President Donald Trump on Monday fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. Yates was a Democratic appointee; and when Trump signed his Executive Order to ban Muslims from 7 different countries, Sally Yates question the constitutionality of the Order and told Law Enforcement Officials not to honor that ban.
Trump accused her of betrayal and insubordination; when she told Department Attorneys not to defend the executive order, saying that was not convinced ti was lawful or consistent with agency’s obligation “to stand for what is right.”
Then Trump accused Sally Yates of betraying the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States of America.
A new Acting Attorney General was appointed moments after the firing. He is Dana Boente, Federal Prosecutor for the Easter District of Virginia.
