President Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates last night, saying she “betrayed the Justice Department,” after she refused to defend his controversial immigration order. The White House immediately named another career prosecutor from Virginia, Dana Boente, to replace Yates but Boente’s tenure as AG figures to be only days long. There currently are five pending federal court cases challenging the travel ban. The new A.G. promptly pledged to defend Trump’s order. Thanks for showing that time Jeff Sessions urged Yates to disobey presidential orders.
