You're Fired!
« on: January 30, 2017, 07:59:04 PM »
Trump fired the Acting Attorney General tonight, a woman who was a holdover from the Obama Administration. She told her employees not to enforce the travel ban instituted by President Trump.

Woohoo! I love this guy.  8)

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."

Sally Yates, an Obama holdover, late Monday had ordered the Justice Department not to defend his executive order restricting migrant travel.

As her successor, until the confirmation of Jeff Sessions as attorney general, Trump named Dana J. Boente, a 31-year Justice Department veteran. He was nominated by President Obama in 2015 to be U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, based in Alexandria. Boente is a graduate of St. Louis University and its School of Law, and has lived in Northern Virginia for 29 years, according to his official bio.

Here is the text of Trump's announcement, 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.
