Justice Department Refuses to Defend Trump’s Muslim Ban

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–January 30, 2017

Acting Attorney General Sally Yates

Just in from CNN—remember, the current Attorney General, Sally Yates, is an Obama holdover.

The acting Attorney General Sally Yates has told Justice Department lawyers not to make legal arguments defending President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration and refugees, according to sources familiar with the order.

Yates, an Obama appointee who is serving until Trump attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions is confirmed, does not believe the substance of the order is lawful, according to the sources.

Her order is enforced only until she leaves office.

Currently, there are cases filed in at least five states including Virginia, New York, Massachusetts, Washington and California that are challenging Trump’s order.

Why drag out the confirmations as long as possible, you ask, even if Trump’s minions might still be confirmed? Because, this.
