State Department officials testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the firing of the agency’s inspector general, Steve Linick. Witnesses included Undersecretary of State for Management Brian Bulatao. He defended the Trump administration’s firing of Mr. Linick saying, “This removal was about an IG who was increasingly falling short of expectations.” Throughout the hearing, Democratic lawmakers continually questioned the State Department officials about the reasons for Mr. Linick’s removal as well as Secretary of State Pompeo’s role in the matter. On May 15, 2020, President Trump sent a letter to Congress announcing he was removing Mr. Linick from office, citing a lack of full confidence in the inspector general. close
