During Hillary Clinton's term to oversee the State Department, there wasn't an Inspector General appointed, Buck Sexton said while filling in for Glenn on The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday. That would be a very convenient coincidence for a Secretary of State who played loosey goosey with her email communications.
Kevin from Ohio called in with one suggestion that took Buck by surprise.
"I was just wondering now, I heard you say right before the break, there was no IG inspector at the time this was going on. Now, why do you suppose there was no IG inspector?" Kevin asked. "They (Congress) would not confirm anyone."
Something about that didn't sit right with Buck, so he did a bit of research during the commercial break.
"Very important update, my friends. We were talking about just a minute ago that Congress was so obstinate and wouldn't put forward an IG --- completely false, which I thought, but I wasn't 100 percent sure of. And unlike some people, I don't like to just say things that are wrong. That's wrong," Buck said.
His research turned up even more than he'd initially expected.
"President Barack Obama never put forward an inspector general for the State Department. It was the longest period the State Department has ever gone --- over five years --- without an inspector general, directly coincided with Hillary Clinton's time as Secretary of State," Buck said.
"And it was the only presidentially appointed IG that the president never even put forward a nominee for. Why is that? You can't put this one on Congress. Nice try," Buck said. "This one is on the Obama administration."
