"The inspector general doesn't have to seek Pompeo's approval to approach the Hill with information,

especially if it is not classified:

snipped:

"Key committees on Capitol Hill were notified Tuesday that the State Department’s inspector general has requested to speak with them Wednesday “to discuss and provide staff with copies of documents related to the State Department and Ukraine,” according to a letter obtained by The Washington Post.

The offer by the office of Steve Linick, which operates mostly independently from the State Department and is responsible for investigating abuse and mismanagement, comes amid a standoff between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and House Democrats demanding documents and testimony on Ukraine-related matters for their impeachment inquiry.

Linick’s office “obtained the documents from the acting legal adviser of the Department of State,” the letter said. The inspector general doesn’t have to seek Pompeo’s approval to approach the Hill with information, especially if it is not classified."

2. "I am the WhistleBlower"

WE ALL ARE...

So glad that these folks are doing their job and feeling protected enough to stand up. We need to keep praising them and making sure they are truly protected, as they should be!
