on

According to CNN, Defense Department Principal Deputy Inspector General Glenn Fine has submitted his resignation this Tuesday, just over a month after President Trump blocked him from becoming the chairman of the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee.

“One Pentagon official told CNN Fine was not told to resign and did so on his own accord.

Trump picked Robert Wilkie to run the VA in 2018, despite, or because of, the former naval intelligence officer’s long-established love affair with the 19th Century traitor Jefferson Davis and the “Lost Cause” of the Confederacy.
