    President Trump has fired the acting AG after she refused to defend Trump's immigration orders.

    Nicely done, Mr. President. If you can't or won't enforce the president's orders then you shouldn't be the acting AG.

    The word "betrayed" was used in the press release. Smack!

    Since you're duplicating posts, I don't feel so guilty duplicating mine ...

    So if asked to follow an illegal order, you'd say, "YESSIR! Anything you say, SIR!!!"

    How courageous. :rolleyes:

    The whole thing was reviewed by the DOJ before he signed it. She's either incompetent or complacent. Either way, she's fired.

    Can you confirm that she was involved? 100% positive? If so, how?

    She's the AG. Buck stops on her desk on anything coming out of DOJ. You think Obama signed anything without Holder touching it? Don't you people know how government works?

    You have not been paying attention with how Trump has been creating his EOs. So - as another posters said - source?

    Dems played checkers and held up Sessions. Trump played chess. Checkmate!

    He's orange not red, though he seems to be fading back in to a normal color.

    So upholding the law is political now?

    Wait.. Politics is political? Crazy

    This solves nothing for Trump except making a hero out of Yates and showing how much of a dictator/puppet he is of Bannon.

    Now there's no AG until Sessions is confirmed. It's not going to get him confirmed faster. And she was going to be leaving when he was.

    So how is this a win? More like an embarrassment.

    The same Sessions denied a federal judgeship by a Republican congress in the 80's?

    Trump is not Obama.

    Assuming that trump followed the same procedures as Obama is utterly unsubstantiated.

    This is worth Celebrating? Impulsive Childish inexperienced reality tv host now POTUS...

    Lets say he puts forth orders that are unconstitutional everyone is supposed to Oblige and not question him?
    What will he do when we are at the negotiating table with other countries on defense, and trade matters?

    This guy is unfit and I can't wait until he fires people from his own cabinet it's going to be epic this is panning out to be the longest most terrifying South Park episode .

    Well, no foreign surveillance warrants until someone is approved by the Senate . . .

    A voice of reason has no place in an administration lead by a man who has only one arrow in his quiver.

    Keep them afraid, keep them controllable.
