“Congressional intent is clear that an expression of lost confidence, without further explanation, is not sufficient to fulfill the requirements of the statute,” the senators wrote in a letter Thursday. “This is in large part because Congress intended that inspectors general only be removed when there is clear evidence of wrongdoing or failure to perform the duties of the office, and not for reasons unrelated to their performance, to help preserve IG independence.”

Trump defended the firing of Atkinson last weekend, calling him a “total disgrace” over his handling of the whistleblower complaint, which detailed Trump’s conversations with Ukraine’s president, Politico reported. Atkinson was required by law to transmit the complaint to the House and Senate intelligence committees. The complaint led to Trump’s impeachment.

so apparently Trump is not complying with a 2008 law requiring Congressional Notification Prior to an IG being Fired

sounds like a good way for Congress to medal in the actions of the Executive ....

Maybe the courts need to get involved. Get an injunction on the firing until Trump can lay out his reasoning.
