Sally Yates Would Make A Fantastic US Attorney General

Her story is heroic. She became aware she had serious breast cancer but kept her scheduled date to testify.

Yates, who was abruptly fired by President Trump for refusing to defend his executive order banning new arrivals from several Muslim-majority countries, is now in private practice. She was recently hired by U.S. Soccer to investigate allegations of sexual abuse in the National Women's Soccer League.

Yates opened up about her experience battling breast cancer in an essay for CBSNews.com ahead of her interview with Norah O'Donnell.

There isn't going to be a new AG until after the next election, under any circumstances.

...now that tfg isn't going to pick him for VP.
Could you even imagine who the orange pos would pick for AG? Habba would be a step up.
