In what critics say is basically a reprisal for “telling the truth,” President Trump has fired US Inspector General for the intelligence community Michael Atkinson - the man who first handled the complaint made by an anonymous CIA whistleblower that became the basis for Trump’s impeachment.
Well, let’s try and remember, that these folks all serve at the pleasure of the President - and, as we all know, this President finds no pleasure in the truth, or anyone who dares tell it, for that matter. Hell, “truthfulness” isn’t one of the characteristics Trump was even looking for in an Inspector General anyway.
Besides, Trump supporters aren’t concerned with the intelligence community’s truthful assessments anyway. They much prefer to wait for the latest QAnon drop for their information. Anyway, I suppose all this means that the departing Inspector General’s duties - will now be handed over to the man who seems to be popping up just about everywhere these days - Jared Kushner.
