GOVERNMENT/OBAMA ADMIN: “I’ve gotten rid of a lot of inspector generals; every President has. I think every President has gotten rid of probably more than I have. A lot of our people kept the Obama inspector general, and I think, generally speaking, that’s not a good thing to do, but they’ve kept them.
But I told them — for three years I said, ‘Anybody who wants to get rid of their inspector generals because they were appointed by President Obama, I think you should do so.'”
