I don’t recall this ever happening before.
The US acting attorney general has told the justice department not to defend President Trump’s immigration order.
Sally Yates, appointed chief legal adviser by Mr Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, said she was not “convinced” the order was lawful.
The president’s ban on nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries sparked street protests in the US and abroad.
Last time I checked, the AG is an advocate for the government – not a judicial body. This reeks of political and personal posturing to me. After all, what does she have to lose? She’ll be out of a job and looking for her next opportunity in a few days. Look for Yates to be celebrated as a hero of the Left and land a cushy position somewhere.
