In testimony on May 8, 2017 before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, former deputy attorney general Sally Yates briefly discussed an issue that is part of the ongoing litigation over President Donald Trump's Executive Order No. 13769 of January 27, 2017 and Executive Order 13780 of March 6, 2017 limiting entry of refugees from some of the countries that are openly hostile to the United States and/or are incapable of helping us adequately vet the refugees. (Section 1[i] of the latter executive order revoked the earlier executive order.) In her discussion about the issue with Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), which begins at 1:33:50 here, she misquotes a United States Code section.

Worst writing on the planet, should lead with the misquote or I don’t read the rest.
I got a headache trying to read it!
IIRC, she was reading directly from notes.
From memory, it seems to me she did not say her cited statute over rode Cruz’ cited statute, but her statute was “more recent”. She then added that it was her statute that was now the foundation for all the pending court cases (against Trump’s immigration policy).
Cruz was then silent, but clearly pondering what the hell she had just said.
AMEN, Get right to the MEAT, skip the fluff.
GIVE US THE PUNCHLINE!
The point, Boss, the point.
She came across as particularly corrupt. I would like to go through her bank records and tax returns.
