Let me see if I have this?
The Federal top justice guy wants to have his lawyers go after Governor’s and Mayors that are issuing executive orders to keep their citizens safe?
And he’s NOT kidding?
So if something develops and the judges asks a federal lawyer if they are trying stop people from being being safe?
WTF is that persons gonna say?
Oh, my boss, trying to make ‘his’ boss Trump happy, sent me to do this, which is to try to intimidate state and local officials ?
I doubt too many US attorneys are gonna mess with Governors or Mayor’s..
