KOMMONSENTSJANE – OUTGOING OIG ATKINSON WAS PART OF THE OBAMA SWAMP.

The biggest mistake our President made when he entered the White House was not eviscerating all of the Obama employees.  Why is that – because all of the Obama employees were weaponized to destroy him and his incoming administration.  Traps were set up which are still being used to work in that direction with the Schumer/Pelosi Democrats who are at the helm of the weaponization.

Not until AG Barr does the job he was hired to do and that is to bring out all of the crimes the Obama/Democrats committed will this be cleared up.  It will only continue because the Democrats are still the SWAMP.

This outgoing inspector general, Michael Atkinson, was only a part of the SWAMP and is a disgrace to our country.  He should be glad he is not going to jail.

Outgoing inspector general says Trump fired him for carrying out his ‘legal obligations’

Michael Atkinson, the outgoing intelligence community inspector general fired by President Trump on Friday, says he believes the president dismissed him because of his commitment to his duty as an impartial watchdog.

“It is hard not to think that the President’s loss of confidence in me derives from my having faithfully discharged my legal obligations as an independent and impartial Inspector General, and from my commitment to continue to do so,” Atkinson said in a statement released Sunday night that was obtained by several news outlets and shared on social media.

Trump fired Atkinson in a memo on Friday, explaining that he “no longer” has confidence in Atkinson’s ability to serve as a watchdog for the intelligence community. Atkinson had previously been the one to alert Congress of an “urgent” whistleblower complaint he received from an intelligence official concerned about Trump’s conversation’s with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The president on Saturday defended his decision to fire Atkinson, calling him a “disgrace” to inspectors general.

The resulting controversy led to Trump being impeached by the House but acquitted in the Senate, though one Republican senator, Mitt Romney (R-Utah) did vote to remove the president from office.

“This is to advise that I am exercising my power as President to remove from office the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, effective 30 days from today,” Trump wrote to leading members of the House and Senate Intelligence committees in a letter on Friday.

“As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as president, have the power of appointment, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as Inspectors General,” he added. “That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”

Atkinson has served in his current capacity since May of 2018.
