PODCAST: Trump Fires Inspector General Looking Into Weapon Transfers to Saudis

Mike Pompeo was the investigation target

On FPF #494, I discuss Trump’s decision to fire the State Department Inspector General. At the time the IG was fired, the office was looking into State Department head Mike Pompeo.

Pompeo was a target because the State Dept continued to push to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia, even against the will of Congress and the laws of the US.

Saudi has used several US-made bombs to commit war crimes in Yemen. American bombs have been found in the bombing of weddings, funerals, and one was used to kill 44 Yemeni children on a school bus.
