On Monday, former Attorney General Sally Yates demonstrated some badassery. At Couch Activism, we reject the notion that 45 can fire non-partisan officials while they are actively involved in upholding rule of law or an active investigation into his White House (yes, even the ever-problematic Comey). Sally Yates demonstrated the type of badassery that needs to be happening now more than ever. In case you missed it:
- You can read the full transcript of the hearing.
- Or a highlight reel by the New York Times or The Washington Post
- Mother Jones argues that this is bad news for 45's White house, but in the spirit of balance, it's important to note that Yates is not without her critics.
Not into reading? Partial to an inflammatory approach by a former MSNBC host? (Hi, Mom) have some Keith Olbermann.
