Democrats in Congress on Saturday launched an investigation into President Donald Trump's move to oust the State Department's internal watchdog, accusing the president of escalating his fight against any oversight of his administration.
Pelosi described Linick’s ousting as an acceleration of a quote "dangerous pattern of retaliation” from Trump.
The two Democrats said it was their understanding that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo personally recommended Linick's firing... because Linick quote "had opened an investigation into wrongdoing by Secretary Pompeo himself." The White House responded saying quote - “Secretary Pompeo recommended the move, and President Trump agreed.” Linick is the fourth inspector general fired by Trump since early April.
