President Donald Trump attacked intelligence community Inspector General Michael Atkinson for being a "disgrace" for following the law and alerting Congress to the Ukraine whistleblower report the administration was attempting to cover-up.

Trump fired Atkinson on Friday.

During a briefing on the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump lashed out at Atkinson in a rant with multiple falsehoods about the scandal for which he was impeached.

"Somebody should sue his ass off," Trump suggested.
