Congress is beginning to notice that Joe Biden has been refusing to fill key positions for federal watchdogs who are supposed to investigate corruption in Washington.
One member of congress, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), is wondering why the Biden administration is refusing to fill these important positions.
“To date, the U.S. Department of State (State) IG position has been vacant for over 1,100 days with no nominee; the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) IG position has been vacant for over 850 days; and the U.S. Department of the Treasury (Treasury) IG position has been vacant for almost 1,500 days,” Comer wrote in a letter set on Monday.
Per Just the News:
According to the House website, the role of the Inspector General is to “periodically (at least every 5 years) inspect and audit the administration of activities and operations of each Foreign Service post and each bureau and other operating unit of the Department of State, and shall perform such other functions as the Secretary of State may prescribe.”
Tristan Leavitt, the President of Empower Oversight, a nonprofit that advocates for government whistleblowers, said the vacancies are harmful for whistleblowers.
“Inspector General vacancies hamper accountability and are a disservice to whistleblowers,” Leavitt said in a statement to Just the News. “The watchdog function is neutered when the White House and Senate slow roll confirmations. Every vacancy is a win for corruption and abuse of power.”
Clearly, Joe Boden does not want corruption rooted out in Washington.
He wants all corruption to be ignored, because corruption is his game.
All in for “the big guy.”Commentary
