Michael Atkinson did exactly what he was supposed to as Inspector General: when he determined that the Ukraine whistleblower’s complaint was credible, he took it to Congress. But President Trump just had him fired over it.

The American people will not sit quietly by as Trump punishes Atkinson, a dedicated public servant, in childish retaliation.

With a blank check from the Senate's sham impeachment trial in hand, Donald Trump is out for revenge. He's continuing his rampage against anyone who put their loyalty to the country ahead of their loyalty to him. 

His latest target? Michael Atkinson, the former intelligence community Inspector General who faithfully upheld his oversight duties -- when he notified Congress of the anonymous whistleblower complaint that alleged Trump withheld security aid from Ukraine in exchange for dirt on Joe Biden.

Atkinson did this country a great service. He felt, in his words, that he was just doing what he was supposed to as "an independent and impartial inspector general." Now, that honorable act has cost him his job, his career, and his privacy. 

Atkinson needs to know that Americans are thankful for his courage -- and that Trump's attacks can't change the important truth that he helped to uncover. 

And the White House must be met with a nationwide outcry -- thousands and thousands of us speaking out and condemning Trump's abhorrent decision to punish Atkinson for his patriotism.
