    WASHINGTON, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates has told Justice Department lawyers not to defend President Donald Trump's order temporarily banning travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries, CNN reported on Monday, citing unnamed sources.


    Yates was named deputy attorney general by then-President Barack Obama in 2015 and asked to stay on as acting head of the Justice Department by Trump.

    She as been fired. Not sure of replacement.

    Professor Alan Dershowitz says the democrats may try to further delay Senator Sessions as Attorney General. He says that the words of Sally Yates can be used against the President's side in court.

    Obama Appointee, Interim DOJ Head Refuses To Defend President Trump Executive Order…


    Posted on January 30, 2017 by sundance


    And now we see why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was so willing to drag his UniParty feet and not get AG Jeff Sessions confirmed…


    WASHINGTON (AP) — Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, a Democratic appointee, says she’s directed Justice Department attorneys not to defend President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees.


    Yates said in a memo Monday that she is not convinced that Trump’s order is lawful, or that its defense is consistent with the department’s obligation to “always seek justice and stand for what is right.”


    Yates was appointed deputy attorney general by President Barack Obama. She became acting attorney general once Loretta Lynch left the position.



    Her directive will be in place until she leaves the department, which will happen once the Senate confirms Sen. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s pick for attorney general. (read more)

    I thought I heard Senator Dick Durbin say Senator McConnell was holding up some of the confirmations.

    Full statement on attorney general firing

    Mike Allen 5 mins ago

    President Trump, at 9:16 p.m. Monday, announced the firing of the acting attorney general who had defied him on his migrant-travel ban, saying she "has betrayed the Department of Justice."

    Here is the text, emailed to reporters:

    Statement on the Appointment of Dana Boente as Acting Attorney General

    The acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States. This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel.

    Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.

    It is time to get serious about protecting our country. Calling for tougher vetting for individuals travelling from seven dangerous places is not extreme. It is reasonable and necessary to protect our country.

    Tonight, President Trump relieved Ms. Yates of her duties and subsequently named Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as Acting Attorney General until Senator Jeff Sessions is finally confirmed by the Senate, where he is being wrongly held up by Democrat senators for strictly political reasons.

    "I am honored to serve President Trump in this role until Senator Sessions is confirmed. I will defend and enforce the laws of our country to ensure that our people and our nation are protected," said Dana Boente, Acting Attorney General

    I'm not sure they can. I could be wrong, but I thought the one week delay Session is currently under was the only delay 'bullet' the Democrats had.
