"Acting Attorney General Sally Yates wrote that, as the leader of the Justice Department, she must ensure that the department’s position is “legally defensible” and “consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right.”
- “At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the Executive Order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the Executive Order is lawful,” Yates wrote. She wrote that “for as long as I am the Acting Attorney General, the Department of Justice will not present arguments in defense of the Executive Order, unless and until I become convinced that it is appropriate to do so.” "
This Obama holdover said this on Monday morning.
Chump fired her Monday night.
Chump replaced Sally Yates with someone (Dana Boente) who will do his bidding.
I thought he'd wait until Sessions is confirmed (as the Democrats don't have the votes to stop it or even the will to even fight as hard as they possibly can) But he's moving like King Chump, not even pretending to respect the balance of power in the other branches of government.
This makes him look even more unstable. I wonder if the masters of universe that make the stock market go up and down will think the same thing. I guess we'll see.
