New Justice Department Records Show Strong Support by Mueller Deputy Andrew Weissmann, Other Top DOJ Officials for Yates’ Refusal to Enforce President Trump Travel Ban

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released two productions (335 pages and 44 pages) of Justice Department (DOJ) documents showing strong support by top DOJ officials for former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ refusal to enforce President Trump’s Middle East travel ban executive order. In one email, Andrew Weissmann, one of Robert Mueller’s top prosecutors and formerly the Obama-era Chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section, applauds Yates writing: “I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”

    why wouldn’t that be grounds for instant dismissal? 20 minutes to pick up personal then perp walk to the gates.

    Jeff Sessions won’t do anything about it because he obtains sexual pleasure primarily through the rectum.

    If this is allowed to continue it will be the end of the United States as it was founded. There is clearly a shadow government running the show while the elected president may occupy the office he is reduced to being pretty much powerless. If Trump does not start appointing qualified and loyal people, he is toast. McMasters and Sessions should have been turfed long ago and there are many more.

    DOJ, FBI, CIA and State need to be purged as of yesterday.
    I don’t care if it creates a personnel shortage that takes a decade to sort out, they need to be cleaned out.
    None of them are THAT essential.

      It would be better to have a personnel shortage and nothing get done than all of the planned leftists attacks on the people and the Constitution.

    So far, out of everyone involved, the married lead FBI investigator and FBI lawyer who we’re banging each other while sending anti-Trump texts have my vote as the most impartial, decent and honorable of the lot.

    The encouraging thing is that it looks like various people/entities like Judicial Watch are starting to triangulate on these traitors. Can’t bleach bit this stuff either, Elvis has left the building.
