- Two top Democrats in Congress have announced they will investigate the president’s Friday firing of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick.

- Linick, who served in his role since he was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2013, was fired after he opened an investigation into Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Democrats alleged.
