She just won’t stop.

Recently on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated Congress will investigate President Donald Trump for firing of Steve Linick, the State Department’s inspector general.

According to Breitbart, CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked, “Madam Speaker, late Friday, President Trump sent you a letter saying that he was going to remove the inspector general of the State Department, Steve Linick. There’s the fourth IG to be removed in six weeks. Why was Linick removed? What’s behind this?”

Pelosi responded, “Well, this is new to us and typical of the White House announcing something that is very unsavory. They would do it late on a Friday night. The fact is, as you indicated, it’s the fourth inspector general- inspectors general, that office was created after Watergate to make sure that there was integrity in the departments, the agencies of government. They’re supposed to show cause. Even Republicans in Congress are concerned about and have spoken out.”

Brennan replied, “Was he investigating the secretary of state? When you say unsavory, is that what you mean?”

Pelosi answered, “Well, I mean, unsavory when you take out someone who is there to enforce the- to stop waste, fraud, abuse or other violations of the law that are- they believed to be happening. So, again, let’s take a look and see. The president has the right to fire any federal employee. But the fact is, if it looks like it’s in retaliation for something that the attorney- the IG, the inspector general is doing, that could be unlawful.”
