THREAD: Sally Yates confirmation hearing, in the context of Trump's statement/dismissal tonight, is something else. Here are some clips:
1. In 2015, one of Yates' introducers Republican @SenatorIsakson says: "Sally Yates is going to astonish the United States of America" YEAH
2. Republican @sendavidperdue praises Sally Yates for going after violent drug cartels, gangs, sex traffickers. Trump called her "very weak"
3. In 2015, Republican @JohnCornyn asked Sally Yates where her loyalties will lie. She says "to the people and constitution."
