Obama Fired an IG Who Exposed an Underage Sex Scandal and the Media Turned a Blind Eye

Fact checked
Liberals and the mainstream media were up in arms on Friday when President Trump fired the inspector general of the State Department, Steve Linick.

Liberals and the mainstream media were up in arms when President Trump fired the inspector general of the State Department, Steve Linick.

But where were those self-righteous liberals in 2009 when then-President Obama fired an inspector general who had exposed an underage sex scandal involving a former NBA star-turned-politician who just happened to be a prominent Obama supporter?

In accordance with the 2008 Inspector General Reform Actwhich protects inspectors general from being fired without cause, President Trump informed Congress in writing about his intent to fire Linick, expressing that he no longer had the “fullest confidence” in Linick, who was appointed by Obama in 2013.

PJMedia report: Democrats naturally have come out of the woodwork to express their faux outrage, and to launch an investigation into the firing over allegations that Trump acted to protect Pompeo.

But where were these Democrats in 2009 when Barack Obama fired the inspector general of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), Gerald Walpin?

Gerald Walpin was in the middle of an investigation when he was called by White House counsel Norman Eisen, who informed him that he had an hour to resign or be fired. This was in violation of the Reform Act, which Obama co-sponsored as a U.S. senator. Walpin refused.

Former Inspector General Gerald Walpin was fired by Obama in 2009.

After Walpin’s refusal, Obama wrote a letter to Congress, giving the following explanation: “It is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as Inspectors General. That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”

But here’s what really happened.

Gerald Walpin had been investigating Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA basketball star and Obama supporter, for misusing federal grant money from AmeriCorps.

The program was created by the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993 and grew to over 80,000 members. Program participants received benefits such as student loan deferment, living allowances, health benefits, career opportunities and training, and so forth. The program has done some good but has also been plagued by waste and corruption.

Sacramento former Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA basketball star and Obama supporter.

He found that Johnson gave $850,000 of AmeriCorps grant money to a nonprofit organization he founded called St. HOPE Academy. In addition to being improperly used to pay AmeriCorps volunteers for political activity, to wash his car, and to run his personal errands, Walpin also discovered that Johnson had used AmeriCorps grant money to pay hush money to underage girls, who were students at  St. HOPE Academy, that he had sexually assaulted and then staged a cover-up.

Walpin called for Johnson to be criminally prosecuted. Instead, Johnson was able to get a sweetheart deal avoiding prosecution if he paid back the money. This deal was approved by Alan Solomont, a major Democratic fundraiser who was also the chairman of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

Walpin was furious about the deal and made it known, prompting his illegal firing. Following the firing, the Obama White House waged a smear campaign against Walpin, making bogus allegations that he appeared “confused, disoriented and unable to answer questions,” and exhibited “behavior that led the [CNCS] board to question his capacity to serve.

An investigation by Congress into the illegal firing was met with stonewalling by the Obama White House, and the withholding of documents. The Obama White House also deliberately misled Congress about the reasons for the firing. Walpin was ultimately cleared of the allegations made by the Obama White House.

Obama broke the law to protect a donor and ally who had misused federal grant money and sexually abused three underage girls, then he and his appointees misled and stonewalled Congress in an attempt to cover up his own illegal behavior.

Where were the Democrats then?

For the most part, they were uninterested—as was the mainstream media.

If Donald Trump sneezes, they call for an investigation, but real abuses by Obama were virtually ignored. It would be a lot easier to take the Democrats seriously if they had cared about Obama’s corruption even just a little bit.

  1. Tbe Democrats are corrupt. They have been especially since the Clinton’s era Every Democrat knows ,unless absolutely delusional with ignorance,about Bill’s drug running operations as Governor of Arkansas and the resulting ” unsolved ” murders and cover ups Just Typical of this example by Obama of their modus operandi. The usual perversity that comes from Satan worshipping Saul Aliskys book rules for radicals Saul who was Hilarys friend at college Hilary who laughed about getting a violent rapist of his charges and left the victim to suffer the abuse from her sense of morality and justice Both who frequented Epsteins island Hilary who still hasn’t faced charges for raping Cathy O Brien decades ago But all of their crimes committed under acts of national security so above the Law as was apparently Pelisis ripping up of public documents an act of national security The only logical deduction is that ” they ” in the Jystice department nuevo Teump to be a threat to their security so any attempts to remove him are above the Law. Whereas any activities that threaten to 3xpise them as corrupt, as rapists ,as pedophiles or drug dealers are all threats to national security .And as President Obama told you that the MORAL authority for rile of law is the Popes.
