President Trump has fired Deep State IOC Michael Atkinson, who made it possible for the whistleblower to bring false charges against President Trump.
Before Atkinson a whistleblower had to have proof that someone had committed a crime and secondly had to prove there even was a crime.
Atkinson will have thirty days to clear up any unfinished business before the door hits him where the sun don’t shine. Atkinson allowed the whistleblower complaint to move forward because he claimed the accusations were credible. Atkinson lied.
Democrats are screaming that Trump is seeking retribution. Damn right he is Live by the false accusation, die by the false accusation. The president must immediately pull his security clearance.
The president has notified Congress that he is removing the inspector general for the intelligence community, the official who helped make sure Congress got the Ukraine whistleblower complaint. The firing will take effect in 30 days, according to a letter obtained by NBC News.

SCOOP: Trump has fired Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community, who opposed then-DNI Maguire’s decision to withhold the whistleblower complaint that sparked the impeachment inquiry.

President Trump informed Congress by letter Friday he is removing the inspector general for the intelligence community, Michael Atkinson, effective thirty days from today. Trump said in the letter, “…it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as Inspectors General. That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”
Atkinson clashed with DNI Joseph Maguire’s decision to not forward to Congress a Ukraine whistleblower complaint in the summer of 2019, with Atkinson sending to Congress himself. The complaint that ultimately led to the impeachment of President Trump by the House of Representatives. Trump was subsequently acquitted by the Senate in February.
UPDATE: To this day Speaker Pelosi and Adam Schiff still won’t release transcripts Atkinson’s secret basement testimony that exonerated President Trump and indict the alleged whistleblower of perjury!
