Chuck Grassley holding up Trump nominations until he gets answers on inspector general firings

WASHINGTON — Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Thursday that he is holding up two of President Donald Trump's nominations until the administration explains why a pair of inspectors general were recently fired.

Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Whistleblower Protection Caucus,"is refusing to advance certain nominees until the White House provides adequate reasons for the termination of the Intelligence Community and State Department inspectors general," his office said in a press release. The senator's office also noted that the Inspector General Reform Act of 2008 requires the president to provide Congress with a written explanation at least 30 days before removing an inspector general in order to prevent politically motivated terminations.

Story continuesGrassley sent two letters in April and May to the president after the firings of multiple inspectors general, including Atkinson and Linick, and requested reasons in writing behind their terminations specifically.
