Michael Atkinson, Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, works for us, for all of us: liberal, conservative, moderate, Democrat, Republican, Independent, Green Party, Libertarian, apolitical, indifferent. Supposedly:
In accordance with Title 50 U.S.C.A. Section 3033, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (ICIG) conducts independent and objective audits, investigations, inspections, and reviews to promote economy, efficiency, effectiveness, and integration across the Intelligence Community.
The ICIG does so with integrity, professionalism, and independence. We conduct our mission free of external influence and provide objective assessments, findings, and conclusions, regardless of political or personal consequence.
