The Opinion of Deputy Assistant Attorney General (a position previously held by torture advocate John Yoo) Daniel L. Koffsky came in handy to contravene the anti-nepotism statute hindering appointment of the President's son-in-law Jared Kushnerclear as senior White House adviser. But Deporter-in-Chief Donald Trump didn't bother to consult his Office of Legal Counsel for approval to conspire to deny the civil rights of members of the Muslim faith.
