The Attorney General Defied Trump's Muslim Ban. He Did One Thing He Knows How to Do: He Fired Her

President Donald Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates on Monday night, just hours after she announced the Justice Department would not defend Trump’s executive order temporarily banning all refugees, as well as citizens, from seven Muslim-majority nations. Yates had served in the Justice Department for 27 years. The White House issued a statement last night reading: "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."
