Sally Yates on Civil Rights
In a pair of tweets, the former Justice Department official quoted Edmund Burke and warned that those who did not stand up to Trump over his slams on the four lawmakers would bear responsibility for enabling them.
She tweeted: 'The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.' Edmund Burke. Standing idly by as the moral fiber of our country is shredded by unapologetic racism may seem politically expedient to some, but it is ruinous for our nation. And those who could have stood up but cowered instead bear equal responsibility for the vile devolution of our country's values.
The House voted on mostly party lines Tuesday to condemn as racist the president's tweets aimed at Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Rashida Tlaib (MI.) and Ayanna Pressley (MA).
