The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Subcommittee on Space, Aeronautics, and Related Sciences and the House Science and Technology Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight held a joint hearing on the investigation of complaints accusing NASA Inspector General Robert Cobb of failing to investigate safety violations and retaliating against whistleblowers. Senator Grassley was the first witness. Inspector General Cobb testified, denying some of the complaints against him.

There have been calls for Mr. Cobb’s removal since the publication of a 2007 report from the Integrity Committee of the President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency. The report showed that NASA Inspector General Robert Cobb had abused his authority, demonstrated a lack of independence from NASA, and not met the criteria for inspector general performance. close
