Harsh? Sheriff Clarke drops shocking suggestion after saying fired acting AG Sally Yates got off too easy

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke thinks fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates got off too easy.

The outspoken sheriff thought President Donald Trump did not goo far enough in punishing Yates after she defied his orders.

The Obama appointee, who was the interim Attorney General pending the confirmation of Sen. Jeff Sessions, instructed the Justice Department not to defend the executive order on immigration and refugees against court challenges and was promptly fired by Trump on Monday.

For Clarke, the rebellious decision by Yates deserved more than just a pink slip.

The U.S. Sedition Act, which amended the Espionage Act of 1917 and was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson in 1918, prohibited negative speech against the country that could impact its war efforts. Punishment included imprisonment for five to 20 years for those convicted. The legislation was repealed in 1920.
