Intel Watchdog Michael Atkinson Is FIRED!

5

The intelligence chief watchdog, who allowed the secret whistleblower to file a report of second- and third-hand information as a legitimate complaint, was fired Friday. He even characterized it as ‘urgent.” It was nothing but hearsay and the whistleblower never came forward.

The President gave him his walking papers.

Trump formally notified the Senate and House Intelligence Committees of his intention to fire Atkinson, to take effect 30 days from Friday.

“This is to advise that I am exercising my power as president to remove from office the inspector general of the intelligence community, effective 30 days from today,” the president wrote.

Trump said in the letter that he “no longer” has the fullest confidence in Atkinson. “As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as president, have the power of appointment, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as inspectors general,” he wrote.

“That is no longer the case with regard to this inspector general.”

Trump added that he would be submitting a new nominee for the position to the Senate “at a later date.”

The recent report of FISA warrant abuse and the abusive process used in the filing of the whistleblower’s complaint is enough.

DEMOCRATS ARE ANGRY AGAIN

Democrats immediately blasted the move as an abuse of power at a dangerous time for the United States.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, called Atkinson’s firing “unconscionable.”

Adam Schiff characterized the move as retaliation.

Schumer portrayed Atkinson as speaking truth to power.

The President can fire anyone he wants and he couldn’t possibly have confidence in Mr. Atkinson.

  1. This OUTLANDISH response of the “DemWITZ” clearly reveals that these same DemWITZ” didn’t care at all, as to Atkinson’s sloppy work concerning the “CON ARTIST” “wistleblower”; (who Atkinson allowed to put on the ‘COLLUSION SHOW”), AND he allowed…!

    These same “DemWITZ” to maneuver to “…get the goods on {TRUMP’S call to Ukraine} that was SOOoooo questionable)…”; AND!

    Then he muffed the ENTIRE operation…(a FACT brought out during the “IMPEACHMENT HOAX”)…

    SOooo…WHY SHOULDN’T Atkinson be fired???…

    BTW!!…That’s the question MANY of us “CITIZENS” have been asking ourselves for NEARLY a year now…SO we’re GLAD that POTUS FINALLY booted the {questionably unloyal — & DEFINITELY sloppy} Atkinson…

    AND! “SHIFTY” Shiff needs to SHUT THE F&*K UP, & get BUSY SENDING THOSE PHONE RECORDS to JUDICIAL WATCH lawyers!!! You lying cheat!!!

  2. Definitely called for, this IG wasn’t interested in due process. And his use of hearsay evidence was very telling.

  3. Took POTUS 45 three years to can this domestic communist ! Why ? Answer: Atkinson is part of the Clinton/soetoro cabal.

    In the meantime I am STILL waiting for POTUS 45 to “Lock her up !” Believe me….I am NOT holding my breath.

  4. Michael Atkinson (formerly IC IG) should have been fired as soon as it was revealed that he secretly changed the rules for being allowed to be classified as a whistleblower after an unqualified 3rd person account was used to qualify for whistleblower status. And that he did so without telling the intel community. Atkinson, intentionally or not, led the impeachment sham with his secret rule changes.
