Breaking News: Donald Trump – Fires Attorney General
While it’s late on the east coast, news has just broken from the White House. According to multiple reports, the attorney general, Sally Yates, was fired after she refused to argue President Donald Trump’s executive order regarding what people are dubbing as the “Muslim ban”.
Reports claim that Dana Boente has been named the new acting AG.
On the @PressSec Twitter count, press secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the news, stating, “[email protected] has named Dana Boente, US Attorney for the Eastern District of VA as Acting Attorney General. Sally Yates has been relieved.”
A lot of people are already taking issue with Trump’s decision, as they view the firing as something that was done out of spite for Yates not agreeing with him. Others view it as Yates not doing her job effectively, as they think she should have carried out the executive order if it was issued.
