Sally Yates: Feds Probing Russia-Trump Ties May Fear Their Jobs

Former Attorney General Sally Yates says Department of Justice employees probing ties between President Donald Trump and Russia may fear for their jobs with the firing of FBI director James Comey.

"This is certainly a troubling situation and it can have a chilling effect," Yates told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday night. "They should be able to do their jobs without any fear at all."

Yates, fired by the president on Jan. 31, added "our loyalty at the Department of Justice should be to the people of the United States" — not the president.

Trump axed Comey saying he could no longer be trusted. But this week The New York Times reported that a Comey memo detailed how the president had asked him to drop a probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn — which some believe amounts to an obstruction of justice.

"The explanations (for his firing) seem to change on what is almost an hourly basis . . . it seems as though there is only one truth, and we ought to get to that," Yates said.
