State Department Inspector General and Deep State hack Steve Linick was fired on Friday night. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo fired the anti-Trump Obama holdover. Linick served as State Department IG since 2013
Linick played a role in the faux impeachment of President Trump over Ukraine.
Linick requested an urgent meeting with Congressional Democrat staffers. During the meeting Linick handed over documents related to the Trump administration and Ukraine. The entire impeachment was a scam to divert attention away from the Biden Crime Family and Hunter Bidens pay-for-play with Burisma Holdings.
Linick was an anti-Trump hack who should have been removed months ago. CNBC reported His office had issued several reports critical of the departments handling of personnel matters, including accusing some of President Donald Trumps appointees of retaliating against career officials.
Linick will replaced by Stephen Akard, a former career foreign service officer who has close ties to Vice President Mike Pence, said the official, who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Akard currently runs the departments Office of Foreign Missions.

50,000 to go
You must think tv shows and real life are the same... tsk. Tsk...
I disagree with The Gateway Pundit’s given reason for the Democrat’s fraudulent Ukraine impeachment effort. The reason the Democrats are trying to remove Trump from office is not about the Bidens, it’s about Bill Barr and John Durham. Not only is the Deep State intelligence apparatus apoplectic about Durham’s investigation, both the Democrats and the media have one hell of a lot to lose slso.
From the Democrat’s perspective, they know they could be in the tall weeds for quite some time just as the Republican Party was after Nixon’s impeachment. They were also involved heavily in the Russian collusion hoax and a lot of them could go down pretty hard both in terms of the law and public opinion. How many felonies do you think were committed by Schiff-head and other functionaries within the Democratic Party who were leaking classified information to media types? And they know when a few people go down and start talking to save their asses, all bets are off on who they’re going to tell on.
Lastly, the media has one hell of a lot to lose also as they’ve been covering for the Democrats and lying to the American people about the biggest political scandal in the history of the republic for nearly 4 years.
On Thursday, MSN and the New York Post actually published an article from National Review titled “No, Obamagate Is Not a Hoax”...so there is some movement in our direction... albiet a baby step. I do not, however, expect NBC affiliates and CNN to cover it until they are dragged kicking and screaming into it because how vested in the scandals they are, but have little doubt that ABC and CBS will eventually put their finger to the wind and realize they have few choices but to cover it and may actually see it as an opportunity to gain competitive advantage over NBC and MSNBC who have gone completely to the dark side.
Anyway, the Ukraine impeachment fiasco was not about the Bidens, it was about frightened slimeballs trying to save their asses by removing Trump and discrediting or forcing out Barr and Durham.
Obama holdovers should all have been fired on day one.
This is a win.
GWB kept Clinton-holdover George Tenet. What harm came of that?
“Linick was an anti-Trump hack who should have been removed months ago.”
About friggin time they cast out these criminals its been almost 4 years
Good Freaking Grief!! WTF took SO long????
It was about ALL those things!!
Yep, in every office of he Executive Branch, the order should have gone out on the afternoon of Jan 20, 2017: Every person hired between Jan 20th 2009 and noon today will be released at the end of this business day. Signed, Donald J Trump, President of the United States.
Trump had no political allies when he was elected. He had to use what was available at the time. I know he has superpowers but he had other things to do. You know, like the economy, the wall, the Iran deal, the climate change debacle.
I would love to see some of you here just try to do what he has done. Armchair generals are always “right”. Wrong.
“GWB kept Clinton-holdover George Tenet. What harm came of that?”
They were both Deep-State operatives.
Worse, Tenet said WMDs in Iraq, “was a slam-dunk”.
