BUSTED: Fired IG Testifies He Told 3 Aides He Was Investigating Pompeo When He Was Fired

Mike Pompeo might actually be as big a liar as Donald Trump and that’s quite an achievement. Steve Linick, the inspector general who was most recently fired by Trump, testified before Congress that before he was fired he had dialogue with three of Pompeo’s aides and indicated that he was investigating Pompeo’s use of resources — and then he got the ax, and Pompeo said he didn’t know anything about the pending investigations. Corrupt, much? The revelation potentially undercuts Pompeo’s public claim to have been unaware that Linick was looking into that issue when he asked Trump to fire Linick. Pompeo has said he had “no sense of what investigations were taking place inside the Inspector General’s Office.” — Josh Lederman (@JoshNBCNews) June 4, 2020 Linick also told Congress that before he was fired, he’d submitted a formal document request for records related to Pompeo and his wife’s use of resources. — Josh Lederman (@JoshNBCNews) June 4, 2020 West Point grads like Pompeo are supposed to have character, integrity and honor. If he ever had those qualities, and I don’t know one way or the other, he certainly ditched them in service to Donald Trump. I guess the siren call of power is too enticing for some people to resist and overrides all over considerations.
