Vive la résistance!

CNN:

The acting Attorney General Sally Yates has told Justice Department lawyers not to make legal arguments defending President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees, according to sources familiar with the order.

The move sets up a dramatic clash between the White House and the Obama-appointed Yates.
One minor correction: the move sets up a dramatic clash between the WH and the Rule of Law.

Trump has fired Sally Yates. She was replaced by Dana Boente. Who should put him/herself in line to be fired next, rather than risk being the "Bork" in this equation.
