That didn’t take long. Ten minutes after I posted my comments on the courage of the Acting Attorney General, Sally Yates — who ordered her department not to defend Trump’s Executive Order on immigration — Trump fired her.
She has been fired for loyalty to the Constitution rather than to the president. That’s about as honorable a firing as one can get. We’re going to need lots and lots of courageous people in Washington, people like Sally Yates.
Meanwhile, Trump wants to fill the Attorney General’s office with a swamp-rat, Jeff Sessions.
Which will come first: Trump’s resignation or his impeachment?
If you do nothing else in the months ahead, I do hope you will write lots and lots of letters to your congressional representatives and your senators.
