As Twitchy reported, former Attorney General Eric Holder attempted to launch the #ThankYouSally hashtag late Monday night in support of former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who was fired abruptly by President Trump after announcing she would not defend the president’s executive order on immigration and refugees, which she determined was not “wise or just.”
Not surprisingly, Holder’s successor, Loretta Lynch, also made a statement in support of Yates, an Obama appointee, praising her “fierce intellect, unshakable integrity, and deep commitment to the rule of law.”
Loretta Lynch is praising Sally Yates
Bc of course she is

@politico Really, Loretta? Please share with the country Sally Yates's detailed legal analysis objecting to Trump's EO. …didn't think so

@politico Yates had a job to do and wouldn't do it. She is simply positioning herself to be a player in the next election cycle, just watch

Yates showed disrespect for the US Constitution.

Former Disgraced Att Gen Loretta Lynch Praises former Fired Att Gen Sally Yates. What a crew of Beauties. No low is too low for these hacks

@politico Rule of law? Like when you met secretly with the husband of the woman you were investigating for high crimes?

@politico almost as much integrity as secret meetings on the tarmac with family of someone she should be prosecuting.

@politico Not unlike your meeting w Bill Clinton. Disingenuous BS from another Obama foot soldier

@politico She met with Bill Clinton on her airplane while investigating his wife. Her opinion doesn't count for shit with integrity.

The fact that Yates had to go doesn’t seem to be in question, unlike Lynch’s and Holder’s historical ranking.
This coming from the the most corrupt AG
