The Trump administration has been going thorough certain rough patches, and it turns out that former President Barrack Obama's top administration lawyers are approaching fast to fight against Trump. There are various reasons for the fight against the president but some believe that his aggressive use of authority from the very first day was guaranteed to attract court challenges.
Obama had also faced a few legal fights over executive power, with some of his major challengers being formerly lawyers for President George W. Bush. Though the issues came later in his presidency, they were also related to immigration and Obamacare as per Reuters.
The lawyers included to fight against Trump is Jonathan Smith, the legal director of legal right group Muslim advocates and former attorney general Eric Holder, who is currently advising California's legislature on challenging Trump over immigration.
It appears that almost 45 Obama era U.S. attorneys are out of jobs after Donald Trump's administration forced them to resign. This also included the influential Manhattan prosecutor Preet Bharara.
Most of Obama's lawyers reject the notion by some Republicans that Obama is behind resistance efforts. They find it a treat to democracy and constitution, Smith stated that they see the president is mounting on the Muslim community. Smith has worked on religious discrimination issues at the Justice Department.
On the other hand there are other appointees taking on Trump, this includes former White House lawyer Ian Bassin, who has founded United to Protect Democracy, a new group probing Trump over ethics.
Norman Eisen was one of Obama's top ethics lawyers and the ambassador of Czech Republic. He has been chairing Citizens of Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, earlier the group has already taken action and sued the president for alleged ethics violations. It appears that the battle over the immigration ban is not going to stop anytime soon.
