President Donald Trump speaks to the Ohio Republican Party State Dinner, Friday, Aug. 24, 2018, in Columbus.

President Trump last week fired State Department Inspector General Steve Linick.

It was the latest in a string of officials in watchdog roles fired by the president in recent months, turning on its head the tradition that such jobs are filled with non-partisan figures.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, political journalist Ken Rudin, host of Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie podcast, talks with us about what it all means in the context of the U.S. pandemic response and the 2020 election.
