State Department watchdog critical of Trump moves fired

E-mail Print PDF
State Dep. watchdog firedThe Trump administration fired the State Department's watchdog late Friday, ousting a career investigator who had uncovered alleged political bias at the agency.

The decision — made quietly and without explanation — was the latest in a series of purges the White House has undertaken in recent months to remove government overseers who are charged with reporting on government malfeasance and corruption.

In Friday's move, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo fired the agency's inspector general, Steve Linick, who was appointed in 2013 during the Obama administration after serving other senior roles in the U.S. government.
