Should have posted here.

Sally Yates is out, Dana Boente is in.

Curious, anyone know why he couldn't or wouldn't appoint Sessions as acting AG?

Stupid, unjust, unfair, draconian, evil, cruel, I can hear how someone can feel that though I disagree for the most part. But unconstitutional? Sentors and the like are throwing that around right and left.  Can someone enlighten me how this can be construed as unconstitutional?

Unless we have a constitutional lawyer here that isn't going to happen. Going to have to wait and let the courts decide.

From what I understand, it has to be someone from within the Justice department. Also, because Dana Boente was confirmed by the Senate (when being appointed as US attorney) he can sign FISA warrants.

The irony is incredible. Here's Senator Sessions questioning Sally Yates during her confirmation hearing. He asks her if she's willing to do the exact thing she did yesterday:
&t=0m34s

actually not quite, She didn't oppose the person that appointed her - Obama, she went against Trump when she knows she'll be paraded around by the media as a hero for opposing..

Not the exact same thing she did yesterday.  What they are discussing is the duty of the AG to advise POTUS that something he would like to do is unlawful.  What she did was advise all her subordinates that she was unconvinced that the EO was lawful and order them to insubordinate.

It should be pretty unambiguious.  Does the Constitution address the rights of foreign nationals to enter the USA?

It is not that easy. It is the immigration law I believe they are talking about. One part says you can't discriminate based on nation of origin or where they were born. Another part says the president has the power to ban if it is in the best interest of the US.

Except that she admitted that the OLC found it lawful, and her main justification for not defending it was that it is not "just".

Her job is to defend any law that can be reasonably defended. Her statment only said "I am not convinced it is lawful".

If she was not comfortable doing her job, she should have quit.

She has a right to do the job as she sees fit and she was willing to face the consequences.
She knew she was being replaced shortly so she had nothing to worry about.

I don't know what's so controversial from either POV.

Agree with this completely. Both she and Trump did what they had to.

Those saying Trump is a dictator are watching a different movie.
