Trump Fires IG Looking Into Saudi Weapon Sales

by | May 20, 2020

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.

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.
