Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday bashed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his role in the recent dismissal of his agency’s top watchdog, calling the episode “scandalous” and urging Pompeo to provide a justification before Congress.

“Let’s see how this unfolds,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “But what it is that we know so far is scandalous.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Pelosi said President Trump’s decision to remove State Department Inspector General Steve Linick within 30 days, a move recommended by Pompeo, is part of broader pattern of recent IG dismissals, which risk allowing top administration officials to flout guidelines — and even break laws — with impunity.

“What this president is doing is by undermining truth … undermining democracy. This is scandalous,” Pelosi declared Wednesday at a press briefing.
