House Intelligence Cmte. Chairman Schiff tells @AliVelshi President Trump's firing of the Intelligence Community Inspector General disregards a statue that requires Congress to be given 30 days notice before removing an Inspector General from office.
@RepAdamSchiff tells @AliVelshi that Donald Trump’s late-Friday-night firing of the Inspector General who flagged the whistleblower complaint to Congress is the president “retaliating against the people that are on his enemies list.”
Former DNI James Clapper says the firing of the intelligence community watchdog who told Congress about whistleblower complaint that led to President Trump's impeachment, is a "bad message to the intelligence community if you care about its independence and objectivity."
President Donald Trump on Friday fired Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, who had told Congress about the whistleblower complaint that led to Trump’s impeachment.
I say this to the President, and his defenders in Congress: You may think it’s okay how Trump and his associates interacted with Russians during the campaign. I don’t. I think it’s immoral. I think it’s unethical. I think it’s unpatriotic. And yes, I think it’s corrupt.
Why isn’t Congressman Adam Schiff being brought up on charges for fraudulently making up a statement and reading it to Congress as if this statement, which was very dishonest and bad for me, was directly made by the President of the United States? This should never be allowed!
