Judicial Watch announced today that it filed an appeal seeking the release from the Department of Justice of records from former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates related to her 2017 refusal to enforce President Donald Trump’s Middle East travel ban executive order. Judicial Watch argues that the documents are not shielded from disclosure, as the evidence of government misconduct by Yates.

At issue are four records described as “working drafts” of a January 30, 2017, statement by Yates instructing DOJ officials not to defend the executive order issued by then-President Trump. Trump fired Yates for insubordination after she issued the one-page statement.

The appeal concerns a May 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to a February FOIA request seeking Yates’ emails from her government account (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00832)) for the time period she served as Acting Attorney General for President Trump. Judicial Watch recently filed the brief in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch vs. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 20-5304)).
