Mueller deputy praised DOJ official after she defied Trump travel ban order: ‘I am so proud’

A top prosecutor who is now a deputy for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe praised outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by President Trump for refusing to defend his controversial travel ban.

The email, obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, shows that on the night of Jan. 30, Andrew Weissmann wrote to Yates under the subject line, “I am so proud.”

He continued, “And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”

The disclosure follows confirmation that another Mueller investigator, FBI official Peter Strzok, was fired over the summer after allegedly sending anti-Trump texts to an FBI lawyer with whom he was romantically involved.

    Obviously, in complete agreement, nothing less than a Co-Conspirator in Treason for deliberately Disobeying a LAWFUL ORDER from the President of the United States for th4e purpose of Undermining the Government of the United States from within.
    Acting as a political SABOTEUR both are subject to Military Tribunal because their crime is against the CONSTITUTION and not any “legislated law” Which is corruptible whereas the Constitution is Clear and Concise and not Corruptible by any means other than the Amendment Process which has not been employed in this case.

    Hey bobbiestuff: he was not wrong and you are an idiot. I am not the first to say this to you. When an order is given it needs to be followed unless it causes immediate death. Not every “refugee” is one, some are moles sent here to cause harm.

    It take guts to stand up to the President when he is wrong, his first travel ban was un-defendable and Yates told the president so. Yate did not attack the president she said she couldn’t defend a EO.

      You Bob are full of shit! The President has a Constitutional authority to ban anyone he wants to ban. You need to pick up and READ the Constitution. You’re a dumb ass and don’t know shit about our government or the duties or authority of our elected officials. You’re an ass hole Bob, and a stupid one at that! Go phuk yourself.

      boobnstuff is here to prove his value to another conversation!!!!

      Having no brain of his own, he simply parrots the scribbles of his betters.

      In short, a DEEP CELLAR Troll.
