President Trump, at 9:16 p.m. Monday, announced the firing of the acting attorney general who had defied him on his migrant-travel ban, saying she "has betrayed the Department of Justice."

Here is the text, emailed to reporters:

Statement on the Appointment of Dana Boente as Acting Attorney General 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.

This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel. Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration. It is time to get serious about protecting our country. Calling for tougher vetting for individuals travelling from seven dangerous places is not extreme. It is reasonable and necessary to protect our country.

Tonight, President Trump relieved Ms. Yates of her duties and subsequently named Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as Acting Attorney General until Senator Jeff Sessions is finally confirmed by the Senate, where he is being wrongly held up by Democrat senators for strictly political reasons.

"I am honored to serve President Trump in this role until Senator Sessions is confirmed. I will defend and enforce the laws of our country to ensure that our people and our nation are protected," said Dana Boente, Acting Attorney General.

Well ... that'll just about serve as a lesson to anyone foolish enough to fart in the company of the most powerful man on Earth.

So he only wants "yes men". I wonder if this new guy will be allowed to actually think, or only be expected to
rubber-stamp every idea the man has, no matter of the morality or repercussions.

Unfortunately, I believe we know the answer to that. He's a one-man show.

She was an Obama appointee, a hold-over from the previous administration.

Her "shelf-life" was measured in hours anyway.

Now she is just Salty Yates.


Smart move however, she knew her days were numbered but if she could get her face and name out there, she stands a shot somewhere else.
