Democrats say Trump pick for coronavirus recovery watchdog is not independent enough
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trumps pick for the new watchdog overseeing $2.3 trillion in coronavirus-related fiscal spending is not independent enough to do the job, congressional Democrats said on Saturday. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/PoolThe White House said late on Friday Trump would nominate Brian Miller, a special assistant to the president and senior associate counsel in the Office of White House Counsel, to the role of special inspector general for pandemic recovery. The Inspector General providing oversight of the federal response of this historic relief package for workers and families must be independent from politics, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi echoed in her own statement. Senate Democrats, including Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and the top Democratic senator on the Senate Finance Committee, also criticized the move. The White House announced Trump had selected Miller for the role on the same night that he fired the inspector general of the U.S. intelligence community, Michael Atkinson.feeds.reuters.com

It will likely come as little surprise to this group that I have chosen to speak about the Constitutions approach to executive power. This process I think has substantially weakened the functioning of the Executive Branch, to the detriment of the Nation. Just as the great separation-of-powers theorists Polybius, Montesquieu, Locke had, the Framers thought of Executive power as a distinct specie of power. To be sure, Executive power includes the responsibility for carrying into effect the laws passed by the Legislature that is, applying the general rules to a particular situation. They could insinuate checks and balances into the Executive branch itself by conferring Executive power on multiple individuals (a council) thus dividing the power.justice.gov
