Jill Filipovic writes that Donald Trump demotion of Glenn Fine, the man tapped last month to independently oversee spending on the $2 trillion federal coronavirus stimulus package, shows the President “exploiting the pandemic to sack anyone who might point out just how terribly he has mangled the response.”
Trump just fired the Inspector General overseeing the relief package. And threatened another who reported PPE shortages.
Inspectors General are charged with doing independent oversight and exposing corruption.
Their job is to uncover the truth.
Exactly why Trump fears them. https://t.co/dDCnb227c8
