Mike Pompeo recommended Trump firing of State Department inspector general, White House says

Donald Trump fired the State Department's inspector general on the recommendation of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a White House official said Saturday.

Trump fired State Department Inspector General Steve Linick Friday night, notifying Congress of the decision in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Trump, who has targeted several government agency watchdogs in the past several weeks, told Congress he no longer had full confidence in Linick, but did not provide an explanation as to why.

"Secretary Pompeo recommended the move, and President Trump agreed," a White House official said.

Democratic lawmakers said the inspector general was investigating potential misconduct by Pompeo.

There's no excuse for people getting fired for doing their jobs, especially if the person being investigated can instigate the firing. If Pompeo had nothing to hide...
