Hey, Butch. Apparently, that did not require congressional approval. scumbag says he didn't know, but he's a pathological, fucking serial liar--he knew. He said he did it 2 save money (you know, run the government like a business). The president has great leeway to fire. But, Obama put that pandemic team together when ebola became such a problem in Africa. And you know, scumbag has tried to eliminate all traces of Obama.
Here's an article from '18 about the termination of the pandemic team.
With republican control of both the house and senate, and mconnell controlling the senate, scumbag has had unprecedented power. They've allowed every whim of the mental case who won the electoral college.

and, here's a little more information.

and, then there's this. The pandemic team was part of national security (and, that seems right on). Certainly, a complete collapse of the healthcare system, the stock market, and jobs constitutes a national security crisis. And, again, the president can assign his own national security team.
I'm no authority, tho. Maybe these links will add perspective.
