not the Department of Following Orders

noah feldman:

(Sally) Yates referred to “this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right.”… Yates was saying that the department has a long-term obligation, transcending any particular administration, to stand for the rule of law.

That’s an inspiring position for the head of a department that is called the Department of Justice, not the Department of Following Orders.
