Judicial - Third Independent Branch of Government Civics 101
Donald Trump is despearate to claim his own dictatorship in the White House but he hasn't a clue how to do it and get away with tweeting his way to success. In fact,Trump doesn't have a golf course to hide on these days, so he's signing executive orders with a the pen, probably pretending it's a golf tee. Meanwhile, the Congress and his White House Staff are picking up Trump "dung" like they're all circuls clowns following the elephants around the big top.
|Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Assistant Attorney General Sally Yates have created a wake of distrust for Donald Trump with their courage and ability to stand "truth to power". Any new "boss" at the Justice Department will have two tough leadership acts to follow.|
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who served under President Obama, responded:
Loretta Lynch praises Sally Yates for 'courageous leadership'
By Rebecca Savransky for The Hill
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Tuesday praised former acting Attorney General Sally Yates for her "courageous leadership."
The order bars people from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia from entering the country for 90 days; suspends the country's refugee resettlement program for 120 days; and indefinitely suspends resettlement of refugees from Syria.
The White House on Monday issued a statement saying Yates, who was appointed by former President Barack Obama, had "betrayed the U.S. government." (This is hypocrisy- it's the Trump administration who is betraying the desperate refugees and making innocent people feel like criminals without cause and stripping them all of due process!)
In the statement, the statement said Yates was "weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration." (But, it was Sally Yates who prosecuted and convicted the evil Atlanta bomber Eric Rudolph, the man who attacked the 1996 Summer Olympic Games)
"It is time to get serious about protecting our country," the statement said.
Trump selected Dana Boente, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to replace Yates until his attorney general nominee, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), is confirmed by the Senate.
Obama nominated Yates for deputy attorney general in December 2014. She was confirmed by the Senate in May 2015, making her the Justice Department's No. 2 under Lynch.
