Oversight Republicans slam Biden for ‘political’ firings of Trump appointees from military panels



FIRST ON FOX: Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are slamming President Biden over his recent “political” firings of Trump administration officials who were appointed to military academies’ advisory boards.

Fox News exclusively obtained a letter from House Oversight Committee ranking member James Comer, R-Ky., to Office of Presidential Personnel Director Catherine Russell regarding the president’s demand for 18 military panel appointees from his predecessor’s administration to resign in the middle of their terms.

“Board members refusing to resign were considered fired at 6 p.m. that same day,” the lawmakers wrote. “We are unaware of any such action taken by a prior president or administration.”
