Senate Republicans have asked Trump for explanations for firings of IGs, but it apparently didn’t come up today at their meeting per senators
Two Senate and House Dems launch investigation into Trump’s firing of State Department independent watchdog Steve Linick and ask White House, State and State IG’s office to “preserve all records related to the firing and turn information over to the committees” by May 22.
YET, GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT is shrinking. -- POTUS has fired 2 IGs and, if you believe reports, is planning on firing more. … THE ADMINISTRATION has routinely flouted subpoenas for appearances and documents. … SENATE REPUBLICANS have shrunk from checking the president.
