BREAKING: SALLY YATES REPLACED AS ACTING AG

–Breaking–

Acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates was replaced by U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Dana Boente on Monday by President Trump.

This action is most likely a response to Sally Yates’ statement on Monday ordering DOJ lawyers not to defend President Trump’s controversial immigration order.

  1. I don’t think anyone is surprised by this, but to be fair, the Trump Administration chose to fire her versus convince her of the legality of the EO itself:
    ““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.””

    Personally, I’d have preferred the Trump Administration to convince her instead of firing her.

    • I think it’s just an illustration of what we already know: that Mr.Trump is thin skinned and spiteful. I agree that he should have tried to convince her of the legality of it. This is also further proof of his distaste for any dissent, whether it be in the media or in the Justice Department.
