The Plot Thickens

As if the President’s first week in office weren’t interesting enough, he has decided to fire Attorney General Sally Yates, who had been the placeholder until Jeff Sessions is confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Or so we thought. The proximate cause of her dismissal was her refusal to defend the legal actions of the current administration. It should be noted that the obstruction of Sessions was part of a concerted strategy by Democrats to thwart the domestic and foreign policies of the incoming administration. As if this titanic political struggle weren’t enough to consume the 24 hour news cycle, President Trump is set to announce his first Supreme Court nominee later tonight.

We do live in interesting times.
