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.


No. He wants people who will do their job.


Part of an Attorney General's job is picking and choosing which things to fight in court. Yates choose not to defend the immigration EO knowing that it is very likely to be struck down.

in that case integrity would dictate that you resign your position instead of hanging on,collecting a pay check when you know that you won`t do your job.

No, I'm not really shocked that he would fire anyone who pushes against him, but otherwise I don't see how your remark relates in any way to my comment.



Did you honestly expect him to keep an Obama appointee?

Really?

Are you shocked?


I don't think this thread is about whether or not I'm shocked, but you since you are so very interested in my opinion, I answered it in a previous post. Have another beer, DB. Don't stop drinking them until you love me.

Anyone care to explain how gross insubordination to your boss KEEPS you employed?
Yeah, it doesn't.

Ms. Yates may not like the laws she was sworn to uphold, but gas lighting the Boss was a boneheaded move. You can't affect change by being cast out. So doubly dumb. You're either part of the solution, or part of the problem. She chose unwisely.

Saying Trump is a authoritarian is unfair. This is how things in the real world work.
Bash your companies Brand or CEO or flatly refuse to do your job, you get bounced. ANYONE in a State or Federal job is required to support the policies and laws, personally like them or not. It's a condition of employment.

DUH!!!

Sorry I haven't read 4 pages into that thread


Not a problem. If ATS's search engine allowed "filters" there wouldn't be so many duplicates.

BTW, don't get too excited folks. Her replacement is also an old Obama appointee.

He is just there for the time being. Most likely a "yes-man".

Kudos for Yates for standing up to the loud-mouthed bully. She knew he would react this way.

The last time a US president fired his AG, was Nixon in 1973...and we all know what happened to Nixon..lol

This thing is getting more laughable by the minute.

Trump is crying foul, blaming the Democrats for holding him up. Welcome to the Real World, Donald!

If I had a boss who instructed me to do something against my ethics, and I refused, I would consider that exactly doing my job.

This Assistant AG probably thought that by making her declaration after 6pm, that Donald Trump was retired for the day, LOL. ANOTHER OUT OF TOUCH DEMOCRAT!

If your ethics mean you are unable to do your job, then find another one.

If it was why did the Acting AG not want to defend it?

Maybe its a GOP thing to fight tooth and nail for things that they know will be stopped by the courts.
