However, according to Singh’s lawyer Paul Champ, Singh received a sudden and unexpected letter of termination, citing that he was being let go without due cause.

The Huffington Post reports that senators were told that Singh was fired for insubordination, however, they were informed not to speak about the issue publicly.

Champ explained the situation, saying: “He’s been enjoying a career on an upward trajectory in the public service,” Champ said. “He’s highly skilled, educated and [a] bilingual, visible minority and he’s received only excellent performance appraisals.
