“In an extraordinary admission during a press conference Saturday, Trump indicated that he fired Atkinson as retaliation for the watchdog’s role informing Congress of a whistleblower report detailing Trump’s effort last year to coerce Ukraine into producing dirt on his political opponents. “He took a fake report and he brought it to Congress,” Trump said, ignoring the reality that the complaint was shown to be accurate by a slew of witnesses who testified before the House of Representatives, and that Atkinson was legally required to inform lawmakers of its existence. At least one congressional committee is looking into whether Atkinson’s ouster, in addition to addressing Trump’s craving for revenge, also aimed to thwart ongoing probes by the IG’s office. “ I don’t care if you are a lefty or righty, we all should be worried when our politicians remove watchdogs. Especially when they remove four of them in the span of a few months. This is abhorrent. It was bad when Obama removed one, it is very bad now that Trump has removed four. There needs to be a law passed to prevent the prez from literally being able to remove IGs for whaireason they want.
