    Trump Jong-Un Fires Intel IG Michael Atkinson

    President Trump, the authoritarian and vengeful President, true to form , settled his petty score in a cowardly way and fired yet another civil servant who dared to simply do his duty. Cowardly because he did it late on a Friday night and while we are all pre-occupied with the coronavirus crisis.

    Whether or not you are a Trump supporter, you must all see how this is bad for our freedom. We have a classic authoritarian, intolerant of the slightest dissent. Anyone who dares to do anything to hold this president accountable will be punished, anyone who speaks out.
    He is trying to scare everyone into unquestioning obedience under pain of death. Or in this case under pain of losing their jobs. This is how Kim Jong-Un or any other authoritarian leader operates. The only difference is the severity of the punishment.

    Michael Atkinson, is the IG who properly handled the whistle blower complaint and passed it to Congress.

    How could Trump possibly trust Atkinson after what he did?

    Michael Atkinson, is the IG who properly handled the whistle blower complaint and passed it to Congress.
    *Nunes, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, first penned a letter to Atkinson in September, requesting specific documents for investigation. Last month, Nunes sent another letter requesting documents that he claims are “well within this committee’s oversight responsibilities related to the Intelligence Community

    House Intelligence Committee Republicans are investigating Atkinson’s “unusual handling" of the whistleblower complaint that formed the basis of President Trump's impeachment.

    “The investigation is particularly focused on the guidelines that appeared on a whistleblower complaint submission form that was changed—after the submission of the whistleblower complaint—to eliminate language excluding hearsay information,” Nunes wrote Friday.*

    Maybe he didn't properly handle the whistleblower complaint.

    Awwww.....did Orange Man upset you?


    Atkinson was previously legal counsel for the DOJ-NSD during the stop-Trump tenure of John Carlin and Mary McCord. Atkinson was a participant in the weaponizing of the DOJ-NSD via FISA abuse, along with NSA database exploitation .


    Oh well, one less opportunity for the Demos to exploit. Now that must really tick Democrats and Leftists off.

    Atkinson is a coup-plotter and ought to be tried and executed if found guilty.

    Apparently the OP has confused a President with the King who ruled with a pen and a phone and hated America.


    "Those were puzzling assertions, given nearly nonstop scandals during Obama’s eight years in office involving the IRS; General Services Administration; Peace Corps; Secret Service; Veterans Administration; and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, not to mention the Clinton email-server scandal, the Benghazi scandal, and the 2016 Democratic National Committee email scandal.

    "For nearly eight years, the Obama administration sought to cover up serial wrongdoing by waging a veritable war against the watchdog inspectors general of various federal agencies.

    "In 2014, 47 of the nation’s 73 inspectors general signed a letter alleging that Obama had stonewalled their “ability to conduct our work thoroughly, independently, and in a timely manner.”

    Properly handled the fake whistleblower case? Is this satire?
