WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Relations Committee on Saturday said it would investigate President Donald Trump’s firing of the State Department inspector general, after the president notified Congress late Friday that he planned to remove the watchdog.

The Democratic-led committee said it would launch the probe along with colleagues on the Foreign Relations Committee in the Senate, which is controlled by Trump’s fellow Republicans.
