  • Jeff (Jskorn)

    . ByondPolitics Fahrenthold Why? She knows the order is unconstitutional. She also knows she's leaving when a new AG comes.

  • Jskorn Fahrenthold "she knows" If she is an attorney she knows her job is to represent her client. If she can't, then resign.

  • Jeff (Jskorn)

    . ByondPolitics Fahrenthold POTUS is NOT her client. She defends the Constitution. There's a reason why we have branches of government.

  • Jskorn Fahrenthold No one said "POTUS." Yes. We have branches of government. She is a member of the Executive Branch.

  • Concerned Citizen (Amazed1950)

    ByondPolitics Jskorn Fahrenthold wrong!

  • Amazed1950 Jskorn Fahrenthold You're right. I was incorrect. She is no longer a member of the Executive Branch. She was.

  • Concerned Citizen (Amazed1950)

    ByondPolitics Jskorn Fahrenthold so you understand her job was 2 review cases on merit, not 2 pleasure of potus? This basic tenant of gov
