. Unfortunately the cure for TDS can't happen until January 2021.

Funny, the first place I saw this reported was in the guardian, a British paper? Who leaked what was being investigated? Also, investigations never stop because of staff changes. Staff can be changed anytime by the president. This is just a distraction by media and the democrats... probably they don't want to report on the new horrible bill passed by the house, trying to restructure America

Isn't that the point of being a staffer? I can't see the illegalness of it.
