Whenever Barack Obama came across a law he didn’t like, he simply refused to enforce it, told relevant departments to ignore it, and instructed his yes-man at the DOJ (Holder and then Lynch) not to defend the law when the Social Justice Warriors he tweeted or texted about it brought a lawsuit against the USA. Thereby the Left could change by Lawfare what Democrats didn’t have a chance in Hell of accomplishing in Congress.
Today, a Barack Obama appointed holdover at the DOJ is utilizing this tactic to undermine the United States government once again. The Washington Post has some details about the soon-to-be unemployed liberal activist Sally Yates…
“Acting Attorney General Sally Yates has ordered Justice Department lawyers not to defend challenges to President Trump’s immigration order temporarily banning entry into the United States for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries and refugees from around the world, declaring in a memo Monday she is not convinced the order is lawful.”
She will be replaced in a matter of days by either another acting AG or Jeff Sessions, whose confirmation may come as soon as tomorrow.
Update, 2 hours later: As predicted, she’s been fired, and it happened in just a matter of hours rather than days. Maybe she can now protest with Lena Dunham, or something equally unproductive yet liberal to the core.
