I don’t know what you may think, but to me I think it’s a warning sign coming from the United States Attorney General to every Whistleblower out there to be careful and not break protocols.
During an interview on FOX news with FOX news host Laura Ingraham, the United States Attorney General made it known that Trump firing Atkinson was the right thing to do. He stated that Atkinson broke protocol when he ran to Congress with the whistleblower complaint rather than letting the executive branch determine whether there was a problem.
“I think the President did the right thing in removing Atkinson,” Barr said explaining that the whistleblower statute only gave Atkinson jurisdiction over wrongdoing by intelligence people.
“Atkinson tried to turn it into a commission to explore anything in the government and immediately report it to Congress without letting the executive branch look at it and determine whether there was any problem,”
But House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff and House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler are frowning at the Attorney General’s comments and are calling for an investigation by the DOJ Inspector General.
According to Gateway Pundit:
Nadler and Schiff on Monday in a 4-page letter to DOJ IG Horowitz demanded Barr’s statements be investigated to see whether he “violated applicable DOJ policies and rules of professional conduct.”
“Public confidence in our system of justice depends on the integrity, fairness, and impartiality of DOJ’s leadership. It is, therefore, imperative that the attorney general be held to the same high standard expected of all Department personnel, particularly in matters involving the President’s own interests,” Nadler and Schiff wrote.
