"He's decapitating the leadership of the intelligence community in the middle of a national crisis,"

He's continuing to do so. Trump fears 'intelligence' in every way the word is used. He and those in his regime are continuing to do what they said they would do and what their supporters wanted them to do, which is undermine the very foundations the republic was built on. And so far he's succeeding.

Michael Atkinson was known for his "integrity, professionalism, and commitment to the rule of law and independent oversight."

Trump has never shown 'integrity' at any point in his pampered life. Re the 'law', Trump and regime are followers of the beliefs held by despots throughout history:

For my friends everything; for my enemies the law

Atkinson, a Trump appointee, had determined that a whistleblower's report was credible in alleging Trump abused his office in attempting to solicit Ukraine's interference in the 2020 U.S. election for his political benefit.

Hero.

Wat did you mean when you said he acted improperly and used bad judgement? You don't have to answer if you don't want to. Liabilities and all that.

And the Nixon parallels just continue - now he's conducting his own Friday Night Massacre...

And it will end the same way too - tossed out in humiliation...

The investigation is over and it turns out that the Atkinson was wrong and provided aid and comfort to the anti-democratic #resistance. He was responsible for initiating a coup attempt during the onset of a world virus pandemic. He made mistakes and enabled the weaponization of politics. He was the wrong person for the job a the wrong time.

Democrats have expressed concerns about how the fiscal package will be doled out

err... that would be the same democrats, who, among other things, wrote this in the Corona emergency pork bill:

$25 million to the Kennedy Center

$350 million to refugee resettlement

$75 million to PBS broadcasting

$25 million to congressional salary increases

.... just a little snippet.

Yeah, just what the country needs when people are suffering from the Corona shutdown. You can sleep well now.

This has been debunked by politifact and pulled from Facebook. Glad to hear you're staying on top of things.
