Dem House Rep: Fired IG Was Also Investigating Trump

Courthouse News reports:

Amplifying scrutiny on the recent firing of the State Department inspector general, one lawmaker revealed today that Steve Linick had been investigating not only Secretary Mike Pompeo but President Donald Trump as well.

“I’ve learned there may be another reason for IG Linick’s firing,” Representative Eliot Engel tweeted this afternoon.

“His office was investigating — at my request — Trump’s phony emergency declaration so he could send Saudi Arabia weapons. We don’t have the full picture yet, but it’s troubling that Sec Pompeo wanted Linick pushed out.”
