    It's good to spot them quick
    and get rid of them.

    Businessmen and Presidents
    know how to do that.

    Most other haven't had practice.
    ((( wouldn't understand )))

    "Speaking at a press conference Tuesday evening, Trump said he had never met Fine, but suggested he was a Democratic appointee. "We have a lot of IGs from the Obama era, and I left them, largely. But when we have reports of bias, and we have different things coming in.""

    Yeah, it was pretty clear that guy wasn't going to be President Trump's toady, so it's no surprise he got kicked out so quickly. :wave:

    Interesting...did he by any chance tell people what it was he did that "showed his true colors" or was it sufficient that President Trump said he did something? :scratch:
    tulc(is just curious)

    The article goes on to say:

    Democrats, however, had much harsher criticism for Trump’s decision.

    “This is a major problem that I’m very concerned about on a whole series of levels,” House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith, D-Wash., said on a call with reporters Tuesday.

    “I think we all understand President Trump, very clear and, frankly, on his first day in office: He wants people who are loyal to him. Who will praise him. First and foremost, that is what he wants in every position that he can control. He’s going to try to expand what he can control. Theoretically, IGs are not simply subject to the whims of presidents,” Smith said.

    “The president is not bringing talent to the challenge. He is bringing suck-ups to the challenge,” he added.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., accused Trump of corruptly using the global pandemic to punish honest government employees.

    “President Trump is abusing the coronavirus pandemic to eliminate honest and independent public servants because they are willing to speak truth to power and because he is so clearly afraid of strong oversight,” Schumer said in a statement after news broke of Fine’s removal.

    I have to smile
    thinking that maybe some
    think Biden could do better.

    More than a far stretch.

    Links? I'd say 8 or so different examples would do to show bias. :wave:

    Your blind sycophancy is noted. Jim Mattis thinks rather highly of him:
    Mattis rebukes Trump over removal of Pentagon inspector general

    In other news, apparently this guy is 5’9”, captained the Harvard varsity basketball team, and got drafted by the Spurs, but accepted a Rhodes Scholarship instead.

    Sounds like he knew how to stretch limited resources to fill a need; just the kind of guy you would want as an IG. To bad he got canned.
