<< 14 days, 22 hours, 4 minutes to EDALT >>. … … … IG’s are the Congressional watchdogs that are given great autonomy to conduct investigations into waste or abuse of the executive branch agencies and leadership. Their autonomy has been respected by every prior president since the Inspector’s General offices were established. Three or four IG’s were summarily fired by the trump when there were rumors that they have been investigating irregularities of the trump, the trump’s political appointees and/or their agencies, or were tasked to review whether the federal funds allocated under the CARES act were being allocated in accordance with Congressional expectations. That IG was fired before the funds even arrived and kept the Congress in the dark regarding the funds that went from taxpayers to directly support the trump’s businesses, Kushner’s investments and numerous enterprises affiliated with the senior trumpublican party leaders who have enabled the trump. This is as unethical and wrong as the trump co-opting the DOJ to be his political enforcer by ignoring the purpose of the DOJ as an apolitical agency for the people, or as installing unqualified political operatives in the CDC director’s office to keep him quiet, to rewrite or suppress CDC directives based on the trump’s political preferences, and to suppress access to and release of scientific data needed to control and manage the evolving pandemic which the trump decided to just ignore. It is truly sad to have to add legal restraints due to the abuses of the trump who considers himself above the rules, norms and laws which he treats as just being annoying speed-bumps blocking the path to his satisfying his ever-increasing lust for power.
