Flyers acquire Cam Atkinson from Blue Jackets for Jakub Voracek
Atkinson was Mr. Columbus. He loved it there, stuck up for the city, invested in a local business. This is a big move for the Blue Jackets in a lot of ways.
A powerful message from Inspector Gen. Atkinson after his retaliatory firing: “The American people deserve an honest and effective government. They are counting on you to use authorized channels to bravely speak up... “Please do not allow recent events to silence your voices.”
Trump’s dead of night decision to fire ICIG Michael Atkinson is another blatant attempt to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing. It puts our country and national security at even greater risk.
The late-night firing of Inspector General Atkinson is a brazen act against a patriotic public servant who has honorably performed his duty to protect the Constitution and our national security, as required by the law and by his oath.
