Trump nominates former Nunes aide for intelligence community inspector general

Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he has nominated Allen Souza to be the next inspector general of the U.S. intelligence community. Trump fired former inspector general Michael Atkinson for his poor handling of the Ukraine whistleblower complaint.

Souza currently works on the White House National Security Council as a principal deputy senior director for intelligence programs but is best known as a former aide to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), a strongly conservative legislator.

Nunes is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee and has been embroiled in both the Russia collusion investigation and the Ukraine whistleblower complaint fiasco.

Souza was hired by Nunes’ as a lawyer for the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 and 2018 before taking over as staff director of the committee in 2019, so he is well-acquainted with the mess that is the United States’ Intelligence Community.

Trump unceremoniously fired Atkinson in April of 2020 after he brought the whistleblower complaint to House Democrats for investigation. That complaint kicked off months of investigation into President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, ultimately culminating in a failed impeachment attempt.

Trump said at the time of Atkinson’s firing that he did a “terrible job” in handling the “fake report,” saying that Atkinson is “not a big Trump fan, that I can tell you.”

Souza’s nomination has already been sent to the Senate for a hearing and confirmation vote.

  1. Well it’s good to see the Executive Branch and the Judicial Branch are working…
    ✓ Now if we can only get the Legislative Branch back to work, the House could be Great Again.
    Back to work on real Legislation for Our Republic, not for politics.

  2. One more person the impotent deep state can’t control. Most the press didn’t even know who he was until he was appointed, but that didn’t stop the sanctimonious clowns in the media from trying to show who was the most furriest.

  3. Political Science has ruined our republic for which it stands.
    Political Correctness was totalitarianism and no longer works in today’s technological world.

    Let’s get back to the real deal, rather than “All of this imitation” of work and progress (kids in school) in 2020 just for an election.

  4. In a country of laws and order, there is not place for restless media that all they do is distor the truth and lie to the American people. We never seen anything like CNN and many others that display bigotism, hate and bias towards a president and anyone who doesn’t agree with their agenda. It is time for president Trump to set an exsmple and pull their license. Others will change or fall in their own fate. God bless America and God bless president Trump.

  5. IT IS WAY PAST TIME THAT THE NEWS MEDIA IS STOPPED FROM TRYING TO TELL OUR GOVERNMENT WHAT TO DO AND TO STOP PROSCUTING PEOPLE OVER THE AIR, ALL THEY ARE DOING IS CAUSING THESE RIOTS ALONG WITH SORROS MONEY AND THIS MUST BE STOPPED.

    1. I am waiting till these rioters run out of cities to burn, and start looking for these media and news places to burn to have something to do. Then they will be sorry that they took Soros money.

    1. You know what is really funny, they accuse Trump of colluding with Putin. Did you know that everyone of the Dems running for office, are running on a communist agenda.

  6. Just wondering . . . . . Is there still a term such as TREASON that just might possibly applied to some of the people involved in the current situations. Seems to me that so many are getting away with just about anything, no matter how much it hurts the United States ! ! ! !
