Response to Eliot Rosewater (Reply #1)

7. Holder is correct. All government employees have a right to refuse an unlawful order. If they are

fired they can sue Trump and the Federal Government. The alternative is that you can go to JAIL for participating in or carrying out an unlawful order. I know that as a former federal employee and I am not a lawyer, nor did I work for the Justice Dept. Every federal employee knows that as well because they are taught that when they are hired and through subsequent annual and biannual training they are required to take. Ignorance of the law will not be a valid excuse.
